Cloud and AI: Their future is bright, but complexity management is crucial

Cloud—despite some recent challenges—is the future of IT. That future is also increasingly intertwined with artificial intelligence (AI). In this episode, David Linthicum sits down with eWeek’s James Maguire to discuss the future of cloud and AI. According to James, cloud and AI will grow to be symbiotic and eventually merge, but that will only add to the complexity management challenge. In the future, superclouds will help mitigate complexity, and AI will be their engine for success.


Artificial intelligence will need cloud to reach its highest potential. There's a very powerful symbiotic relationship there.

James Maguire is eWeek's Editor-in-Chief and has been reporting on emerging technology for more than 15 years. He has covered the gamut of enterprise and consumer technology, and regularly communicates with leading IT newsmakers, vendors, and analysts.
