You know AI is the answer to some of your key challenges, but how do you find solutions that you know will work on your infrastructure?
Spoiler alert! Before I dive in, I’m going to go ahead and give you the tl;dr answer right up front: https://builders.intel.com/ai/solutionscatalog. If you’re in less of a hurry, I invite you to read on.
Many of you will recognize this post’s title as a reference to the popular phrase ‘who watches the watchers?’ That original term encapsulates the idea that political and security power structures require transparency and oversight. While that remains true, here I’ve re-imagined the phrase to instead refer to another all too common issue; bootstrapping (or just ‘booting‘). Often referred to as ‘chicken or egg’ problems, challenges with bootstrapping come down to creating self-starting systems.

Through the several tasks that we spent together in a professional environment, I have seen Chris accomplish things that many would consider impossible – both as a professional and technically – and neither has been a disappointment. Chris is a calculated risk-taker. He has an uncanny way of determining what the target market needs and has the capability of tweaking his designs and implementations accordingly. As a pragmatic leader and a realist, he can grasp ideas in a holistic manner and still pay attention to minor details. Chris has a well-deserved reputation as someone who is diligent and personable – two qualities that define him completely. As someone who is a creative thinker and possesses a can-do attitude, Chris is a pleasure to work with.

In a wireless organization the network your products operate on needs to be reliable, dependable and operating at top efficiency. Chris made sure that was a reality. Chris was a leader in the day to day operation of our network, on initiating improvement designs for the future and helping out the other departments to close performance gaps. There was never a problem to hard to solve, a solution he was not willing to seek out or a cutting edge idea he hadn’t already researched.
Chris consistently generates and delivers on new and creative ideas both within the guided bounds of a project or team goal as well as when left unbounded and allowed to explore.
