In this episode, I'm seeking to demystify the Gartner 2020 Emerging Technologies Hype Cycle. I'm going to talk about the good, the bad, and yes... the ugly as well. As many of you already know, I've got a little experience in this space (especially because I write them for Gartner). I wanted to record this video because I feel it's important to get a bit of an insiders view on this very unique hype cycle.
