Embedded Insiders Podcast – How Open is Open and What is GE Thinking?

September 28, 2017 Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director, and Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

This week, the Embedded Insiders briefly consider ABB's acquisition of GE Industrial Solutions, and wonder if GE is going too digital.

Then, the two discuss "open source". The term is widely, and loosely, used these days, making it hard to differentiate between what's really open and what's being guided by the invisible hand of the private sector. Citing examples, the Insiders once again agree to disagree.

Topics include:

  • Industrial IoT
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Open Source Software
  • Open Source Hardware
  • Industry Consortia
