Computer-Vision Vigilance for Loved Ones
Some staggering stats: Over 90 percent of falls in memory-care facilities go unwitnessed, resulting in an industry average discovery time of 40 minutes. Worried that his mother may one day succumb to the history of Alzheimer's disease in her family, computer scientist George Netscher left his Ph.D. work at UC Berkeley's top-ranked AI research lab to launch a company focused on detecting and preventing falls through the use of computer vision and artificial intelligence. That company is SafelyYou, and George along with his COO, Shirley Nickels, join Eclipse Partner Justin Butler to share their inspiring progress and passion for elevating and evolving dementia care.

Modernizing On-Premises Data Center Infrastructure
In our data-driven age, today's mainstream businesses need a combination of both cloud and “on premises” infrastructure with the same level of capabilities as tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft and Google. But the server racks they buy from traditional OEMs are still designed with software and hardware based on legacy architectures from the 1980s and '90s. So says industry veterans Bryan Cantrill and Jessie Frazelle, two of the founders of Oxide Computer Company, which is building a modern, vertically integrated on-prem solution that will allow enterprises to own — not rent — essential cloud capacity. In conversation with Eclipse Partners Seth Winterroth and Kushagra Vaid, Bryan and Jessie also discuss the humanity of their deeply technical venture, through early implementation of their core values in the company and inspirational advice for future founders.
