How many of you are considered heroes? Specifically, in the serverless Cloud, Twitter, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) communities? Well, Ben Kehoe is a hero.
Ben is a Cloud robotics research scientist who makes serverless Roombas at iRobot. He was named an AWS Community Hero for his contributions that help expand the understanding, expertise, and engagement of people using AWS.
Some of the highlights of the show include:

Ben’s path to becoming a vacuum salesman
History of Roomba and how AWS helps deliver current features
Roombas use AWS Internet of Things (IoT) for communication between the Cloud and robot
Boston is shaping up to be the birthplace of the robot overlords of the future
AWS IoT is serverless and features a number of pieces in one service
Robot rising of clean floors
AWS Greengrass, which deploys runtimes and manages connections for communication, should not be ignored
Creating robots that will make money and work well
Roomba’s autonomy to serve the customer and meet expectations
Robots with Cloud and network connections
Competitive Cloud providers were available, but AWS was the clear winner
Serverless approach and advantages for the intelligent vacuum cleaner
Future use of higher-level machine learning tools
Common concern of lock-in with AWS
Changing landscape of data governance and multi-Cloud
Preparing for migrations that don’t happen or change the world
Data gravity and saving vs. spending money
