It seems you can’t throw a rock these days without it glancing off a shiny new application of ‘artificial intelligence’ or ‘machine learning’. Indeed, the promise of ‘AIOps’ proposes a transformational effect on our lives as operators and developers of complex systems. What, though, is AIOps? This is a question that many people are happy to answer, but I decided to take a deeper look. What I found may shock you, and it’s that I learned more about AIOps by cooking rice than I did from hours of research.

This talk will introduce you to the secrets behind AIOps, what you can learn from rice cookers, and a few takeaways about the role and application of automation in complex systems.
