Ewan talks to Director Joe Berlinger, and subject Tony Robbins from ‘I Am Not Your Guru’.

Joe Berlinger’s twelfth feature documentary, captures internationally renowned life and business strategist and best-selling author, Tony Robbins, in a revelatory cinéma vérité film that goes behind the scenes of his mega once-a-year seminar “Date With Destiny,” attended by over 2,500 people, to give an insider look at how one man can affect millions. Granted never before seen access, this film is an emotional tour de force, pulling back the curtain on Tony Robbins and unveiling the inner-workings of this life-altering and controversial event, the zealous participants and the man himself.

Ewan talks to Leslie Saxon and Todd Richmond about Virtual Physicians:

In the not-too-distant healthcare future, “virtually cloned” physicians will operate in AI-enabled, mixed reality clinics that offer 24/7 access and consultation. Aided by IoT-enabled wearable devices, implantable and ingestible sensors, virtually cloned physicians will collect on-demand diagnostic data to fuel proactive, seamless patient care extending beyond the walls of clinics, labs and hospitals. This will enable doctors to extend their expertise anywhere, to anyone, at any time, eliminating global healthcare access barriers and quality of care. Join us to explore the revolutionary role virtual humans may play in your healthcare future! Part of the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series.

SXSW Baby Interview: Silicon Cowboys

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Ewan talks to Producer Ross Dinerstein, Director Jason Cohen, and Compaq Co-Founder Rod Canion from the documentary film ‘Silicon Cowboys’.

Launched in 1982 by three friends in a Houston diner, Compaq Computer set out to build a portable PC to take on IBM, the world’s most powerful tech company. Many had tried cloning the industry leader’s code, only to be trounced by IBM and its high-priced lawyers. Silicon Cowboys explores the remarkable David vs. Goliath story, and eventual demise, of Compaq, an unlikely upstart who altered the future of computing and helped shape the world as we know it today. Directed by Oscar-nominated director Jason Cohen, the film offers a fresh look at the explosive rise of the 1980′s PC industry and is a refreshing alternative to the familiar narratives of Jobs, Gates, and Zuckerberg.
