We've already talked quite a bit about the Algorithms, Machines, and People lab at U.C. Berkeley (AMPLab) -- all about making sense of big data -- but what happens when the entire world moves towards artificial intelligence -- and the need to make intelligent decisions on that data?

In this episode of the a16z Podcast (in conversation with general partner Peter Levine and Sonal Chokshi), computer science professor, entrepreneur, and lab head Ion Stoica shares the elements of a good decision; the evolution of open source and community; and what interesting projects -- trends! -- are coming next.
