Until you break Apache Kafka you don't know how fragile it is. Why would you deliberately break Kafka? Because you want to learn what can go wrong and how to prevent it. When Kafka breaks in production you'll want to fix it as fast as possible. It's cheaper to invest into learning how to chaos test Kafka than it's to hire lawyers because you broke an SLA. The purpose of chaos testing is to see what happens when a service fails. Instead of assertions, chaos tests use monitoring solutions to prove correctness.

It’s impact on all areas of life, from medical research to your next film recommendation from Netflix, is evidence of its wide-ranging capabilities.
Over the past 25 years, computers have slowly encroached into the domain of human intellect, the machines first victory was in 1997 when Kasparov lost to Deep Blue at Chess1. Since then A.I. have continued to expand the games they can beat us at, from Go to Poker, and Shogi to Starcraft2. These achievements of machine learning, whilst shockingly impressive, are in stark contrast to the failures of A.I. in the real world.
Werner Vogels, VP & CTO at Amazon will take to the stage for the opening headline session on day two at World Summit AI 2019 (Thursday 10th October) and ahead of their appearance we asked Werner a few questions about Amazon’s approach to machine learning, AI use for enterprise and which industry is being revolutionised by AI adoption.
