CNBC – The Cloud Challenge
In early 2017 Maddie completed filming an 8 part Documentary series for Microsoft, “The Cloud Challenge”, which will air monthly on CNBC throughout the year.
The Cloud Challenge explores the use and development of pioneering cloud technologies in the modern world, including the first AI generated screenplay in New York , cloud-connected water monitors to help oyster farmers in Australia and much more! From sport and art to healthcare and dairy farming, the series explores the cloud technology that is powering innovation and collaboration.
As well as anchoring the show, in each episode Maddie sets a tech expert a ‘Cloud Challenge’ and together they go about ‘hacking’ and engineering everyday objects and connecting them to the cloud to solve real-world problems. Over the course of the series, Maddie and her team of ‘makers’ create cloud controlled greenhouses, golf bags, money boxes, pill dispensers, graffiti arms, guitars, RC trikes and 3D printed laser scanners!
