Practical AI for Startups

About this Event

Does your startup effectively utilize AI technology? If not, then join us on May 1st at the Meltwater headquarters in San Francisco for another event in our Turing Distinguished CTO Series. The night will feature a presentation by Turing Co-founder and CTO, Vijay Krishnan.

Turing is the second AI-based company that Vijay has been both Co-founder and CTO of, with the first being his company Rover- an app which used machine learning to match users with content, tailored to their interests. Rover was successfully acquired by Revcontent in 2016.

Turing's mission is to match elite, pre-vetted global remote software developers, engineers, and designers with companies in need of their services. The platform utilizes AI to analyze data from various sources, in order to build deep profiles that it then matches to companies looking for engineers.

Between his two companies, Vijay has mastered the integration of AI and Machine Learning in his business models. Attendees of our "Practical AI for Startups" event will leave understanding how they can use AI technology to better their companies.

3 things covered in the talk:

1) What are the new opportunities in the Deep Learning era of AI?
2) How do you build effective AI when you are short of data and time to market?
3) How do you build your AI team?


In addition to the presentation, there will also be a Q&A portion of the evening with both Vijay, as well as the CTO of Meltwater, Aditya Jami.

Aditya Jami is the CTO of Meltwater, responsible for overall technical strategy with special emphasis on the company’s AI & Data science initiatives across all product lines. He is motivated by solving problems in the areas of large-scale machine learning on the cloud, information network analysis, knowledge graphs, and multi-modal data management. He was a founding member of the Cloud Solutions team at Netflix, where he built the first Chaos Monkey (later extended to Simian Army) that ran on its production cloud, Cassandra/Priam – as well as several other cloud migration initiatives. At Yahoo, he worked on a real-time data platform that collects and analyzes 300 Billion web events (10TB) a day to power its news feed recommendation and behavioral targeting advertising models. He served as Chief Architect of the cross-university joint project called RoboBrain – a large-scale computational system that learns from publicly available Internet resources, computer simulations, real-life robot trials. RoboBrain was listed among the MIT Technology Review’s Top 10 Breakthrough Technologies in 2016.
