About This Episode

This time on Startup Foundations, we chatted with Chris Van Pelt, co-founder of Weights & Biases and previously co-founder and CTO of CrowdFlower/Figure Eight. We talk about neural networking, autonomous vehicles, Chris' experience building two companies in the AI and machine learning space, and whether we have to worry about machines ever taking control over humans. Chris also shares his insights regarding different approaches to selling developer's tools and highlights the effectiveness of the bottom-up approach to customer acquisition, where the developers themselves are the ones driving the adoption. We ask Chris about ethical issues surrounding the development of AI, particularly in the space of autonomous vehicles, and whether we can expect to see the singularity within our lifespans.

Chris also shares how he got into entrepreneurship, got his first check from investors, and explains the division of labor in a company with three co-founders.
