A Primer on AI – Alexandr Wang

Artificial intelligence looking at smart city | A Primer on AI - Alexandr Wang

Primer on AI | My guest today is Alexandr Wang, the CEO, and founder of Scale AI. Alexandr founded Scale in 2016, having been inspired to accelerate the development of AI through his work at Quora and his studies at MIT.

Specifically, Alexandr realized there was a lack of infrastructure solutions for producing high-quality data, the lifeblood of AI models.

Today, Scale provides data solutions to leading AI teams at Meta, Microsoft, OpenAI, Flexport, the US Air Force, and many others. This time last year, the business was valued at over $7 billion.

Our conversation is a primer on AI. We discuss the building blocks beneath successful artificial intelligence, AI’s role in both the public and private sector, and why data is the new code.

We also cover the similarities and differences between AI and software from an investing perspective and what inspiration Scale takes from AWS. Please enjoy my great discussion with Alexandr Wang.
