AI Trainers / Jeremy Waite / Chief Strategy Officer / IBM

"My goal is to inspire other people to do what inspires them" - this week's Shiny New Object Podcast is an interview with the annoyingly talented Jeremy Waite - Chief Strategy Officer for IBM.

We talk about a brand new industry of "AI Trainers" that use human beings to mine data to train AIs on. If AI is an engine - then data is its fuel. If businesses are going to use AI effectively they will need data that their competitors don't have. Jeremy opened my eyes to a new world of technology that could put marketers years ahead of their competition.

We also talk about car crashes, giraffe training and watching his twin daughters survive birth despite being given a 0% chance to live.

Jeremy is a constant inspiration to me - I hope you enjoy listening to this podcast as much as I did recording it.
