AlexandrWang talks about humanity's relationship to artificial intelligence and what the future may bring.
AlexandrWang founded Scale while at MIT - studying mathematics and computer science, he discovered the potential of AI and decided to start a company to help customers build long-term AI strategies by providing the highest quality AI data and tools. Prior to enrolling at MIT, Alex worked at Quora and Addepar where he noticed the inefficiencies of developing AI infrastructure. He recognized that he could accelerate companies’ abilities to deploy AI by combining a machine learning-powered data labeling system with human insight to ensure models are trained on high-quality, trusted datasets. In four years and under Alex's leadership, Scale AI went from a data labeling startup to a platform providing AI infrastructure for any business looking to accelerate their AI strategy. The company has grown to a $7bn valuation, serving hundreds of customers across multiple industries including clients such as Instacart, Brex, OpenAI, Toyota, Etsy, U.S. Army and Samsung. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
