PG Podcast 12 - Adam Marcus on human-assisted A.I.
August 2016 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Adam Marcus (@marcua) is co-founder and CTO at B12, a startup that specializes in people-powered artificial intelligence. Adam and I were in the exact same Ph.D. generation (2006–2012), even though he went to MIT while I was at Stanford. We ended up meeting serendipitously in summer 2007 when we were both interns at Google and then kept in touch in the ensuing years.
In this PG Podcast, Adam introduces the futuristic-sounding topic of human-assisted A.I., which his company is now bringing to the world. We discuss how we can get machines to help humans do what humans are best at, and what that means for the future of work. We also talk about the interplay between academia and industry, and how to keep a foot in both worlds.
