This week's guest is one of the top technologists working in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Christopher Nguyen. With a career spanning four decades, Christopher’s tech bona fides are second to none.
Since fleeing Vietnam in 1978, this multiple-time tech founder has played key roles in everything from building the first flash memory transistors at Intel to spearheading the development of Google Apps as its first Engineering Director. Today, he’s become an outspoken proponent of the emerging field of “AI Engineering” and a thought leader in the space of ethical, human-centric AI. With his latest company, Aitomatic, he’s hoping to redefine how companies approach AI in the context of life-critical, industrial applications.
You may already know that my new book, That Little Voice in Your Head, is due to release on May 26th. It is my deepest dive yet into understanding and changing your brain (with a technology metaphor driving the whole thing, to boot). I'm certainly proud of it, but I know that new media coverage will soon transition from talking about the crucially important message of my last book, Scary Smart. For that reason, I had to have Chris on the show to give this discussion a whole new level of color and depth that none of us can afford to ignore.
