January 11, 2018

As we advance further in AI and machine learning, the world is seeing an intelligence layer that will bring a lot of value. What does the future of these innovations look like in relation to our daily lives? What are the new opportunities for startups in this new realm of intelligent enterprise and AI assistance? Which industries are these changes going to touch? On this episode, we are joined by Venrock partner, Brian Ascher, to have a dialogue about surfing, business intelligence and the exciting future.

A lot of people want to be better. It’s a little harder to be different. -Brian Ascher

Takeaways

  • It’s not about work-life balance– it’s about harmony.
  • The future is software and hardware that solve problems and deliver a valuable experience.
  • The opportunity for startups going forward is in data acquisition

In this new realm of intelligent enterprise and AI assistance, deep learning and the enormous data sets that go with it will be able to solve big hairy problems for users. When intelligence is weaved into daily life, it won’t just be about suggesting what to buy, what to listen to or what to watch. It will touch realms like biotech, health and security.

The machines of the future will learn your habits, make suggestions, see how you react, and then do more of that for you. It’s going to be a solution to problems that we never could solve, and this is just the beginning.
