Our 26.1 AI Podcast's global tour continues with a visit with Chris Loy founder of London startup Datasine. Datasine applies machine learning to help companies talk with their customers more meaningfully and at scale. From Datasine's website, "We use machine learning, psychology and cutting edge tech to understand people and the content that appeals to them, and to help our users revolutionise how they engage with their customers at massive scale." Chris shares his personal journey of starting out at Oxford as a student of general physics, moving later as part of a combined bachelors and masters program into astrophysics and particle physics. After working in general programming jobs, Chris started the transition to becoming an expert in machine learning with a degree from University College London with a MSc degree in machine learning.
Brian and Don host Just One Giant Lab founder Leo Blondel. JOGL melds open source software practices with scientific research. Members can treat their research projects like software engineers commit code. Also community spin up groups for research projects like an OpenCovid19 group. From the JOGL website, "[This is] a JOGL program that develops open-source and low-cost tools and methodologies that are safe and easy to use in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The OpenCovid19 program is powered by a global community of 4000+ volunteers and experts who create solutions to better prevent, detect, and treat COVID-19, and to help forecast the pandemic’s evolution." Brian and Don learn from Leo that Montpellier is France's tech capital. The city is home to many of America's tech giants' offices.
