Alex Poon AI automation from email to cures

This episode introduces our audience to perhaps one of the rarest AI practitioners, an AI serial entrepreneur. Alex Poon with his first AI startup x.ai, helped users recapture lost time spent scheduling meetings. X.ai also rehabilitated the term AI after a long winter for the discipline. Today’s visit with Alex, we revisit early days when he built x.ai and had to custom craft many tools available as readily accessible open source projects today. Our guest provides a comparison on building an AI startup a short five years ago and what's it take today. We discuss the high stakes involved when applying AI to human lives at AiCure. This week’s guest votes for AI as a positive force for advancing human knowledge and lives.
