Kenny Daniel / Algorithmia Founder

This week we have Algorithmia founder and CTO Kenny Daniel. Algorithmia has grown tenfold over the past six years, and the startup just completed a $25m Series B raise in May. Perhaps our densest episode to date, we manage to pack a lot into a nearly perfect 26.1 minutes. We cover in this episode -- Algorithmia’s founding story with Kenny’s fellow founder Diego Oppenheimer, challenges bridging the culture between traditional software professionals and the current practices of AI professionals, needs for analogs for prosaic software tools tailored for AI deployment, and will the data engineer job title survive as AI matures.
