After years of show guests projecting their visions of an executive assistant AI, Babak Pahlavan is building one, over at Silicon Valley startup NinjaTech AI, and he comes on the show to tell us about the challenges of building that and what it will do. He has been working on AI since 2008, when he was the Founder and CEO of his first AI startup named CleverSense. CleverSense was acquired by Google in 2011, where it became an important personalization layer in Google Maps. Babak went on to spend 11 years at Google as a Senior Director of Product Management, where he led and scaled several large products and teams including Google Analytics, Enterprise Measurement Suite and others. He left Google in October of 2022 to found NinjaTech AI in partnership with SRI, which is the original home of Siri.
All this plus our usual look at today’s AI headlines.
