Alan Patterson and Darren Garvey take us on their journey to date - linking the appeal of small companies, their passion optimising and automating things, and their desire to show how tools fit together to solve bigger and bigger problems.
With over half a dozen exits to the likes of Rolls Royce, Amazon, BT, Oracle, and Google they don’t believe in optimizing for an exit, but in building value and doing a good job.
We look at the brief history of AI - SymbolicAI, ConnectionistAI, MachineLearning and DeepLearning - it’s all AI!
We also talk similarities and differences between being a startup in the UK and the US – the short runway, the investment and VC culture, and the engineers.
And of course, we talk about BeyondMath and how this innovative startup is transforming engineering design in key focussed industries using AI.
In this week’s news, we reflect back on the Innovate Cambridge Conference. Secondmind, the Cambridge-based automotive tech pioneer who we talked to in episode 50, has scooped a major international award - the AutoTech AI Innovation of the Year award., and exciting news from Gerard Grech this week. You’ll remember we talked to Gerard on episode 51 about tech on national scale. It has now been announced that he is running a new programme in Cambridge Enterprise called Founders.
A reminder that we have released the new version of our Cambridge Ecosystem map. You can download the wall chart here.
