Remy Ludo Gieling interviewt Jim Stolze over kunstmatige intelligentie in het algemeen (‘hou nou toch eens op over Terminator’) en de toegevoegde waarde van Aigency voor klanten.
Ja, elk bedrijf kan zijn eigen machine learning-projecten gaan starten (vooral doen!), maar zou het niet fijn zijn om daar wat experts bij te halen die je kunnen weerhouden van onnodige fouten of die door hun ervaring het experiment béter dan gepland laten verlopen?
“Everybody wants to be in this sector now, but when I first started Aigency things were still in their early stage. I could see all of this potential and I couldn’t help but start to question what it meant for business, and what it means for society,” says Stolze. “I decided to quit everything that I did. I fired my clients, I left my work as ambassador for Ted.com here in Europe, and I began figuring out how to match algorithms with businesses.”
Forbes spoke with Jim Stolze, Co-founder of aigency — an Amsterdam-based company that recruits AI and humans for work. Kind of an employment company run by three humans overseeing 59 robots (actually computers working on algorithms created at the University of Amsterdam to solve problems).
Stolze was addressing reporters in StartUp Village at the Amsterdam Science Park on the sidelines of the first World Summit AI in Amsterdam October 11-12. A tech entrepreneur and former ambassador for TED.com, setting up TED events all over Europe and the Middle East, Stolze founded aigency four years ago as “the network that connects data-sets with algorithms, business with talent.” In case it’s not obvious, the “aigency” is a reference to “artificial intelligence.”
