Episode 10: Karin Golde on AI and data best practices

Also: Perplexity, Anthropic valuations and Chief Justice Roberts weighs in on AI

To kick off 2024, Brian and Sarah welcome guest Karin Golde, the founder of West Valley AI and an AWS alum to talk about how she advises companies getting started when they deploy artificial intelligence. What are best practices? What should be avoided? And what needs to be defined going in?

In this week’s news, funding gets the spotlight as Perplexity raises $73.6 million and Anthropic’s reported $18.4 billion valuation raises some eyebrows. Then, the conversation turns to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinions on AI and how it should be treated in the legal world.

Tune in for all of this, along with a CES 2024 edition of "Two truths and ‘AI."
