Episode Info:

Dr. Eric Daimler is an authority in Artificial Intelligence & Robotics with over 20 years of experience in the field as an entrepreneur, executive, investor, technologist, and policy advisor. Daimler has co-founded six technology companies that have done pioneering work in fields ranging from software systems to statistical arbitrage. Daimler is the author of the forthcoming book Every Business is an AI Business, a guidebook for entrepreneurs, engineers, policymakers, and citizens on how to understand—and benefit from—the unfolding revolution in AI & Robotics. A frequent speaker, lecturer, and commentator, he works to empower communities and citizens to leverage AI & Robotics. For a more sustainable, secure, and prosperous future.

In this episode, Eric explains how he has a vivid memory of getting a computer at the age of nine. He loves the machine, and even at such a young age saw the freedom a computer allows. Early in his career, Eric knew he wanted to work with brilliant and motivated people. When he was in New York, he saw the Netscape browser and instantly recognized the world was going to change. This inspired him to get out and find opportunities on the west coast.
