The next 10 years in AI: From bits to things, from big data in the lab to expert knowledge in the field. Featuring Landing AI Founder Andrew Ng
- March 21st 2022
Did you ever feel you've had enough of your current line of work, and wanted to shift gears? If you have, you're definitely not alone.
Besides the Great Resignation, however, there are also less radical approaches, like the one Andrew Ng is taking.
Ng is among the most prominent figures in AI. Founder of deeplearning.ai, Co-Chairman and Co-Founder of Coursera, and Adjunct Professor at Stanford University. He was also Chief Scientist at Baidu Inc., and Founder & Lead for the Google Brain Project.
Yet, his current priority has shifted -- from bits to things, as he puts it.
Andrew Ng is also the Founder & CEO of Landing AI, a startup working on facilitating the adoption of AI in manufacturing since 2017. This effort has apparently contributed in shaping Ng's perception of what it takes to get AI to work beyond Big Tech, in what he calls the data-centric approach.
We connected with Ng to discuss the data-centric approach to AI, and how it relates to his work with Landing AI and the big picture of AI today.

Some might call this futurism; let's just say it's connecting the dots.
Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.
Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
