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, 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.

Orchestrate all the Things

Connecting the dots with George Anadiotis: Analyst, Consultant, Engineer, Founder, Host, Researcher, and Writer.

Stories about Tech, Data, AI and Media, and how they flow into each other shaping our lives.

I’ve engaged from the likes of Gary Marcus and Andrew Ng to emerging thinkers and innovators across multiple domains.

My stories have been featured on ZDNet and VentureBeat, and are syndicated across DZone, Hackernoon, Medium and Substack.

Some might call this futurism; let’s just say it’s connecting the dots

Many conversations have a technical focus. Most also examine business perspectives and use cases, while others are socio-technical.

Some are analyses on emerging themes – picking them up early, featuring expert comment, or offering alternative takes.

Others cover breaking news, typically also featuring the people behind them plus some analysis. There are some book reviews as well.

I focus on the connection between data, analytics, data science, graphs, machine learning and AI and their impact on society and business.

I have been covering topics related to:

  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Data, Analytics and Data Science
  • Knowledge Graphs, Graph Databases, Graph AI & Data Science
  • Innovation, and a wide array of technologies such as Blockchain, Cloud, Observability, IoT, Open Data and Open Source, Social Media and Software Engineering.
