Machine learning and start-ups

Matt Clifford  | 

“What can machine learning do? You know, it's like having a million interns. It's not they can do everything that your core business needs to be able to do, but there are some things they can do very well. And if you can have a million of them, then there are things you can achieve that would be almost impossible to achieve with human scale, with normal numbers of people.”

In this week’s episode of The G Word, Chris Wigley is joined by Matt Clifford, co-founder and CEO of Entrepreneur First and board member at Code for Girls. Matt holds degrees from Cambridge and MIT, where he was a Kennedy Scholar, and was awarded an MBE for services to business in the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Today, Matt talks about successful start-ups, tech developments within genomics and the value of investors. He also discusses his work with Entrepreneur First and the power of machine learning.
