Season 2 Episode 16
Every business wants to be a data-driven business these days; basing decisions on tangible facts derived from historical precedents and clear-cut numbers. But that’s a lot easier said than done.
This episode’s guest, Amit Prakash, is on a mission to change that. Based on his experience working on Microsoft’s Bing and then at Google working on Google Brain, he co-founded Thoughtspot to make querying data as easy as having a simple conversation. Thoughtspot provides artificial intelligence (AI) and search-driven analytics.
Amit shares the story behind building the massive search system, his views on relational search, and how to teach a machine what a user thinks is most interesting.
