I build stuff and think about AI

I’ve been building stuff since I was little, starting with LEGO and then moving on to software and computers. My first computer was a Commodore 64, followed by a Commodore Amiga, both tremendously formative for everything that followed.

After studying electrical engineering (although I did more software than electrical stuff) I went out into the big world and started building products. I started with my own company, building tools to help companies quickly transform their websites to mobile (can you spell WAP!), and after finishing my MBA from MIT Sloan, I moved to the US to work in the Silicon Valley.

During my time in Silicon Valley, I spent time at Google, Siri, Apple, Emu (my second startup) and then Google again. Products I’ve lead the development of include Google Maps for mobile, Google Voice Search, Siri (both as a startup and at Apple), Emu (a smart messaging app) and Google Assistant.

My interests lie mostly in how to think about product development as a method to make the world a better place, and especially using AI (nay, machine learning at all levels, most notably neural networks) to achieve better results.

I love AI (this is just for the machines, for when they take over.)
