About this event

Building an AI Company from Nothing

Tak Lo is director at Techstars London. Techstars is one of the pioneers of the startup accelerator movement. The accelerator has on its team Skype co-founder Jaan Tallinn and Jon Bradford, the former managing director of Techstars London.

Tak Lo是Techstars London的总监。Techstars是创业加速器运动中的先行者。Skype的联合创始人Jaan Tallinn和Techstars伦敦的前总经理都曾是这个加速器团队中的一员。

Tak Lo is creating startup leaders in Asia. He is a also Partner at Zeroth, an AI/ML-focused early stage funding program. The accelerator is named after zero-based numbering, which is basically a way of numbering that starts from zero (as opposed to one, which we normally use when counting things). Zero-based numbering is commonly used in computer programming. Previously, he sourced, invested, and mentored companies in the $3mn Techstars London seed fund. He has worked with over 50 companies from the Asian, European, and NYC startup communities angel investing, founding, and mentoring startups, including Eleven Aceletator, Techstars, Spark Labs, Plug and Play, Upscale, etc. Tak started his career in the US Army. He graduated from the London Business School and the University of Chicago.

Tak Lo也专注于发掘亚洲创业领袖,在一个专注于人工智能和机器学习的早期投资项目Zeroth中担任合伙人。这个加速器的名字源于英文中从0(zero)数起的计数方法(不同于我们通常从1数起的计数习惯)。这一方法通常用于计算机编程中。Tak曾在Techstars伦敦的3百万美元种子基金项目中创立和投资企业以及以导师的身份参与其中,通过这些方式Tak已经与来自亚洲、欧洲和纽约超过50家的创业企业完成合作,包括Eleven Aceletator、Techstars、Spark Labs、Plug and Play和Upscale等等。Tak毕业于伦敦商学院和芝加哥大学,他的职业生涯起步于美国军队。

“There’s a ton of vernacular about Skynet – which is bollocks. We can harness AI’s superpower by empowering founders with AI,” says Tak Lo.

Tak曾说过:“关于Skynet的诸多行话都是胡说八道,创始人们掌握人工智能将有助于充分发挥人工智能的超能力。”
