    Women startup founders give valuable tips on how to succeed in tech space

    NEW YORK--Who’s stopping women from succeeding in the tech startup world? The male-dominated VC world or even their fellow women?

    Five women panelists at the Disruptive Technologies meetup last January 25 at Microsoft were in agreement: They face many challenges with just not VCs dominated by men but with their gender as well, although they see the latter less of a problem in the tech space.

    AI still stuck and what-if scenarios for Bloomberg at Data-Driven meetup

    NEW YORK--”Why is AI (artificial intelligence) stuck?” asked Gary Marcus of Geometric Intelligence.”Because it has fallen in love with statistics and big data.” He was showing how, in so many ways, AI is not where we thought it would be by now. For example, one would expect translation online by now to be more precise but not, really. Quoting Peter Thiel, he also said: “We wanted flying cars instead we got 140 characters,” in reference to Twitter, of course.
