Byron Reese: Hello, this is Voices in AI brought to you by Gigaom. I am your host, Byron Reese. Today we welcome Jeff Dean onto the show. Jeff is a Google Senior Fellow and he leads the Google Brain project. His work probably touches my life, and maybe yours, about every hour of every day, so I can’t wait to begin the conversation. Welcome to the show Jeff.
Jeff Dean: Hi Byron, this is Jeff Dean. How are you?
I’m really good, Jeff, thanks for taking the time to chat. You went to work for Google, I believe, in the second millennium. Is that true?
Yes, I did, in 1999.
So the company wasn’t even a year old at that time.
