This week my guest is Scott Stephenson. Scott is co-founder & CEO of Deepgram, a startup developing an AI-based platform for indexing and searching audio and video. Scott and I cover a ton of interesting topics including applying machine learning techniques to particle physics, his time in a lab two miles below the surface of the earth, applying neural networks to audio, and Kur, the deep learning framework that his company developed and open-sourced.
