Introducing the AI NexusLab Startups

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

This week we’re doing something special on the show, and I’m really excited to share it with you. We spent some time in New York City this week, guests of the fine folks from the Future Labs at NYU Tandon and ff Venture Capital, who are sponsors of this week’s show.

Direct from the NYU/ffVC AI NexusLab startup accelerator program, we spoke with founders from the 5 companies in the inaugural batch of the AI NexusLab program: HelloVera, Klustera,, Cambrian Intelligence, and AlphaVertex. These companies are doing some really interesting things and I think you’ll enjoy hearing their stories. We’re releasing all 6 of these interviews simultaneously, for your binge listening pleasure, as TWIML Talk #18, parts 1 through 5.
