Listen to our podcast on artificial intelligence, consumer AI, and the future of work.
Today’s amazing guest, Jesus Mantas of IBM, joins us to talk about Artificial Intelligence, its main consumer and business applications, and how IBM is addressing the risks of AI.
IBM is an incredible company. Not only is it more than 100 years old (a feat only 4 companies in the Dow Jones can claim); IBM has ridden the wave of tech innovation decade after decade, with its employees earning five Nobel Prizes, four Turing Awards, five National Medals of Technology, and five National Medals of Science. IBM is now a global leader in crucial technologies including blockchain, cognitive, AI, cloud, PaaS/ SaaS, cyber security and much more. For a long time, Wall Street was critical of IBM’s “moonshot” investments in AI and quantum computing, but it has survived over the decades in the turbulence of the tech industry by making such big bets.
Jesus Mantas is from Spain, lives in Austin, and is a Managing Partner at IBM with accountability for Cognitive. He is also CSO of IBM’s consulting business. He is, in some ways, typical IBM: a geek through and through, exemplified by his engineering background and lifelong fascination with AI. But he is a geek who specializes in helping businesses exploit new technology for consumer and business benefit, and he is helping lead one of history’s most groundbreaking companies into a future of responsible, transparent Artificial Intelligence.
