E16: Artificial Intelligence goes Radical with Jordan Jacobs
Play • 1 hr 26 min

The excitement around artificial intelligence has gone "radical". Our guest believes that in time, AI will "eat all software". And PWC says AI will contribute over USD$15 trillion to the global economy by 2030.* On this episode of The Unlimited Podcast -- with the assistance of ChatGPT -- Brian is joined by Jordan Jacobs, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Radical Ventures, a leading venture capital firm focused on investing in transformational AI.

Jordan is also a founder of the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, a director of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, member of the University of Waterloo President’s International Advisory Board, a Director of Tennis Canada, former Chief AI Officer of TD Bank Group, and was a Co-Founder & CEO of Layer 6 AI and Milq Inc. Jordan was also the Founder & CEO of SpyBox Media and spent over a decade as a lawyer specializing in entertainment, media, technology, and sports.

Brian and Jordan discuss Jordan's path to AI venture capital, what AI actually is, how AI is being used today, how it may be used in the future, and much more...including a ChatGPT demo.

Brian also asks Jordan about his time working with Elton John and Elvis Costello and his experience meeting Roger Federer. If you’re a music fan or a tennis player, then this episode is (also) for you!
