The five senses...touch, sight, smell, taste, and hearing. They are critical to how we perceive the world around us. Without them, we are lost. And as we grow older, they tend to weaken particularly when it comes to sight and hearing. Today’s guest, Andrew Song, is the co-founder and CEO of Whisper AI, and he is on a mission to help give people great hearing regardless of their age.
After graduating from the University of Waterloo with degrees in mathematics and computer science, Andrew went to work at Facebook. While there, he saw firsthand the positive benefits gained from connecting with family and friends but wanted to make more of a direct impact.
After watching his grandfather lose his hearing and consequently, his connection to others and ability to engage socially, he wanted to create a better hearing aid that was smart enough to deduce what was most important for the user to hear. Listen to his whole story as Pieter explores the inspiration and technology of Whisper AI.
