Welcome to another episode of Develomentor. Today's guest is Dr. Chris Bouton. Dr Bouton is the CEO of Vyasa Analytics, applying novel deep learning (ie A.I.) approaches for life sciences and healthcare clients.

"Deep learning algorithms are basically the reason that everyone is talking about AI right now."

--Dr. Bouton

As a kid, Chris Bouton loved sharks. Sharks turned into biology and biology turned into molecular biology, which evolved into computational biology. Chris followed his curiosity and received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University

In this episode we’ll also cover:

  1. Why did Chris bootstrap instead of raising money when starting Entagen
  2. Why AI is just a fancy word for deep learning
  3. Important personality traits for any entrepreneur
  4. How Chris's Ph.D. in molecular neurobiology makes it extra satisfying to build AI algorithms
