Episode 021 - Zeff w/ Ben Taylor
Play • 39 min
Scatter Podcast interview with Ben Taylor, Co-Founder and Chief AI Officer at Zeff. I met Ben at the Data Science GO conference in 2018 and was blown away by his artificial intelligence experience and thoughts about how to break into data science. Self-described "PhD dropout," Ben taught himself programming and data science and has a sincere passion for transforming the field with AI. Prior to founding Zeff, he held various roles including hedge fund Quantitative Analyst, Data Scientist, and Chief Data Scientist. He attributes his success in part to his stubbornness and continuously pushing current technological limits.

Ben discusses a fascinating AI side project that he's been developing - an AI-operated Call of Duty player that battles humans over Xbox Live! We talk about career tips for students, resources for business managers, hiring complexities, data science conferences, and how to find balance between work and family life. Great conversations and I had a blast having him on the show. Enjoy!
