Investor Connect – Jon Glesinger and Leslie Ackerman of Comprindeo

August 23, 2019 by investor

In this episode of Investor Connect, Hall is joined by Jon Glesinger and Leslie Ackerman of Comprindeo. Jon started his career in the tech sector in the 80’s, coming out with the first IBM computers. This then led him to his first computer startup involving design of CAD/CAM. Working extensively with unstructured data around people led Jon to build platforms in the HR space, ultimately leading to Comprindeo.

After college, Leslie’s met musicians in London who were having trouble finding affordable studio space. They decided to purchase and rent out studios to musicians in need. At the same time, Leslie was involved with a band that was one of the first to sell albums online. This led to a development of a merchandise platform to sell albums and marketing materials.

In this episode you will learn why they focus on AI and deep learning technology. More than half of the internet data is already in video format of some kind. This presents a challenge – how do you find out the content of podcasts and videos online? Jon and Leslie explain how Comprindeo uses AI to unbundle that hidden data.

Jon and Leslie share what advice they’d give to investors joining the AI space as well as what they should know about AI and deep learning before investing. They’ll also discuss challenges you have to overcome when you’re building a deep learning or AI application.
