“I think there’s a lot of things people get wrong about AI. It is very easy to talk about AI as just the capability to do the same as the human brain does, but that is very different. AI is a part of machine-learning /…/ first there is a machine, which works fundamentally different compared to human brain. You need billions of videos to train AI in order for it to recognize a cat in a video for example, which is something a 3 year old can do very easily.”
In this episode we are interviewing Max Koziolek, co-founder of Spectrm, one of the hottest tech companies in Berlin at the moment. After going through the next media accelerator in Hamburg, Max and his co-founders partnered with Facebook to become one of the first companies to get access to the Facebook Messenger API. Spectrm uses Facebook Messenger and machine learning technology to deliver users more relevant and personalized news content, together with its partners that include established media companies such as Business Insider, Bild and Mic.com.

Here’s a sample of the topics we cover:
- Common misconceptions about artificial intelligence and why Max believes AI is an overrated buzzword.
- Why Max thinks that online content distribution is broken and how chatbots create new opportunities to create personalized content for individual users.
