Mileage Matters: Episode 26

In this week’s episode of Mileage Matters, we explore the Quartz article “Researchers built an invisible backdoor to hack AI’s decisions complications in using pre-made AI algorithms with hidden backdoors,” and looked at the complexities this could create for security. We discuss the importance of being proactive in recruiting and uncompromising on finding top talent. We also referenced the book Give and Take in relation to the treatment of founders and entrepreneurs. The ban of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in China brought question to the future of crypto-currencies around the world. Lastly, we noted the speed at which new data is created today, compared to the last 20 years.

Listen in below as we openly discuss the best opportunities of the week. We’ll see you next Friday.

Mileage Matters is recorded live at the start of every Drive Capital Partner meeting. We kick off our week with a discussion of the things that caught our attention over the past seven days. We’re going to begin sharing these musings in the form of a short podcast. Our goal is to give entrepreneurs a glimpse into how we think about the markets we cover (and more). We’d love to hear from you, and learn what’s catching your attention these days too. Let us know what you think on Twitter or drop us a line.
