✨ If I had to pick one AI tool... this would be it.

On Perplexity with co-founder Aravind Srinivas
8

There are so many new artificial intelligence products out there. Which ones are really worth your time?

If I had to pick one, it wouldn’t be ChatGPT or Claude. It would be Perplexity.ai.

Since 1 October I’ve logged more than 268 queries on Perplexity from my laptop alone (I use it on my phone, too). It’s displacing a large number of my Google searches.

I decided to speak to the co-founder and CEO of Perplexity, Aravind Srinivas. Aravind and his team are hot off the heels of a $500 million funding round led by IVP.

You can watch our discussion in the video embedded in this post. The full hour-long discussion and transcript1 are open to paying members of Exponential View.

Of the many brilliant insights in our conversation, I was particularly excited to cover the following nine areas…

  • Google’s innovator’s dilemma.

  • The fuzzy art of shipping products built on AI models.

  • AI as ignition for a new era of human entrepreneurship.

  • Mapping out the route to AGI.

  • Going from from autocomplete to autopilot in the coming years.

  • Safety in a world with billions of AIs.

  • AI open-source: democratizing progress or losing control?

  • Beyond the technology: how do we get the public behind this journey?
