✨ If I had to pick one AI tool... this would be it.
On Perplexity with co-founder Aravind Srinivas
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?
Azeem Azhar: Aravind, thanks for taking a few moments off the rocket ship to speak to me.
