Danny May, the founder and CEO of the first real time voice translation company Lingmo, was a plumber until 5 years ago.
And yes you have read it correctly he was a plumber and soon will be a guest on my YouTube channel: Conversations in Artificial Intelligence.
During the summer of 2014, he went to China on trip and risked to be arrested because his mobile app translated a question to a Policeman wrongly: Basically he told the police man << I love you!>>
Danny went to work and despite the fact that he did not understand anything about Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) he was determined to solve the problem of real time voice translation.
Five year after his company is powering customer support centers and UN international meeting allowing people to talk real time in 29 languages.
How did he do that?
Simple, he followed the recipe I have been telling you since I started emailing you:
1) He did understand the customer/user problem very well, better than renowned competitors like Google.
2) He realized he needed to understand if A.I. could support the product requirements. H realized that voice understanding was the crucial component of the technology
3) H got significantly involved in the product development process, iterating time and time again with a team of engineers he had hired.
This is a living example of our central message: Innovation in A.I. will be driven by the problem aware managers, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, professionals (doctors, lawyers…. )

Listen to me: companies are eager to find people with ideas to monetize A.I. The big VPs, SVPs etc… have no clue of what to do and they are in desperate need of ideas.
If you do not catch the A.I. trend now you will regret it a few years from now.
