Yotam Orem spent his entire career around big data, but when he looks back, it’s all about the people—the friends, the family, and when it comes to his startup, Mona Labs, the team. In fact, it was the opportunity to build a great team that most attracted Yotam to founding a technology startup.
It began with a phone call from a friend to help solve an embarrassing problem at Google—one of their predictive models had gone from triumph to faceplant. Yotam realized you still need human hands to make AI smart.
On this edition of UpTech Report, Yotam talks about the path that led him to start his own company, and shares his own philosophy on how he brought that great team together.
