I have a CS degree from Georgia Tech. I started off as a C programmer in 1988 in Charlotte, NC working on SNA networks and APPC in particular. I moved to Silicon Valley in 1990 to join Oracle as a programmer in the Desktop Products Division and the Network Products Division. I eventually rose to Director of Engineering at Oracle and managed the development of the original Oracle Internet Server. After that I worked in four startups in Silicon Valley. I've hired and managed teams of up to 100 (including engineers in China and India and remote/hybrid engineers).
Serial entrepreneur, consultant, investor and mentor. Expert at bringing innovative products to market through modern sales & marketing tactics and strategies. Passionate about startups and the role of entrepreneurs in society. I love applying proven systems and modern technologies to solve business challenges and drive better decisions.
It's been known for a while that when people discuss important decisions, using visual aids and physical props, it tangibly enhances the team's creativity and ability to focus on the most significant aspects of the decision at hand. Conducting this exercise in a fun, unfamiliar environment makes the whole process even more conducive to creative, out-of-the-box thinking. This idea is behind the setup of many design-thinking and ideation rooms across the world. This 3D-AI hackathon gave us the opportunity to explore the idea further. Our team came up with a concrete business scenario, and an ideal workflow to support it. Although our final implementation fell a bit short of this grand vision, the exercise allowed us to (1) get a deeper understanding of the value of generative ai for purpose-driven decision making (2) get an appreciation of where the tech is today and how it is evolving to effectively support that process and (3) learn a lot, laugh a a bunch, and really come together as a team. In the end we were 13 people from 4 continents and 6 countries, who for the most had never met nor worked together at the beginning of the challenge.
By now most people have experienced one-human-to-one-agent collaborations, thanks to the unprecedented success of ChatGPT. Today emerging technologies like superAGI and LangChain enable agent-to-agent collaboration. Our aim is to unleash the power of exponential workflows by enabling dynamic and real-time collaboration between multiple humans and multiple autonomous agents. We used as a background a concrete business application: a team of business and IT professionals are working together with autonomous agents to prepare a list of topics for consideration at the next board meeting of a mining operation. In our scenario, human operators start asking multiple agents for assistance in preparing this report. As content gets added, vetted, and integrated by the humans, the agents have more and more information at their disposal to enrich and contextualize their responses
