[Earley AI Podcast] Episode 30: Alex Babin

The Holy Grail of AI

Guest: Alex Babin



About this Episode:

Today’s guest is Alex Babin, Co-Founder and CEO at ZERO Systems. Alex joins Seth Earley and Chris Featherstone and shares the two biggest misconceptions of AI. Alex also discusses the new and upcoming AI metric data tool. Alex explains what it does and what we can expect from it. Be sure to listen in on Alex giving his advice on how to keep track of your data using AI!


  • The biggest misconceptions about AI are:
    • AI can work out of the box. Chat GPT shows people what it can do but, it does not mean that AI can do everything.
    • You can throw data at AI and it will be able to do the things you need it to do perfectly. AI technology is changing, but it hasn’t met this level of expertise yet.
  • A best practice to avoid these misconceptions of AI is to start from the beginning. Figure out your company's ROI, and reconstruct all the steps required.
  • Alex mentions a new layer of Metric Data that has never existed before. This metric data is user-generated data or a feedback loop. When you interact with the tool, a new type of metadata is born with more data to the tool is reinforced to provide better results.
  • Alex explains how the two anthologies aren’t connected. He believes that it should be connected to help provide better results for the client. Alex believes that in the future, AI can be used as a teaching tool between the two anthologies. 
  • Alex is looking forward to the advancement of AI in the future. He is also nervous about AI and how it will be controlled. Since everyone doesn’t know where AI will go, it is less predictable and controllable.

Quote of the Show:

  • “Throwing Chat GPT on top of your problems will not solve it.” (04:51)

The Critical Element of Foundational Architecture

Recently I chaired the Artificial Intelligence Accelerator Institute Conference in San Jose – in the heart of Silicon Valley.  The event has brought together industry innovators from both large and small organizations, providing a wide range of perspectives. For example, the CEO of AI and ML testing startup of Kolena, Mohamed Elgendy and Srujana Kaddevarmuth, Senior Director, Data & ML Engineering, Customer Products, Walmart Global Tech discussed productization of AI solutions and ways to increase adoption. I especially liked the idea of a model catalogue from which data scientists can retrieve data sets and machine learning models that others have built rather than starting from scratch.
