On this week’s show, we spoke with Alexandre de Brébisson, Founder @ Lyrebird.ai and PhD student at MILA. Alexandre is one of the founders of lyrebird.ai, a startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz, RedPoint Ventures and YCombinator (S17). He is also a fourth-year PhD student at the MILA lab in Montréal under the joint supervision of Professors Pascal Vincent and Yoshua Bengio (my interest in neural nets started back in 2008 when he coded LeNet-5 in Maple (!)). Before his PhD, he studied at Imperial College under the supervisions of Professors Murray Shanahan, Giovanni Montana and Mauricio Barahona.

 

On the show, we spoke about:

  • How he started building websites at a young age
  • His interest in speech synthesis and the ethical impact
  • Optimization speeds with natural language processing
  • Going viral around the world

 

Alexandre is a brilliant and super humble entrepreneur. The technology he is developing is literally stuff from science fiction. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
