The Podcast: Bringing Light to Dark Data With Dan Mallin of Lucy AI

How much dark data does your company have lurking in the depths of its servers? No, we’re not talking about anything shady (…are we?). We’re talking about the tons of slideshows, presentations, PDFs, reports, graphs, research, and on and on that goes completely unused but shouldn’t go completely unused. Dan Mallin and Lucy are here to try to fix that issue.

As the founder and CEO of Lucy, Dan is guiding the artificial intelligence company into the future. Lucy, the company’s titular AI, scrapes through huge amounts of data and accurately tags each and every bit in the hopes that it can be quickly recalled via natural language search to help companies be better at what they do.

We talked with Dan about Lucy’s data-diving prowess, his impressive career in tech, why farmers are definitely, definitely entrepreneurs, and a lot more. Don’t miss it.
