Our motorsports coverage is very exciting for fans because things happen at hundreds of miles an hour, so speed is everything. Our app alerts you with all the information like lead changes, crashes, and everything else you would want as it happens in real-time
MF: What interests you about the travel/transport space?
High performance, high tech aspects of F1, Indycar, and Nascar such as real-time telemetry.
MF: How do you see artificial intelligence developing into the future?
AI is no longer some nerdy sci-fi concept anymore like in Star Wars, we use it every day without even realizing it. AI isn’t restricted to self-driving cars and autonomous robots, it’s used in calculators, Google Translate, and even anti-lock brakes in your car. The future of AI will not be robots eating the world, but more so advancements in computer vision, language understanding, and fundamental research in fields such as genetics and nanotechnology where computer based AI supplements our creativity.
