With guest speaker William Tunstall-Pedoe, Artificial Intelligence Entrepreneur

William founded Evi (formerly True Knowledge), a Cambridge-based artificial intelligence business. The vision for the business was a world where people can interact with computers just by asking naturally – the computer would understand and give back exactly what they wanted. Founded in 2006 with the core technology and a patent application, the vision has stayed the same, though the business went through multiple pivots to find success, culminating with a voice assistant that became #1 in the Apple app store and then to the creation of Amazon Alexa following acquisition by Amazon in 2012. How brilliant does a product need to be to succeed in a crowded market? How do you remain focussed on your vision through multiple pivots? William will take you through the decade-long story of his business and what he learned along the way.

Enterprise Tuesday is a series of free evening lectures and networking sessions open to all. It is managed and delivered by the Cambridge Judge Entrepreneurship Centre. The weekly format consists of a lecture following by an hour of networking. Find out more about future guest speakers and topics.
