AFP 163 – Mait Müntel: From discovering the Higgs-Boson to language learning
On this episode I chat to Lingvist founder Mait Müntel, who was part of the Higgs-Boson discovery team at CERN.
His big passion is furthering human learning using machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the power of spaced repetition.
I don't always feature companies on the podcast, because they often have a hard time fronting interesting characters to offer more than just a veiled advertisement for their product.
Mait Müntel, the CEO of Lingvist completely overdelivered!
Not only did he have a very interesting backstory (how does a CERN-researcher end up in languages??) he also provided predictions for the future of human learning, and how his company tackles theses challenges.
