Mayfield Fund Bets On The Cognitive Economy

Software developers have long touted the ability to automate dull, repetitive work. Now, they’re increasingly coming for more complex tasks. Mayfield Fund is among the firms vested in this trend, investing in the rise of the cognitive workforce through AI-enabled tools for knowledge workers. Cognition as a Service (CaaS) is “going to transform productivity. It’s going to allow humans to do new things,” said Navin Chaddha, a managing partner at Mayfield. To that end, Chaddha led the firm’s investment this spring in NeuBird, a service for IT operations that adds an AI-enabled “teammate” called Hawkeye. Hawkeye analyzes issues with the software stack based on prompts from engineers, chats with the team, and provides solutions.

TechWolf raises $43M to take an AI-sized bite out of the internal recruiting game

Layoffs continue to buffet the world of technology, but with the need for tech talent in organizations only growing, there’s a bigger focus on how internal talent is managed. A startup from Ghent in Belgium called TechWolf is taking a unique approach to addressing that need. It has built an AI engine that ingests data from internal workflows to learn about the people doing that work. This is then turned into data for managers and internal recruiters to assess various employees’ interests and skills more accurately, help connect them with different projects, and ultimately provide them with better training and more. The company is making some waves with its technology, boasting an impressive list of customers that include GSK, HSBC, Booking.com and many others. And now it has raised nearly $43 million ($42.75 million, more precisely) in funding to expand its business.

Microsoft AI CEO explains why the economics of information are about to 'radically change'

AI will cut the marginal costs of producing information, Microsoft AI CEO Mustafa Suleyman says. Suleyman predicts near-zero marginal cost for new knowledge production in 15-20 years. Suleyman believes these changes will mark a "true inflection point" in human history. If the internet dramatically cut the costs of producing information, AI is bound to eliminate them.
