|We’re raising for a new AI venture. The tech behind it is very different in approach and implications. We’ve found it takes at least half an hour even with the most receptive of people to get the scientific point across, leaving little time for the consequences to sink in or to talk about the company and where things are headed. Dropping the science part makes the discussion ungrounded and detached and the claims unbelievable, and we don’t have enough graphs that go up and to the right to make that okay.|
We do have a human-readable summary. It takes less than 30 minutes to go through and will elevate the meetings for all involved. But apparently the deck-then-meet pipeline is so entrenched even a small change to the dance routine smells as a bad signal. The text is our most effective way to get the point fully across. What to do?
