[2:16] Do you as an individual have empathy? That's why it all starts with you.
[4:16] I really do try to have a habit of doing two things: I want to meet a green person, someone I don't know. And I want to make sure everyday I've given off good value to the world.
[7:34] First of all, empathic AI doesn't exist. It's a dream for now.
[11:37] The idea of empathy and AI is that there can be much better empathic AI, but before you go there, check in with yourself, with your team.
[13:59] If your voice is horrible, then I would not suggest you do the podcast. Having a good voice in people's ears, that's what counts.
[16:10] In the old days you could go to the share holders and say we've had a great year, we've had 16% growth, we've just 1000 heads, we've reduced our headcount. This is how farmers talk about their cows. In the old days, employees didn't really hear about that. Now everything's out.
[19:14] If you start thinking you need to get everything right in the beginning, you'll never get anywhere. Perfection is the biggest killer of action.
[21:35] I have the notion of giving away value everyday and the podcast is about meeting exceptional people and then recording that for the world to listen to.
[23:15] I don't want this to be a painful experience for me. I want to make sure they're happy to be doing it. And it's with empathy and not with a stalking-kind of feeling.
