#5 – Yann LeCun: AI Dynamics and Regulation Scaling Theory

    • Sciences

My guest is Yann LeCun, a pioneering French-American computer scientist, known for his groundbreaking work in machine learning, computer vision, and neural networks. Yann is the Silver Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University and serves as the Vice President and Chief AI Scientist at Meta.

Yann is one of the world’s most influential computer scientists. He has accumulated over 350,000 citations on Google Scholar, he is one of the founding figures in the field of deep learning thanks to its contribution to convolutional neural networks and backpropagation algorithms, and he is a vocal proponent of open source. In recognition of his significant contributions to artificial intelligence, he was awarded the Turing Award in 2018, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of Computing.”

Our conversation is structured into three distinct parts. We begin by discussing the overarching dynamics in the AI space, then narrow our focus to the firm level, and finally, we conclude with an exploration of the challenges that lie ahead. By the end of this discussion, you will learn whether open source has a chance to make it in AI, the key factors for scaling an AI foundation model, the role ecosystems play in market dynamics, Meta long term strategy in the space, how concentration among chip manufacturers impacts AI companies, the current effect of the European AI Act on AI companies, what Yann would like to see regulators doing, and more. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
