Leigh Marie Braswell (@LM_Braswell) of Founders Fund and Erik Bernhardsson (@bernhardsson), who built the music recommendation system at Spotify, join Erik to discuss:- How data flows through a company and the business decisions that can be made based on data.- The waves of change in the data tooling landscape over the last decade and why we’re only a quarter of the way to easy-to-use tools.- Why there are so many data roles and how the commercialization of open source projects drives fragmentation and specialization in the industry.- The exciting opportunities and potential pain points to build around in data tooling, including workflow scheduling, LTV predictions, and collaboration.- Why people building in the space shouldn’t index to existing roles, structures, and platforms, since those platforms may not be around in a few years.- Why AI and ML are just one tool in the data toolbox and the fact that there is more room to build around other, boring data science tasks.Thanks for listening — if you like what you hear, please review us on your favorite podcast platform. Check us out on the web at or get in touch with us on Twitter @villageglobal.Want to get updates from us?
