Assaf Glazer is the founder and CEO of Nanit, a baby monitor and human analytics company that helps parents navigate their child’s sleep. In this episode we get into Assaf's experience working in the Israeli defense and on chip manufacturing, and how he parlayed his computer vision background into building a New York startup. He discusses what he has learned about human centric design, and the pros and cons of manufacturing a consumer electronics product in China versus the United States. He also gets into why his product may help with retention in the workforce, the issues he sees in deep learning research, why behavioral neuroscience is critical in the next leap forward for machine learning, and how process control for chips is different than process control for babies.
