2023 Year in Review

Episode 172

With 2023 coming to a close, we thought it would be nice to reflect on the year’s trends with John Ruffolo.

Doing the news breakdowns this year it’s been apparent that AI, ML, and ChatGPT have dominated. It’s been a little over a year since the chat interface was launched by OpenAI and we’ve seen a scramble in tech to catch up, a defeated coup at OpenAI itself, and many other developments in the space.

We’ve also seen world politics come into the tech world in ways we haven’t seen before, how will the conflicts around the world shape tech and investing moving forward? And with interest rates poised to fall, what will that mean for global finance in 2024?

In this episode, we discuss:

(01:00) AI Evolution and Historical Comparison

(03:16) Nvidia, Salesforce, Amazon, and Microsoft's strategies in AI infrastructure and applications

(05:31) 2023 VC and Crypto Challenges
