AI in Action E384: Deedy Das, Founding Engineer at Glean
Welcome to episode 384 of the AI in Action podcast, the show where we break down the hype and explore the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.
Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI in North America and Europe.
Today’s guest is Deedy Das, Founding Engineer at Glean in Palo Alto, CA. Founded in 2019, Glean are on a mission to bring people the knowledge they need to make a difference in the world. Glean was founded by a seasoned team of former Google search and Facebook engineers, who wondered why we don’t have an easier way of finding what we need at work. In our personal lives, we have tools to help us find pretty much whatever we need. They wondered why don’t we have that at work and that was the beginning of Glean.
As an engineering leader at Glean, Deedy’s team works on Search & Intelligence problems which need dedicated end-to-end engineering thinking – indexing, processing, retrieval, ranking, serving, product – and power structured search (people, teams, customers, knowledge), chat search and code search. Prior to Glean, Deedy has been a Tech Lead at Google Search working on query understanding and the sports product in New York, Tel Aviv and Bangalore. Previously, he was also an engineer at Facebook in New York.
