Big news from our favorite futurist will.i.am.  The serial entrepreneur took the tech world by storm late last year with the announcement that his start-up i.am+ had raised over $117 million dollars in fresh venture funding. The company, founded in 2012, initially focused on consumer electronics devices such as headphones but is now making a splashy entrance into the corporate computing market.

Their latest offering, Omega for Enterprise, is a voice assistant for customer service currently serving companies within the technology, healthcare, insurance and financial services industries.  

My data isn’t really working for me. The day my data works for me is the day that I have my own personal A.I.

We sat down with the man himself to hear his views on building a personalized and adaptable Artificial Intelligence software and why it is the next frontier in conversational computing.
