X.ai has raised $44 million to tackle a really big small problem: scheduling emails. You might have encountered one of their AI-powered assistants without even knowing it. When emailing to set up a meeting, a user simply copies email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to take over the logistics. These bots process natural language in order to set up a meeting the way a human assistant would — but for much less money. On this episode, Dennis Mortensen, the CEO and Co-Founder of x.ai, talks about what a future powered by artificially intelligent assistants could look like.
