This week guest

Danny May is a global AI tech entrepreneur and industry speaker who founded Lingmo, a translation and transcription software startup. Without any IT or AI background, he taught himself what he needed to know to help the company grow with his partners. The idea for Lingmo came after an embarrassing encounter with a Chinese police officer while trying to communicate with a competitor’s translation app. Since then, Lingmo has partnered with global giants such as IBM and Zoom. 

You can connect with Danny May through LinkedIn.
