Deepak is a champion marshmallow stacker, experienced product leader terrified of presenting to 10-year olds. Deepak was passionate about trains growing up in India, and is excited to be working in a startup within a big company, revolutioning transport technology by using AI for good.

About the Episode

Deepak grew up in India with a deep love for trains, and is now working for Hitachi Europe on AI-powered travel solutions. I was initially thinking of Thomas the Tank Engine-style sentient trains (that still somehow needed human drivers) but they seem to be concentrating on more day-to-day uses cases at the moment. A man can dream though!

I was also interested in what it is like working for a very large corporation with a long history, as this doesn't seem to be the sort of thing that lends itself to fast iteration and agile methods, although apparently they've got that licked.

Deepak also speaks of his renowned ability to stack marshmallows, and why presenting to kids is far more terrifying that presenting to the C-suite.
