26 October 2011 - 11:29StrongSteam alpha, HackerNewsLondon, Startup-Chile

I’m a little behind with the blogging so here’s the short version. StrongSteam has been under constant dev for 2 months, we’re close to putting up the first AI tools behind a few Python demos (hopefully it’ll be up next week). I’m talking on this at HackerNewsLondon tomorrow night.

We haven’t (quite) finished the demos so it’ll be a slideshow, I’m thinking of running a workshop in a month or so to show what’s possible, talk through the limitations and possibilities and help people got comfy with the API.

I’m also very pleased to say that we were accepted into the StartupChile programme alongside RadicalRobot (my better half). In StrongSteam Kyran and I will get 6 months in Santiago with a $40k budget (for no equity!) to build our API and this opens the door to further travel. We’re also very happy to welcome Balthazar Rouberol (linkedin) to our team, he’ll be joining us remotely as an intern for 6 months.

Our biggest priority now is to get the alpha out there. If you’re curious to see what we’re doing please follow us via @strongsteamapi and join the mailing list on the strongsteam homepage.

We also have two surveys – the first is so you can tell us about your general AI interest, the second focuses on some of the points raised in the first to tell us more about your needs. We’d really appreciate your input here if you have 10 minutes to spare.
