  1. Sam Altman in conversation with StrictlyVC

    Sam Altman was a force to be reckoned with as the president of Y Combinator. Little has changed in his transition to CEO of OpenAI, a "capped-profit" company whose mission it is to "enact a path to safe artificial general intelligence." We talked at length about his work, OpenAI's mission, and some of the criticisms that the young outfit is facing. We had fun, talking with him for this extended sit-down; hope you'll enjoy it, too.

    A conversation about what makes for sustainable funding, and the risks and rewards of chasing the big prize.

    Chris Sacca, founder and chairman, Lowercase Capital

  3. Can Big Data Save the World?

    The world is different in 2022. As we begin to emerge from a global pandemic we’re faced with a barrage of new crises that are shaking nations to their core: war, food shortages, broken supply chains, bioterrorism, energy shortages, and inflation. Will data-driven intelligence, now a critical component for countries, business managers, and economic enterprises large and small, offer solutions to these kinds of crises? Can software realistically contribute solutions to the many difficult realities that feel so intractable? Alex Karp, leader of one of the world's most important data analytics firms, Palantir, joins us to discuss his perspectives.

    This conversation was part of the 2022 Aspen Ideas Festival.

  6. Crimson Connections: William A. Ackman ’88 and Paul C. Hilal ’88

    Two decades before their careers converged as activist hedge fund managers, William A. Ackman ’88 and Paul C. Hilal ’88 were arguing about everything, including the physics of weightlifting in a Harvard gym. Bill recalls that he was always right. He would not have submitted a timely Social Studies thesis, however, without a kick from Paul.

    The Lowell House roommates — who came to invest billions together at Pershing Square Capital Management — first met in their house dining hall after an introduction by a mutual friend. They reflect on finding fulfillment in finance and in the company of one another.

    Filmed October 15, 2020. Hosted by Andrew W. Liang and Samuel W. Zwickel. Edited by Ryan N. Gajarawala.
