Key insights come from many different places, and increasingly, the level of data fluency required to interpret enterprise data shuts most people out of the conversation. We believe the next generation of products must enable more viewpoints rather than less, because a wide range of knowledge, experience, and ideas leads to better outcomes. Together we can remove this barrier to entry by distilling complex topics, like AI and machine learning, into easy-to-use tools that bring people back to the table.
WHO WE ARE
Table.ai is a diverse team creating products that push the boundaries of applied AI at a pivotal time in its history. We are operators, ML researchers, traders, distributed systems engineers, designers, and experimenters with decades of experience leveraging technology in complex environments. We see the growing enthusiasm and fluency around data science converging with technical innovation to create the demand for accessible augmented intelligence: table.ai
SIMPLE IS BEAUTIFUL
Entropy constantly pushes us towards a state of disorder and complexity. It takes an incredible amount of effort to distill complexity into simple, intuitive designs and products. In simplicity lies beauty. Our team embraces the challenge of seeking beautiful experiences through a pursuit of simplicity.
Life with play is a whole lot more interesting than without it, and it’s often how people learn. Whether it is reinforcing that mentality as we build together, or our love of novel interactions and delightful visualizations to truly give meaning to the phrase “playing with data”, we seek to play each and every day and to enable our customers to lose themselves in play as well.
SHIP, SHIP, SHIP
There is no substitute for the learning that comes through real world interactions. In our experience the answers tend not to lie in a conference room, or in a slide deck, but with our customers. At table, we encourage each other to deploy early and often in order to learn from our customers.
WE PUSH OURSELVES TO FAIL
It’s simple, if we don’t experience failure, then we simply aren’t taking enough risks or moving fast enough. We have to be okay with failing every now and then. It’s a good thing. It means we are challenging ourselves, it means we are growing.
Details matter – but sometimes we can be so married to a task that we can’t see the forest for the trees. We can’t lose sight of the bigger picture of the outcomes we want to give life to. Owning an outcome means being prepared to pivot, to think creatively, to throw away well laid plans and build them anew, to come to each challenge prepared to not only identify blockers and problems but also solutions. It means relentless focus and constantly pushing to get to a result.
BUILD AND NURTURE TRUST
Trust is hard to build and easy to lose, and it is ultimately one of your most valuable assets. We prioritize building and maintaining strong trust in all of our relationships and value the honest conversations that can be had as a result of that trust.
