Victor Shih

CTO, Co-founder


I have lived coast to coast, starting in the San Francisco Bay Area and ending up in the bustling New York City. Though I’ve adopted the busy lifestyle of the city that never sleeps, I still retain the laid back attitude of the Golden State. There is nothing that stirs my passion as much as working to advance the field of AI. That is until you bring up my dog.
