Episode #17 – Hacking Public Infrastructure with Alexandre Vallette

In episode 17 of the OKCast, I talk with Alexandre Vallette of ANTS. ANTS is an open knowledge company focused on building applications using machine learning, good user interface design, and what they call “collective intelligence”. Alexander comes to this work from a PhD in Chaos Theory, and is a co-founder of the app SNIPS, and the machine learning mind behind ANTS. With ANTS, he’s developed several amazing applications, including one that helps make waste disposal a friendlier and more efficient process for everyday people. You can find Alexander on Twitter @vallettea or on his website, www.ants.builders.

My particular focus is on the political economy and ecology of data, including data collection, data use, data access/sharing, data economics, and the ideologies surrounding it.
