Despite his young age, Kyle Wiggers is already one of the most prominent figures in the technology industry. He is a writer for VentureBeat, and has a special interest in artificial intelligence.
Career at TechCrunch
Founded in 2005, TechCrunch is a media company that covers the internet. It is known for its reviews of internet products, breaking tech news, and opinions on tech companies. It also hosts numerous meet-ups and conferences throughout the world. Its community includes over 2 million social media followers. TechCrunch also has a lot of volunteers.
As a member of the tech community, TechCrunch has the advantage of being a partner, as well. For instance, the tech site partnered with Greylock for the third year in a row, bringing on a number of notable figures in the tech community. It also has a burgeoning community of volunteer journalists and social media gurus.
One of the most enlightening parts of my time at TechCrunch was the opportunity to write about companies in a variety of industries, from tech to fintech, healthcare to real estate. TechCrunch has also partnered with various nonprofits, including the Human Rights Campaign, TechCrunch alumna Jessica Mah, and women and girls in tech organization, Women in Tech (WIT). These collaborations have provided the media site with a wealth of information about the tech industry.
Special interest in artificial intelligence
Earlier this year, Wiggers Venturebeat hosted a panel on AI ethics at the AI conference in San Francisco. Panelists discussed how to protect people’s privacy and the implications of the computing revolution on society.
Several leading companies have invested heavily in AI technology. There are dozens of AI products and services available, ranging from simple tools for computer users to complex business applications for programmers. Some products are aimed at the general public, such as apps that help people avoid people they don’t like.
A number of leading companies are also experimenting with AI tiers. Some are building tools that help search large data sets for secrets. Others are developing machine learning algorithms for specific tasks, such as self-driving cars.
These products are often “black box” technologies. Generally, the intellectual property of a third party is the basis for the technology. These are used in a variety of areas, including cybersecurity and medical applications.
Some developers believe that their tools are starting to exhibit independence. Some of them are used in research organizations, such as Google’s DeepDetect tool for deep learning. Others are used in industrial laboratories.
Writing for VentureBeat
Founded in 2006, VentureBeat publishes articles about technology, science, and pop culture. It’s considered one of the top general interest blogs in the world. It also has readers interested in news, development, marketing, and other tech-related topics.
VentureBeat has a wide readership, with 7.5 million unique readers monthly. It also has a large number of channels, including Enterprise, Cloud, Big Data, Commerce, Development, and Social. Its coverage also crosses over, as many of its readers also read other channels.
VentureBeat claims to have an equal opportunity employment policy. It also states that it will accept previously published content on rare occasions. But that doesn’t mean it won’t accept pitches from outside contributors. Depending on the nature of the content, an article might be accepted and cross-posted on other channels.
VentureBeat doesn’t allow pitches directly to editors. Instead, you must send [email protected] or [email protected] to reporters. It’s also worth reading through the channels you’re interested in to determine whether the content you’re proposing will fit there.
He has also worked as a reporter at the MIT Technology Review. He has also written for several gadget blogs, including Digital Trends and VentureBeat. He lives in Brooklyn with his partner. In his spare time, Wiggers dabbles in piano.
