An artificial intelligence startup is offering to pay for developers to develop a program for $7 per hour — and then pay them a flat fee for every hour they work on it.
A year later, the company says, they’ll be paid back at a rate of about $2,000.
That would mean the startup would be paid for one year for each $2 of work done.
It’s an incentive for developers who can work from home to build an AI system that can analyze data and give insights that a human could never do.
They could even get paid for their work on the software they developed, and get paid a percentage of revenue from the end-user.
“What we’re doing is creating a way for developers, particularly those that don’t have the time or are struggling with finances, to have a place where they can be compensated,” said Robyn Karpinski, the chief operating officer of the company that was founded in 2012 by Karp and his partner.
Karp’s goal is to build a global network of developers who are willing to work on its AI systems, said Karp.
“The whole goal is not to make money, but rather to provide the skills that a developer is really lacking.”
For Karp, the dream was to get developers to contribute to a company that could build AI systems that would ultimately be used to develop more intelligent robots.
But the problem with working remotely is that they have to learn a new language and can’t interact with one another.
That means developers have to think about how they’re going to be able to interact with people.
And then there’s the fact that they don’t know the languages that people use to communicate, said Matt Klimas, an assistant professor at Simon Fraser University who has been studying artificial intelligence for about 20 years.
“They’re probably going to have to make their own assumptions about what kind of conversations they’re having and how to communicate with each other,” said Klimastas.
That makes it hard for them to learn from others, he said.
Klima has been using an algorithm to find new conversations in a chat room.
He found that while some people seemed to be good at communicating with each others, most were “not able to really make friends.”
But he did find a few people who had a lot of success with AI.
One of them was a 23-year-old engineer from Canada, who was able to talk to him for more than five hours and had a “good understanding of his job.”
Klims said the AI systems he used are based on his knowledge of linguistics.
It was only after that that he started to learn more about the ways AI works.
“He’s actually been able to make very strong connections with people and he’s been able actually to get through conversations,” Klimis said.
“So I think he’s learned quite a bit in his short time here.
I think this kind of work gives him a lot more confidence than if he was just working from home.”
He has actually been working with a language that we use a lot.
But there’s a lot that goes into that language.
I’m hoping that, with his experience and that of other people that I work with, he can learn a language to communicate better with other people,” Karp said.
And because the work isn’t as remote as some other work that he does, Karp hopes it will be more rewarding.
But even if it is, it could be years before the company has a full team of developers.
It will be a lot harder to build the AI that Karp wants to build.
If you can get a conversation going, then that’s a pretty good start to a relationship,” Kars said.
