Equity and AI Delusions

Will Hayes CEO of Lucidworks is working to create a more engaging world in the digital space. As a black founder, Will Hayes believes Tech Companies don’t need to focus on being inclusive because of some social responsibility, they should do because it’s good economics. Will joined Lucidworks in 2013 as our Chief Product Officer and was appointed CEO in 2014. He has over 15 years of product, marketing, and business development experience. Prior to Lucidworks, he was head of technical business development for Splunk, where he was responsible for defining the company’s market category and key product feature sets. He created and led the company’s global partner program, building an ecosystem of consultants, developers, resellers, system integrators, service providers, and technology partners. Earlier in his career, Hayes served as a software engineer at Genentech, where he built solutions that supported the sales and drug development teams in their field activities. (55:19)
