About Somdip Dey

This week’s podcast guest is Somdip Dey. He’s an embedded artificial intelligence scientist and engineer, turned entrepreneur, fighting a war against food waste. He’s the CEO of Nosh Technologies which provides mobile solutions to optimize consumers’ food consumption, and reduces food waste in their households.  He’s also a TEDx speaker.

On This Week’s Podcast

We talk about food waste and some of the technologies helping to combat it. Somdip’s parents we in a horrible car accident, and he was sending them all his money to help with their medical bills. With no money left to buy groceries, he resorted to dumpster diving to survive. This was the seed that started his crusade. You don’t need to be a scientist to follow our conversation. Somdip does get a little bit nerdy about tech, but he breaks it down so it’s easy to understand. So, will AI take over and kill us like in The Terminator? Probably not. But it has helped him create some unique art, like the photo of him I’m using to promote this episode. He’s also begun creating music aided by AI.
