According to Aryan Sharma, he only used cold outreach to establish contacts in the tech industry. He claimed that since he was fourteen years old, he had emailed well-known people asking for advice. Sharma expressed interest in working as Altman’s secretary when they first met in order to absorb knowledge from and spend time with him.
Sam Altman of OpenAI was persuaded to invest millions of dollars in a startup company by a group of Indian youths. One of the two young founders of Induced AI, Aryan Sharma, talked about how he got in touch with an investor like Altman and his early interest in AI and coding.
Sustained Outreach Promotes Effective Networking
Aryan Sharma disclosed in an Overpowered podcast that he began establishing connections in the IT industry only through cold outreach. He claimed that since he was fourteen years old, he had emailed well-known people asking for advice. According to Sharma, a few of them even requested that he cease emailing them.
He disclosed that the two of them had saved some cash and taken excursions to San Francisco. After that, they would stay with friends and attend parties where they would run into others who were similar to Altman. After a significant amount of time spent cultivating a network and reaching out to key figures in the AI ecosystem, Aryan disclosed that he had finally had the opportunity to meet Altman.
Expression of Interest Unlocks Opportunities
Upon meeting Altman, Sharma expressed his interest in working as his secretary in order to gain knowledge from both OpenAI and Altman. They made the decision to keep in contact after the encounter.
During their new AI platform, Induced AI’s fundraising round, Aryan Sharma and Ayush Pathak both contacted Altman.
Cloud-Based AI Workers via Induced AI
Induced AI works by having a browser do tasks essentially through an AI agent. The business says AI workers will do the work for you when using your browser. The company claims that because the AI is entirely cloud-based, it won’t interfere with other machine tasks.
Induced claims that it can use AI to give reasoning similar to that of a human. This will enable the browser to communicate with web services; authentication is the only human interaction needed.
“We allow anyone to create a virtual AI worker that can automate the execution of workflows with human-like logic on a browser in the cloud,” Aryan said in a tweet.
