This Entrepreneur Wants Us to See and Record the World in a Whole New Way | Entrepreneur

I am Lawrence Greaves, co-founder and CEO at OPKIX.

New York entrepreneur Brian Whitman helped create such a system. He sold a music analytics startup called The Echo Nest to Spotify in 2014, bolstering the streaming music service’s ability to recommend new songs from a person’s past listening. Whitman says he saw clear evidence of algorithms’ value at Spotify. But he founded his current startup, Canopy, after becoming fearful of their downsides.
