High Agency: The Podcast for AI Builders

High Agency is the podcast for AI builders. If you’re trying to understand how to successfully build AI products with Large Language Models and Generative AI then this podcast is made for you. Each week we interview leaders at companies building on the frontier who have already succeeded with AI in production. We share their stories, lessons and playbooks so you can build more quickly and with confidence. AI is moving incredibly fast and no-one is truly an expert yet, High Agency is for people who are learning by doing and will share knowledge through the community. Where to fi...

AI's Memory Upgrade: Max Rumpf on how to build advanced RAG systems

AI's Memory Upgrade: Max Rumpf on how to build advanced RAG systems

I'm excited to share this conversation with Max Rumpf the founder of Sid.AI. I wanted to speak to Max because Retrieval Augmented generation has become core to building AI applications and he knows more about RAG than anyone I know.

We get deep into the challenges of building RAG systems and the episode is full of technical detail and practical insights. 

We cover:
00:00 - Introduction to Max Rumpf and SID.ai
03:39 - How SID.ai's RAG approach differs from basic tutorials
07:30 - Challenges of document processing and chunking strategies
12:13 - I...

Building AI Products at Scale: Lessons from Zapier's CEO

Building AI Products at Scale: Lessons from Zapier's CEO

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Wade Foster, the founder and CEO of Zapier. We discussed Zapier's journey with AI, from their early experiments to the company-wide AI hackathon they held in March. Wade shared insights on how they prioritize AI projects, the challenges they've faced, and the opportunities they see in the AI space. We also talked about the future of AI and how it might impact the way we work

Inventing the AI Engineer

Inventing the AI Engineer

In this episode, I chatted with Shawn Wang about his upcoming AI engineering conference and what an AI engineer really is. It's been a year since he penned the viral essay "Rise of the AI Engineer' and we discuss if this new role will be enduring, the make up of the optimal AI team and trends in machine learning.

Building an AI coding assistant with Beyang Liu CTO of Sourcegraph

Building an AI coding assistant with Beyang Liu CTO of Sourcegraph

Sourcegraph have built the most popular open source AI coding tool in both the dev community and the Fortune 500. I sat down with Beyang Liu their CTO and cofounder to find out how they did it.

We dive into the technical details of Cody's architecture, discussing how Sourcegraph handles the challenges of limited context windows in LLMs, why they don't use embeddings in their RAG system, and the importance of starting with the simplest approach before adding complexity.

We also touch on the future of software engineering, open-source vs closed LLM models and what areas...

Evaluating LLMs the Right Way: Lessons from Hex's Journey

Evaluating LLMs the Right Way: Lessons from Hex's Journey

I recently sat down with Bryan Bischof, AI lead at Hex, to dive deep into how they evaluate LLMs to ship reliable AI agents. Hex has deployed AI assistants that can automatically generate SQL queries, transform data, and create visualizations based on natural language questions. While many teams struggle to get value from LLMs in production, Hex has cracked the code.

In this episode, Bryan shares the hard-won lessons they've learned along the way. We discuss why most teams are approaching LLM evaluation wrong and how Hex's unique framework enabled them to ship with confidence.

Building reliable AI agents with Cai GoGwilt CTO of Ironclad

Building reliable AI agents with Cai GoGwilt CTO of Ironclad

50% of AI contracts at Ironclad’s largest customers are now automatically negotiated with the help of generative AI. Ironclad were one of the earliest adopters of LLMs, starting when the best model was still GPT-3.  There’s a lot of hype around AI agents without many successful examples but Ironclad had successfully deployed them in one of the most sensitive industries imaginable. 


In this episode Cai explains how they achieved this. Why they had to build their own visual programming language to make agents reliable and shares his advice for AI leaders starting to build...
