MAJOR DAUGHTER IN CONVERSATION WITH SILICON VALLEY EXPAT THAT USES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO MEASURE THE QUALITY OF ONLINE ARTICLES ALEX FINK
Alex Fink was born in the Soviet Union and raised in Israel. After traveling through 40 countries and living in Japan for a year, he settled in Silicon Valley and began a 15-year career as a tech executive in a variety of startups.
Alex decided that instead of contributing to the problem created by Silicon Valley over the years, he would rather build the solution using their own methods. He moved to Austin, rolled up his sleeves, and a few years later the Otherweb was born.
Otherweb’s mission is to improve the quality of information at every stage of its lifecycle - creation, distribution, consumption and monetization. It views the quality of information that people consume as the most important input to people’s ability to make good decisions and act rationally.
In the near future, Otherweb plans to launch a new information-centered platform, which will allow people to consume high-quality information without junk, clickbait, eye-catchers, link farms, partisan eco-chambers and other forms of digital noise.
