This week I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Steve Gu who worked on some of the most recognizable technologies at Apple and Google before launching his own company. Steve founded AiFi in 2016 with Ying Zheng with the goal of making AI as widely available and as useful to consumers as Wi-Fi. AiFi enables reliable, cost-effective, and entirely contactless autonomous shopping with AI-powered computer vision technology that provides an unrivaled experience for retailers and consumers. AiFi works with top retailers worldwide such as Aldi, Carrefour, Compass Group, Morrisons, Verizon, and Zabka.

I asked Steve about his background and how he plans to make retail autonomous for shoppers everywhere.

“I started programming back in the 1990s when I was 13 years old and fell in love with it. I discovered how much you could do with computers, and I wanted to see if I could make a dent in the universe.
