Techonomy hosted Ben Medlock, CTO and co-founder of Britain’s SwiftKey, in our Manhattan offices for a short video interview. It was the first episode of a new online series we call “Three Questions from Techonomy.” Medlock talked about his company, the growing importance of AI, and how tech is changing the world. This modest CTO has a company with outscale success—now on about 150 million smartphones globally, including most Samsung phones. His software autocompletes typing on the Android keyboard, and is the state of the art in keyboard technology. The company recently completed a $20 million funding round with venture capital firms Accel and Index Ventures.
