The most interesting deals we look at here at Yes VC almost always have an AI component. AI is a huge part of the conversation at Yes VC, and we have done some deep thinking about what it can and can’t do–and what it should and shouldn’t do. Human-impersonating AI is a particular area of great potential but it comes with many possible outcomes, good and bad, that should be thought through. Some of these have been discussed in the most recent episode of Should This Exist? which involves a discussion of an app-based human-impersonating therapy AI intended to alleviate depression.
The first question was ask a founder is why they’re building the companies they’re building.

AI, with its tremendous transformative power, is a particular area where the founder’s character and motivation is of utmost importance. Listen to Should This Exist? and join us in thinking through AI and its implications.
