After creating a technology and company that disrupted the landscape of Conversational AI and our expectations of what AI can be in practice, I wrote this book to chronicle the journey and the counterintuitive DNA of Clinc that underlies its success.
This book is for the dreamers who want to have impact on the world with technology and provides the insights that got me there and how they were put into practice. I’m humbled to have had the opportunity to work with phenomenal people, and lead a company that in ~4 years grew from 0 to 130 people, realized a $200m dollar valuation, averaged of 3.2x year over year revenue growth (GAAP ARR), and was experienced by 10s of millions of users. Clinc realized this success working on a hard “holy grail” problem of our generation, one that Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon were spending billions to establish dominance.
I also wanted to write this book to inspire folks who are from an unconventional background to build something that can change the world, and illuminate my perspective on how to engage and grapple with giants to realize success with disruptive ideas. This book tells the story of how a black kid from the Caribbean who attended Detroit area schools navigated and ascended the echelons of computer science to make an impact, and it’s my hope that this story encourages others to believe in themselves and create a positive effect in the world.

Learn the origin story, key ideas, and core philosophies driving the future of AI, while discovering the unique role each one of us can play in the impending AI revolution.
Human eras become defined by their technology. Our history is dotted with time periods such as the Mesolithic Era, the Bronze Age, the Industrial Revolution. Historically, we conquer one technology gradually and then take measured steps to the next. That model was thrown out the window with the Technological Age. In our current era of rapid, exponential growth, artificial intelligence is the next evolution not just of technology but perhaps of existence itself. In Breaking Bots: Inventing a New Voice in the AI Revolution, Jason Mars expresses the surprising progress in AI and what the future holds.
