Jens Tröger, the founder of Bookalope is an experienced software engineer and computer science researcher with over two decades of industry experience including Microsoft Xbox, Intel Labs and Oracle Research. He is also a book lover, typophile and book designer for print and e-publishing. Bookalope weds his two passions (computer science and book design) in a set of intelligent tools that automate analysis, clean up, and conversion to and from various formats.
In this episode, we talk about why he took a set of tools he'd built to make his own life easier, and turned them into a business. Also, about escaping life as a corporate drone, how to make AI useful in book production, and the fact that the customer is always right - even when they're definitely wrong.
