Jim Breyer shares his views on technology investing and important trends in an exclusive interview with CNBC PRO's Mike Santoli.
On how artificial intelligence is changing the industry: "It's a new paradigm in terms of the skill sets the very best students and post-docs have at the top universities. So there's this renewal that's very exciting," he said.
"And artificial intelligence in a more general way, which is more than just voice recognition and voice capability, requires bio-engineering, neuroscience capability and skill sets that just don't exist at the [big technology] companies."
Breyer is the founder and CEO of Breyer Capital, a global venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, California. He has been an investor in more than 40 consumer internet/technology companies that have completed successful public offerings or mergers, including Facebook, Etsy and Marvel Entertainment.
