Alexandre Omeyer is the CEO of Stepsize, a company that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to help software developers work faster. Stepsize claims that developers say that their biggest hurdle when working is poorly written documentation; the speed at which software is developing in contemporary companies makes maintaining internal documentation a painstaking process. AI is used to piece together data to keep controlled documentation.
The company has big plans for its future. “Stepsize is working towards a future where software development is available as a service thanks to AI,” Alexandre said in an interview with Context Connecting. “Literal software as a service. Software development will look very different; code will be abstracted away and anyone should be able to collaborate with an intelligent agent to bring their idea to life. There’s obviously a very long way to go, but we’re convinced that we’re tackling the problem the right way and will get there eventually.”
After receiving a double bachelor’s degree from the Université Paris X Nanterre, Alexandre went on to gain a master’s in management and entrepreneurship from the University of Sussex. He then moved into business development roles at IOVOX and then DueDill. In the meantime, he worked with his flatmates and co-founders on other projects until they came up with the idea of Stepsize.
The company already has backing from the likes of Virgin Media and Techstars.Tags: AI, ML
