x.ai Wins a MongoDB Innovation Award!

Awesomesauce! We’re so very honored to take home a MongoDB Innovation Award for Artificial Intelligence.
We were on hand at today’s MongoDB World 2015 conference to not only pick up the award, but to also present—Varun Vijayaraghavan, an x.ai Backend Engineer, gave a stellar overview of how we’re building our dear Amy (video to come).
Here’s a few pics of our COO Alex Poon accepting the award as well as Varun killin’ it on stage earlier today.
