Yoshi Yokokawa talks Alpaca and funky looking espresso machines

We are all setup and ready to film at the recent Fintech Exchange event in Chicago. One of the Barchart team members assigned to keep the filming on schedule and those on the list coming on time introduced me to a very hip Yoshi Yokokawa from Alpaca.ai.

Wearing your typical tech startup gear of t-shirt (with their logo obviously), jeans, sneakers and a smile from ear to ear; I hear “Oh, and BTW these guys are in the AI scene…” as Yoshi and I shake hands.

Having spent the previous day researching and preparing for interviews, I knew who Yoshi was and what his recent startup Alpaca.ai were up to.

One may expect to see the Japanese involved in AI, as one of the world leaders in Robotics; in lab clothing working for billion dollar companies with facilities rivalling that of Google.

However, jeans and t-shirt wearing, young, all decked out with your typical Silicon Valley swag after a healthy round of funding; Yoshi is the future of AI and guess what? He is into trading… Big time.

With a young tech focused talent pool based out of Kobe, Japan and Silicon Valley, they are “democratising AI technology” or as we prefer: blending the world of AI and trading like vodka and orange.
