Hello. Thanks everybody for coming out tonight. It's a pack house so I think we had something like 1000 people who wanted to attend and so I think people are both very excited to see Clem and then I think there's ever growing enthusiasm for AI. So thanks so much for making it. And I'd also like to quickly thank Edwin Lee, ali Pavillon, emily The Stripe AV event Security food and Catering team. Thank you so much for putting on this event tonight and hosting everybody. We're going to be talking about Clem's background and origins and so I'll keep the intro really brief, which is Clem is the CEO and co founder of Hugging Face, which is really one of the main pieces of infrastructure that everybody uses in the AI industry. He's been working on AI for about 15 years now, originally from France, has been in the US for about ten years. And so welcome and thank you so much for joining us today.
Okay, and so could you just tell us a little about the origins of Hugging Face and how you started working on it, what it was originally, how it morphed into what it is today, and how you got started.
