One of the guys who founded DeepMind, Demis Hassabis was on Desert Island Discs the other week. It was quite astounding. He chose a Prodigy track to remind himself of how Cambridge had been a "holiday camp" to him - he'd been home schooled to allow him to train as a chess master, but at the age of twelve he had an epiphany that professional chess was a waste of human brain power. He then left home to become the chief coder on Bullfrog's Theme Park game. Therefore, Cambridge was the first time in his life he hadn't been working or training full time, so he partied. He still got a double first, though!
He comes across as a really warm, articulate guy.
