Martin did his Polytechnique 3rd year research internship at Cisco Paris Research and Innovation Lab in Paris, then went on to Stanford, to Facebook, to create a startup, which then was acquired and folded him back into Facebook.

Starting out, of course, with a trip down memory lane, before rocketing into modern AI for virtual assistants.
