Glue People

Some of the most interesting areas of science are in the gaps between, the confluences between subjects,” Hassabis says. What I’ve tried to do in building DeepMind is to find glue people’, those who are world class in multiple domains, who possess the creativity to find analogies and points of contact between different subjects. Generally speaking, when that happens, the magic happens.” […] Every six months, senior managers examine priorities, reorganise some projects, and encourage teams — especially engineers — to move between endeavours. Mixing of disciplines is routine and intentional.

This comes from a Wired interview with DeepMind’s Demis Hassabis.
