Christian Kaas

Former Head of Product, Generative AI - Meta

Christian co-founded, and currently leads, the generative AI for ads group at Meta. His small but mighty team of engineers and research scientists works at the cutting-edge of generative AI (across text, image, video, audio, and multimodal) to invent the future of digital advertising. Coming to AI from operations research, Christian spent almost a decade in early-stage AI and deep tech startups, helping to develop and commercialize technologies ranging from bioengineered sensors and drone interdictors, to AI supercomputers. He formerly led product partnerships for The Foundry, Berkeley Engineering's incubator for deep technology startups. Christian doesn’t host an award-winning AI podcast, doesn’t run marathons in his spare time - and nobody asked him to be on the Forbes 30 Under 30. He lives in Cambridge.
