  1. 1. INCEPTION AWARDS SIX AI STARTUPS CHANGING THE WORLD
  2. 2. INCEPTION IS A VIRTUAL ACCELERATOR PROGRAM THAT DEVELOPS AI STARTUPS DURING CRITICAL STAGES OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, PROTOTYPING, AND DEPLOYMENT.
  3. 3. “TEN YEARS AGO, WE STARTED A JOURNEY OF CREATING A NEW COMPUTING PLATFORM SO THAT YOU GUYS COULD DISCOVER THINGS AND MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE WORLD THAT OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE.” -JENSEN HUANG, CEO AND FOUNDER, NVIDIA
  4. 4. THE PROGRAM CURRENTLY HAS 1,300+ MEMBERS REPRESENTING MULTIPLE INDUSTRIES.
  5. 5. THIS YEAR AT GTC 2017, THE INCEPTION AWARDS CELEBRATED THE TOP AI STARTUPS AFTER SEEING PITCHES BY 14 AI STARTUP FINALISTS LAST MONTH.
  6. 6. Shu Nyatta Investor, SoftBank Group Prashant Sharma Global CTO, Microsoft Accelerator Tammy Kiely Goldman Sachs, Global Head Semiconductor Investment Banking Gavin Baker Portfolio Manager, Fidelity Investments Thomas Laffont Senior MD, Coatue Management Jensen Huang CEO, NVIDIA WINNERS WERE SELECTED BY AN ALL-STAR PANEL INCLUDING EXECS FROM GOLDMAN SACHS, FIDELITY INVESTMENTS, SOFTBANK, MICROSOFT, AND COATUE MANAGEMENT.
  7. 7. JUDGES SELECTED WINNERS AND RUNNERS-UP IN THREE CATEGORIES – BEST SOCIAL INNOVATION, MOST DISRUPTIVE, AND HOTTEST EMERGING.

  9. 9. Genetesis is running clinical trials for CardioFlux, a non-invasive biomagnetic imaging system that measures the chest’s weak magnetic fields. Powered by GPUs, it generates a 3D map of the heart’s electrical performance in just 90 seconds, giving doctors a fast way to diagnose blocked arteries and pinpoint their location. SOCIAL INNOVATION WINNER LEARN MORE Genetesis “Winning this award is incredible. To have this platform for introducing this at a global level means everything.” -Peeyush Shrivastaa, CEO, Genetesis
  10. 10. San Francisco-based Bay Labs wants to combat heart disease by putting an inexpensive ultrasound scanner in the hands of every general practitioner. By training its GPU-accelerated deep learning software to recognize ultrasound images, it aims to make scans easier to interpret. The company said its solution can reach eight times more people than existing ultrasound devices and bring down the cost from $400 to $50 per scan. SOCIAL INNOVATION RUNNER-UP LEARN MORE Bay Labs
  11. 11. The Israeli company’s GPU-accelerated deep learning software detects malware in real time. Trained on hundreds of millions of files, the neural network learns to detect more threats and then uses its experience to predict new attacks. MOST DISRUPTIVE WINNER LEARN MORE Deep Instinct “Winning this prize is the ultimate recognition from the deep learning industry because deep learning and NVIDIA are synonymous.” -David Eli, CEO and Co-Founder, Deep Instinct
  12. 12. Construction is the world’s second-largest industry. It’s also among the most dangerous, comprising 20 percent of U.S. worker deaths. Safety experts inspect sites, but there aren’t enough to go around, according to Mike Perozek, vice president of sales and marketing at Smartvid.io. The Cambridge, Mass., company has created an AI inspector that detects danger in videos collected at construction sites. MOST DISRUPTIVE RUNNER-UP LEARN MORE Smartvid.io
  13. 13. Using deep learning and machine vision, the machine identifies leukemia, infections, inflammations and other conditions in minutes from just a drop of blood. Athelas founder Tanay Tandon said the $500 device would lower the costs of blood tests. The technology, which is undergoing FDA clearance, is already available to clinics and home users. HOTTEST EMERGING WINNER LEARN MORE Athelas “It’s great that a company like NVIDIA defined the industry and is continuing to define it will help startups.” -Tanay Tandon, Founder, Athelas
  14. 14. Focal Systems is bringing AI to the grocery store. With GPU servers on the aisles and a grocery cart rigged up a tablet computer and cameras, the Menlo Park, Calif., company’s deep learning algorithms help shoppers find products, spot sales and pay for groceries without stopping at the checkout counter. The same setup alerts retailers when products are out of stock. HOTTEST EMERGING RUNNER-UP LEARN MORE Focal Systems
