16 INVESTMENTS IN AI/ML COMPANIES.
ONE OF THE LARGEST AI PORTFOLIOS OF ANY EARLY-STAGE INVESTOR ACROSS EUROPE
INVESTING IN AI
Geographies of Interest
Annual Global Financing History
Compared to Fintech & Proptech
Is Winter Coming?
> first winter in 1970-1980 due to component hype (eg. the
Speech Understanding Research debacle 1974 grant
cancellation)
> second winter in mid-1980's due to more component hype
(the fall of expensive 'expert systems')
WHAT IS AN INVESTMENT WINTER &
HOW DOES IT FORM?
WHEN INVESTMENT DRIES UP DUE TO EXCESSIVE INVESTMENT + RISING VALUATIONS + EXCESS
VAPORWARE
WHAT DOES GOING THROUGH AN
INVESTMENT WINTER FEEL LIKE?
VCS DEFENDING INVESTMENTS VS INVESTING IN NEW COMPANIES + DOWNROUNDS/FLATROUNDS +
LONGER TIMEFRAME TO FUNDRAISE
HOW IS AI DIFFERENT?
> Like mobile in 2007+ Sector is going from macro
category to empowering sub-industries
> Major platforms (to build on) are emerging
> Much more computational power available (for cheap)
> Much more structured data available
Google, Intel, Apple, Twitter,
Salesforce
SUB-INDUSTRIES OF INVESTMENT
Industries where the mundane can be automated or where
there is little or no margin for error
Industries where good-enough AI-based 'labor' can go
mainstream due to economic factors
The Economist on The End of the Bracero and the Rise of
the Machine
SO WHAT ARE WE LOOKING TO INVEST IN?
Industries where AI can unlock huge value due to
lowering costs of operation or increasing value
Component technologies: Computer Vision, NLP,
Open+Closed data sets
Some of our companies
> Gyant/Viz.ai - Healthcare
> OpenSensors/Repositive - Data
> Reinfer.io - nlp & customer service
> Beagle/Legit Patents - Legal automation
> Fraugster/ThirdEye - Transaction security
> The Rocket Company - Complex & Expensive designs
