2017 was definitely the year of AI. PwC and Accenture predict that the economic impact of AI on our society will approach $15 Trillion by 2030 and that no sector will remain untouched. Last week, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, said that Artificial Intelligence is “one of the most important things that humanity is working on. It’s more profound than, I don’t know, electricity or fire”.
We share these views and began focusing our investment strategy on Applied Artificial Intelligence technologies in late 2015. Since then, BootstrapLabs has become one of the most active and respected early-stage venture capital firms in the space and our community of executives, founders, researchers, and investors has grown to over 40,000 globally.
To inspire you, we thought we would share our 2nd Annual Applied AI Digest Review Presentation – a recap of all the major AI news and trends of 2017.
