The AI Rush – Serena Capital

Great report on the state of #AI startups in Europe. #MachineLearning #InsurTech

  • Because we know how to have fun ✌️, we were (litteraly) excited about spending days and nights on crunching data of European startups funded in 2016 to eventually get a real sense of what is AI and Data’s real trend in Europe.
  • 2800+ Startups later, we eventually found out 271 AI Data startups and here is our main conclusion: Yes, AI is a thing and it’s happening now.Not convincing enough?
  • Fundraising went crazy, and we always want more of itNumbers stagger : $774 million — Yes 7–7 and 4, nearly 10% of the total 10+ billion invested in European startups in 2016, has been fully dedicated to AI data.
  • Bringing the total investment in AI Data to 2 billion since 2014.2.
  • This trend has been led by early stage investments which played a signifiant role: $215 million have been invested in 171 early stage startups (0 to $5m in funding).

How Watson Helped Me in My Battle Against Lung Cancer

How @IBMWatson helped me in my battle against lung #cancer:  #AI

  • My doctors at Jupiter Medical Center said it looked like an early-stage lung cancer, and I had a successful operation.
  • In my case, Watson identified an immunotherapy treatment option that is specifically designed for the small set of patients whose cancer has the same features as mine.
  • This treatment option was the same one that my doctors had identified.
  • Watson for Oncology, which my doctors at Jupiter Medical Center started using earlier this year, was able to read and understand my medical history.
  • It came up with a list of treatment options for my doctors and me to consider, based on my individual case and training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

I’ve worn a few different hats in my life. I don’t mind being on the road, and prefer being outdoors when I can – whether it’s working in my yard,…

When robots will start taking over human tasks

When robots will start outperforming humans @sai #AI

  • According to a new study from Oxford and Yale University researchers, those are the years artificial intelligence is slated to take over each of those tasks.
  • And so it will go for millions of other jobs over the next 50 years, researchers find.
  • The study relied on survey responses of 352 AI researchers who gave their opinions on when in the future machines would replace humans for various tasks.
  • Lead investigator Katja Grace and her colleagues found the tasks most likely to get automated within the next 10 years were rote, mechanical tasks.
  • Ultimately, the researchers found AI could automate all human tasks by the year 2051 and all human jobs by 2136.

A survey of AI researchers tallied predictions for when machines will start beating humans at everything from LEGO assembly to essay-writing.
