Neural Network in the Tech Ecosystem
As mentioned before, AI technologies can be used in a myriad of ways. However, developing these use cases requires complex expertise. Still, there are already several startups that have built strong solutions based on neural networks.
Neural networks is a division of deep learning, which itself falls under the wider umbrella of artificial intelligence. As it’s a fairly niche area, it is difficult to find specific information about the fund that invested in it.
Out of the 160 companies, it estimates that they raised around $1,5Bn, with a very strong standard deviation as the top 5 of the Index have raised more than $1,1Bn which represents 73%.
Interesting to see that Europe and the USA are the most prolific in terms of number of companies, but the average funding in the USA is two times higher than in Europe.
