An Open Call to Join This Year’s Ai/Ml/Data Science Cohort

Data Science + Artificial Intelligence

We are currently looking to invest in companies that are using data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence or similar technologies to build solutions. Click here to read more about the kind of AI/ML/DS startups we are looking for.

We invest in frontier technologies that exist at the intersection of $100 billion business markets and 1 billion person needs. Examples of these include, but are not limited to:

Blockchain: Using distributed ledger technologies to reduce the cost and to increase the speed, transparency, identity and accountability of financial transactions.

Drones: Developing software modules that can improve drone operations, data processing and sharing or supply chain management systems for testing drones in areas with low connectivity.

Virtual and Augmented Reality: Providing new, immersive ways that can enhance our learning experience, expand our understanding of complex systems and improve how we interact with one another.

Data Science: Compiling and analyzing large data collections where they are scarce, allowing the visualization of large amounts of data in intuitive ways, or creating new machine learning models and frameworks for using data more effectively.

Artificial Intelligence: Using AI tools (such as optimization or pattern recognition) or the newest Deep Learning or Transfer Learning techniques to address social or environmental problems
