1Q 2018PitchBook Analyst Note: AI's Health Exam
PitchBook Analyst Note: AI's Health Exam
Key Takeaways • Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) is beginning to resonate with venture investors particularly in the healthcare sector, which recorded 48 deals in 2017 raising $718 million, representing 65% and 126% growth YoY, respectively. • Within healthcare, we expect AI to be used mainly to augment workers’ skills, as opposed to displacing them. Personal AI assistants for physicians/nurses can recall relevant medical research, compile population patient data, provide initial possible diagnoses, and optimize workflow. Time saved by these innovations represent countless hours that can be used more efficiently by industry professionals. • Deep learning algorithms that leverage image recognition are already more accurate than panels of specialists in detecting and diagnosing pneumonia, TB, certain early stage cancers, and other diseases.

AR/VR Market Map

AR/VR Market Map

Virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) may seem like new phenomena, but these technologies have been around since the 80s, when government organizations like NASA harnessed them to simulate real-life experiences, while tech enthusiasts applied them to gaming and entertainment. Mainstream interest fizzled for some time as researchers developed the technology, but a resurgence in the last decade brought a wave of innovations and venture funding. PitchBook's latest market map surveys the VR/AR and mixed reality (MR) global startups that have received the most venture funding, categorized into hardware and software segments, and then by end-user. For startups that span multiple segments or have multiple end-users, categorizations are based on our understanding of their primary use case or end-user.
