Search for a start-up company that is using machine learning or deep learning to enhance business operations and business analysis. Tell me your search strategy.
Note: The target client must be other businesses. If the start up provides a tool for improving systems development (i.e. date compression, cybersecurity, smoother app production…) it does not count. If the tool is targeted at consumers, it does not count.
Note: You’re not being asked to pick a company at random or take the first one you find. You’re being asked to search for an interesting startup. If two students choose the same start up, they will both have to resubmit. Remember “[m]ore than 3,600 AI startups have raised $66 billion since 2013 in over 70 countries, data shows.” (Axios, July 6, 2019).
Hint: Use your industry specific knowledge to help narrow down the choices. Do not use AI as a search term.
Hint: You don’t have to like the company you choose, which will make your
analysis in part 3 all the more interesting!
