11 May 2019. We’ve given a lot of coverage recently to artificial intelligence on Science & Enterprise, as A.I. gains a greater presence in the worlds of science and business. A.I., of course, covers a number of technologies, with machine learning seeming to make the biggest recent splash. With machine learning, smart systems can not only process huge amounts of different data, their algorithms adjust and become even smarter as they learn from these data.

Then it should come as no surprise that venture investors are taking note of these developments. Our friends at Statista published a chart yesterday indicating that so far this year, machine learning applications and platforms are gaining the most investment dollars worldwide for A.I., this weekend’s infographic. The chart shows machine learning applications attracted some $29 billion through March 2019, with machine learning platforms taking in another $14 billion.

In the next tier of investment targets are smart robotics, computer vision applications and platforms, and natural language processing each bringing in from $6 billion to $8 billion in the first quarter of 2019. Statista gathered these data from the technology/finance research company Venture Scanner and its own internal sources.

Just a reminder, if you want to write about A.I. and machine learning, or just learn some of the basics, I published A Journalist’s Guide to Demystify A.I. last month, found on Medium.
