AI Startups Must Shoot the Right Problems

Emmanuel Christi Das, Editor

The pipeline for high caliber ‘been there, done that’ sort of founders has been growing by the scores while taking the startup plunge with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) tech in India. At the same time, startups with shallow applications of AI are quickly finding out that investors and clients alike have become more discerning.

For instance, Zoogaad raised USD500,000 back in 2014 to provide personalized news powered by AI. But, unlike Toutiao in China, it did little to push the boundary beyond Google alerts, and had to shut down.

At the other end of the spectrum is Bangalore-based SigTuple, which ticks most of the boxes for the new wave of promising AI startups coming out of India. SigTuple applies AI-powered analytics to visual medical data, such as blood smear slides that go under a microscope. This improves the speed and accuracy of diagnosis.
