Over the past two decades, artificial intelligence has quickly
become one of the most buzzy technologies.
Giants like IBM have doubled-down on AI-backed offerings ,
while a rush of startups have emerged that are trying to use
the tech to overhaul operations ranging from stocking shelves
to supply chain negotiations .
Along with that has come a bonanza of venture capital
funding that has created so-called unicorns like Indigo Ag,
UiPath , and SenseTime. In the past 20 years, investors have
poured roughly $407 billion into AI startups, per data firm
PitchBook.
