VCs are ploughing money into AI, but are they using it to make decisions?
An interesting survey about venture capital attitudes to data and tech echoes trends in the financial services industry writ large. VC invested some $24.6 billion in AI and machine learning in 2018, according to PitchBook data, and while this figure includes more than just the financial services sector, fintech investment has come in at record levels too last year.
