Practical Applications of Artificial Intelligence

We invest in Intelligent Software applications that leverage AI & ML


We invest in Intelligent Software applications that leverage Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.  We believe that the greatest value of AI is in the application layer – as Intelligent Software that brings breakthrough solutions to significant business problems and opens up vast revenue growth opportunities.

AI is a transformational capability that has reached an inflection point of commercial feasibility and technical viability. The biggest impact is made by companies that have figured out how to best use AI to solve specific, consequential problems across large, lucrative markets. We back high-growth companies innovating AI-enabled applications that sustainably and distinctively impact large end-markets.

AI is a capability.  Like any powerful new technology, how we use AI will determine how it impacts the world-at-large. We believe that AI has a profound and positive role to play in empowering people.

We subscribe to the thesis that most important applications of AI emerge through Augmentation – when people and machines work together to solve high-value problems and to open new revenue streams. Augmentation incorporates the automation of routine and repetitive tasks, which liberates people to focus on more meaningful work that requires uniquely human ingenuity, creativity, intuition, empathy, and judgment. But Augmentation is more than automation.  Augmentation harnesses intelligent software to make people orders of magnitude more productive, capable, and effective.  Augmentation is the “killer app” of the AI revolution.
