A large number of artificial intelligent startups enter IPO? Do you see the huge trading market?

In the view of venture capitalists, the startup of the artificial intelligence is already time to enter the open market, and they have made more, larger, and earlier. For artificial intelligence startup, it is now a good time to raise funds. Although many of the financing records of the startups have risen in 2021, the more powerful and intelligent startups, which seems to have a broader customer demand, including more young and very long investors.

The frontier data from CB Insights describes in detail a global artificial intelligent financing market that is active. Of course, market financing may be slightly different in different regions. For these data, the AppHire Ventures Partner Jai Das and Glasswing Venture Partner Rudina Sseri conducted deep-depth research and analysis, further clarifying the flow of funds and development prospects in today’s artificial intelligent entrepreneurial market.

Record of transactions

The report of CB Insights shows that in the third quarter of 2021, investors have invested $ 17.9 billion to the world’s artificial intelligent startup. Since the first quarter of 2020, the financing amount of these enterprises has risen in quarterly. The artificial intelligent startup of the initiative is 6.3 billion US dollars, frequent transactions and recorded transactions have prompted these companies to usher in. Dramatic performance growth.

The total risk investment in the start-up industry has continued to rise in more large-scale huge round finance and billion or even more investment amounts, and the artificial intelligent entrepreneurial market is no exception. In the third quarter of 2021, a total of 45 super round financing was obtained in the third quarter of 2021. This is a huge financing of 45 or more in three consecutive quarters. In the first quarter of 2021 and the second quarter, 47 and 46 financing transactions were obtained separately.

The large trading amount shows the super round growth rate of artificial intelligent entrepreneurial companies, which is compared to how different years ago. According to CB Insights’s data and TechCrunch measurement, in 2020, an average of 19.75 huge transactions were obtained per quarter in the field of artificial intelligence. In 2019, this figure is only 13.5 per quarter, 12.25 in 2018, 2017 is only 6.

It is worth noting that accompanying time’s transition and growth of medium-term investment, the early stage of transactions is currently declining compared to the transaction share of the entire artificial intelligence startup. In 2020, early artificial intelligent investment accounted for 65% of total transactions, while medium-term transactions accounted for 20%. By 2021, this number is 61% and 22%, respectively; in 2020, there are 2,412 rounds of A1 round financing in the artificial intelligence field, including 2,073 rounds of financing in the third quarter. From this investment trend, it is foreseeable that the total investment volume of human intelligent industry in 2021 will continue to rise, compared to early transactions, the medium and long-term investment amount will have a new high.

In fact, in the financing of artificial intelligence, the oversized financing has fallen to 70% peak in the first quarter of 2021, fell to 57% in the third quarter. Early and mid-term artificial intelligent entrepreneurial companies are also expanding. The average transaction scale of artificial intelligence startup has increased from $ 18 million in 2020 to $ 3.3 million this year. Considering that the average data may have deviation due to some big transactions, we are more concerned with the median of the transaction size, which is also accelerating growth, which has increased from $ 5 million in 2020 to 700 to date. Wan Dollars, the increase is about 40%. More specifically, to the third quarter of 2021, the annuality of the angel wheel is a median of $ 6 million, above 2020 US $ 4 million.

These data seem to help us associate, a batch of startups are growing at high speed, busy solving a scene of another technical issue. Glasswing’s investors SSERI believes that although companies have become more extensive in recent years in recent years, artificial intelligence and machine learning products are also welcoming and challenge in various fields, which will further promote market demand. It also puts forward higher requirements for integrated operations from sales and marketing to cyber security.

Creating a wider range of customer bases and more advanced applications means that startup needs to invest a lot of money. Combined with data, we can draw the following conclusions:

  • The huge trading of artificially intelligent startups is constantly accelerating, which means that the initial company group is born more than ever. Most of these companies will need funds to drive their own exit, rather than seeking enterprises soft landing.
  • From the rising trading value, the transaction volume can be seen that the early financing market of artificial intelligence startups is strong, and the expansion of the medium-term transaction share should give post-investment to sufficient reserves. In a foreseeable future, this will also make the IPO of artificially intelligent startups continue to rise.

Of course, at the same time we also need to admit that all artificial intelligence startups we have focused can reach expectations with the above.

Artificial intelligence is everywhere

Although we are more interested in future technologies and cutting-edge artificial intelligence, many of these companies are actually handling more monotonous tasks every day. Of course, this will not cut the enthusiasm of the wind. Sapphire Ventures Investors DAS is very optimistic about these "bored artificial intelligence", which are used to solve many simple problems. As an example, the company is providing transcription and subtitle services that rely on artificial intelligence, and has been committed to "humanized" management, and maximize the accuracy of work.

Standing in sapphire’s pragmatic perspective, it does not oppose human cooperation with the machine, which is known through its attitude toward Verbit and some healthcare companies. DAS believes that "artificial intelligence will not replace human beings, but will make humans do better at work. Artificial intelligence is outbreak out in all fields, I think any development software will have built-in artificial intelligence."

It is because of artificial intelligence becomes universal in people’s lives, and it is easier to create an artificial intelligent startup or investment. "In the past few years, the market gauge has been significantly reduced," Glasswing’s investor Sseri said, "AI / ML is no longer simple in depth technology, it takes two or three years to realize business feasibility." She It also tries to explain this with the extensive model (Openai’s language generator GPT-3), template and powerful open source community, trying to explain this, in her opinion, "startup can use them to generate innovative solutions."

At the same time, SSERI added that accompanying artificial intelligence has increasingly significant added value, people’s demand is increasing, "company, especially enterprises, have been put in their data infrastructure and practice More and more funds, they can now get huge profits now. As the value of the bottom line tends to be clear, suppliers with cutting-edge, high-value innovation technology may require the improvement of the product service price. "

This is also reflected in the supply and demand resonance map proposed by the venture capital company PI Ventures, and the value of artificial intelligence has a significant change in the two axes in the figure: as the technology is simpler, the supply of artificial intelligence is increased; As demand increases, the previous potential demand is now "surface".

From the perspective of venture capital, the results are obvious: "More entrepreneurs can enter this area, prove the attraction of the industry, and get more funds from investors. But if you are the founder, don’t expect The interests of investors have been fair allocation, at least yet now, "SESESERI said.

Geographical dilemma

When we study the flow of artificial intelligent funds, the situation will become uncertain when it is specifically areaful. Taking the United States as an example, in the third quarter of 2021, the American artificially intelligent startup company received $ 10.4 billion in investment, a total of 324 transactions. In Asia, the total financing of these 321 similar transactions is only $ 4.8 billion. The Europe is less, and it only has a value of 1.6 billion US dollars from artificial intelligence starting funds from 142 transactions. There are also Latin America, with only 12 transactions, worth $ 500 million. In fact, Canada won 24 rounds of financing in the third quarter, achieving $ 400 million in capital flow, and its artificial intelligent risk investment amount, almost all venture capital acquired in Latin America.

In contrast, it is not difficult to conclusion. If the startup of the initial company wants to raise labor intelligence funds, it must be established in North America, Asia or Europe, and the other markets are not active. Of course, if an early trading leads to a small market that has been born in a small market, the current situation may change.

Many times, we will see similar intergenerational differences in various entrepreneurial markets. North America, Asia and Europe may be farther in certain areas such as financial technology, which promotes the efficient solution of startups to a series of issues.

In contrast, emerging markets in developing countries such as Latin America and Africa have emerged in huge financial science and technology investments in recent years, which may be because of their average economic levels, and there is less interference from financial ecosystems. If this status is true, we should see that the number of financing numbers in Latin America and Africa in the next few years will rise.

See you in December! Xiaomi 12 Series all-round prediction

Originally, the first batch of Snapdoo flagship new machines usually appear in the spring. However, millet 11 broke this practice a year ago, put the front to the end of the year.

Will you expect Xiaomi 12, will you also release it before the New Year?

the answer is,Probably.

Recently, a digital blogger released a screenshot, the title is "Xiaomi House Sales Guide".

These include the small rice home promotion activities from November 26 to December 25, when starting to cut the price, when selling outbreaks, all arrange it.

But, this is not a focus.

Let us fall on the last date –12.28, key postings live broadcast, new product appointment start.

It is not difficult to guess, Xiaomi 12 will be officially released on December 28, and the appointment can be made after the conference.

As for the credibility of this picture, I think it is quite high.

First, there is a text-numbered watermark on the screenshot, which does have a formal internal file in the field.

Second, the brokerage blogger also emphasized: "Asked,stableof".

It seems that the phone circle is about to start.

If you want you to know the upcoming millet 12 series, what is worth looking forward to.

If you talk nonsense, this will help you organize a wave.

Xiaomi 12 series

On the design, there are now many versions on the network.

There is a camera in the middle.

There is also put the camera on the left.

There is also a camera on the left and add a piece of sub-screen on the right (should be limited to Ultra models).

However, this is not important, what is important is to put on what shots.

Broken news shows that Xiaomi 12 Series will take 50 million pixels.

That is to say, the direction of the previous standard version of the billion-level pixels is changed.

The ULTRA of the main image will be based on the main subject, and it is familiar with the high-quality super wide angle and telephoto.

After a long time, the Leica camera is jointly, and it is finally true.

Positive, Xiaomi 12 Series can basically be determined to be a centered excavation screen, before the subway testing has confirmed us.

Why don’t you use the camera?

With the current technology, the screen camera is indeed a big impact on the display, and the Selfie effect has a great impact.

"I have to", it is really difficult.

For many people interested, the millet 12 series is also useless.

However, the previous generation of evaluations is more embarrassed, the visual inspection has been cut, and the R angle will definitely look smoothly.

In terms of parameters, Xiaomi 12 Series will support LTPO adaptive refresh rate, the resolution will be mainly 2k, and a model will use 1080P.

Don’t see "1080p", I feel that it is not fragrant. I know that this correspondence is 6.2 ~ 6.3-inch small screen models, the majority of netizens are expected.

At present, you cannot confirm the name of this model, or you can call millet 12 mini, and maybe a millet 12 youth, Xiaomi 12X is not impossible.

But compared to the previous generation youth, the stack of this small screen is completely not at a level.

First processor is the most popular Xiaolong 870 this year.

On performance, affirm that the Standard Edition of Xiaolong 8 Gen 1 (temporarily named), but the sacrifice of a little performance under small screen is difficult to heat dissipation, but may not be a bad thing.

And the software optimization of 870 has long been in place, there is no much power consumption and fever anxiety.

On this basis, images, cable fast charge, wireless fast charge, double raise, linear motor, NFC, infrared peripheral configuration, one a lot.

These configurations are added together, at least the small screen flagship should be able to meet the most users who have demand for small screens.

Cough, especially the nail household in Xiaomi 6 is still tempting ~

According to these versions of the previous rhythm, Xiaomi 12 series, it should be released twice, and the small screen and standard version are debuted on December 28.

Although this date, only one day after December 29, Xiaomi 11, but does not mean that Xiaomi can once again grab the first hair of the Snapdong flagship chip.

After all, other manufacturers have long been coveted with this name, and the explosion shows the flagship release of four Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in December.

You think that the Xiaomi 12 series possessions have been arranged at the end of the month, how big can the first probability?

At present, the old manufacturer Motorola is likely to sit on the first position.

According to the previous official preheating, Motorola will release the Edge X flagship mobile phone in the near future. At present, 3C certification, radio approval, and enter the network license, and the progress is very fast.

Although the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has not been released, the general manager of China Mobile’s mobile phone business (note, Motorola mobile phone has been acquired) has been revealed in Weibo. The actual performance of this chip.

For example, "network signal is strong", "a god frame rate line", and "performance ceiling is not unexpected or we", etc.

A bit look forward to the real machine ~

In addition, Motorola EDGE X also has 1080P / 144Hz screen, DC dimming, rear 1 / 1.55 inches, front 60 million pixel lens (you don’t have a mistake, 60 million), etc.

There is no doubt that this is the most important model after Motorola re-established the domestic market. Coupled with the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the attention is certainly not awkward.

Of course, no matter who is released first, optimize in place, the price is appropriate, the stock is enough.

How India and Germany can work together to tackle climate change

For over a year now, India, Germany and the entire world have been in crisis mode. The Covid-19 pandemic has left no country untouched. It is safe to say, we will either beat Covid-19 worldwide or not at all.

The virus briefly drew attention away from another crisis — climate change and its impact. In South Asia and Europe, we have become used to extremely hot weather, flooding, dramatic depletion of groundwater tables and drought. Climate change could even stop the world from achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We have agreed that global warming must be kept to well under 2 degrees Celsius and, if possible, to 1.5 degrees. Back in December 2015, 195 countries joined in Paris to sign an ambitious climate agreement. Each of those countries must deliver on their responsibilities. Climate change, too, is a crisis that can only be beaten worldwide or not at all.

India is one of few countries that looks set to deliver on the national goals it set itself as part of the Paris agreement. Compared to other G20 countries, its per capita emissions are very low.

At the same time, India must bear in mind the development interests of its large population. We firmly believe that sustainable growth and climate action go hand in hand. India now has the opportunity to make its massive investments in infrastructure over the next 15 years climate-smart and climate-resilient. This will also protect the interests of the most vulnerable sections of the population. Without India, the world will not be able to fight climate change. Without India, we cannot achieve the SDGs. That means that India has a leading international role to play in the global race to sustainability.

The EU has adopted an ambitious Green Deal to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and to decouple economic growth from consumption of natural resources. Germany recently adopted laws on reducing greenhouse gases more quickly, achieving climate neutrality by 2045 and stopping the use of coal for electricity production by 2038.

As Deputy Ministers in Germany’s Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, we come to India with the greatest confidence in the country’s political process and to learn from India. We see our responsibility as an industrialised country to both forge ahead with greening our own economy and also support other countries.

In 2015, India’s Prime Minister and Germany’s Federal Chancellor agreed to further strengthen the two countries’ strategic partnership. On this basis, Germany and India have succeeded in building up a cooperation portfolio worth almost 12 billion euros. Already, nine out of 10 measures support climate goals and SDGs together.

Indo-German development cooperation focuses on three areas: The transition to renewable energies, sustainable urban development and sustainable management of natural resources. As a pioneer of energy transition, Germany is offering knowledge, technology transfer and financial solutions. Over half the Indian population will live in cities by 2050. Our cooperation efforts support Indian policies to find sustainable solutions for this growth challenge in the face of limited urban resources and climate change.

The pandemic has shown global supply chains are vulnerable. Yet, when it comes to agriculture and natural resources, there are smart solutions that are being tested in India and Germany for more self-reliance, including agro-ecological approaches and sustainable management of forests, soils and water. Experience in India has shown that these methods also boost incomes for the local population and make them less dependent on expensive fertilisers, pesticides and seed. We look forward to deepening the work in this area. This is related to international health policies. Through a One Health approach, which looks at the close connections between human and animal health within their shared environment, we want to help tackle the challenges posed by population growth, increased mobility, shrinking habitats, industrialised farming and intensive animal husbandry.

Ultimately, we believe that global climate goals and the SDGs can only be achieved through cooperation between governments, the private sector, science, and civil society. India and Germany have innovative economies and many highly-trained people. We should harness that potential even more.
