Palo Alto, CA – January 19, 2017
Woodside Capital Partners (WCP) proudly releases “Artificial Intelligence: The Ultimate Technological Disruption Ascends” in conjunction with WCP Executive Director, Kartik Gada, presenting the firm’s findings at the Global Artificial Intelligence Conference on January 19 in Santa Clara, CA.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) software performs complex tasks of learning and cognition at a level that matches or exceeds that of humans. This characteristic makes AI a particularly unique technology from the perspective of business models and value creation, as it simulates (and often exceeds) human performance. The business of AI, while quietly advancing in relative obscurity for decades, has finally emerged from its chrysalis into an entirely new industry with its own multi-billion dollar titans, and will force incumbents to acquire aggressively to maintain competitiveness. It is our projection that the value of M&A and Private Placement transactions in AI over the next 5 years will exceed that of the previous 50 years, with several acquisitions topping the $1 Billion mark.
