Machine Learning, AI & Data Office Hour for Startups


As machine learning and artificial intelligence transition from peak hype into mature productivity, they assume an increasingly integral position in the technology strategy of most startups in life science and health.

On the other side of the table, sophisticated investors demand robust roadmaps and nearer-term proof-points. Early-stage teams often struggle to navigate a highly fragmented data landscape and unfamiliar types of feasibility risks, while faced with an excruciatingly meagre pool of experts.

Yet the core tenets of success remain boringly unchanged: (i) high-quality data over complex algorithms; (ii) start simple, then expand; (iii) stay focused on working backwards from the goal and (iv) ultimately, it’s all about people.
