First, China is a major factor in the funding and control of many Indian startups. In 2015, Alibaba invested in Paytm through its affiliate Ant Financial. In 2017, Tencent took major stakes in Flipkart and Ola. Japan too, is a serious provider of funding in India. Japanese giant Softbank has invested over USD8B in startups in the country, with a goal of USD10B by 2024 that now looks surprisingly conservative. The major drivers of startup establishments are AI and ML. And probably, these technologies have a default magnet for funding from investors; obviously, due to the demand. The demand for AI & Machine Learning is exploding--from the startups making efforts to ace it to the job-seekers chasing it to the growing tech community watching its every move. India has witnessed a spectacular growth in the number of analytics startups over the last few years. In the last one year, we have covered numerous analytics startups that are working in the areas of healthcare, fashion, real estate, agriculture, facilitating lending decisions, emotional intelligence, voice-based solutions, hybrid TV powered by AI and many more. India is reputed to be the market full of efficient machine learning developers. World-class software development services to countless companies are easily accessible due to these developers. The competition level in this field is increasing day by day. And, for a startup and SME, it's very confusing to pick the best artificial intelligence companies in India due to a large number of choices. India's startup environment also has a major dichotomy between highly funded companies and those struggling to raise capital. You may be surprised to learn that India is currently home to 26 unicorns (startups valued over USD1B) with 5 new unicorns joining the club in 2018 (the most on record for a single year in India).So, pretty much all the startups are dwelling deep in the ML universe. It is hard to say how far the solutioning trends will go before it goes obsolete. Until then, we need to embrace and appreciate the amazing work the startups are doing to help businesses and enterprises to grow manifold and increase their productivity. This edition presents the most promising machine learning ventures. Each is solving a crucial business pain point. Hope one of them come to your rescue.Do let us know what you think.Emmanuel Christi DasAsst.
