Automating Financial Review Processes with Ocrolus

Last fall we sent one of our MBAs over to the Caucasus for a month to scout interesting technology startups, one of which was Krisp. We spoke with co-founder Davit Baghdasaryan who previously served time in Silicon Valley before deciding to address an extremely difficult problem that nobody has solved yet – the ability to remove all forms […]

7 AI Healthcare Startups Digitizing Hospital Operations

We once had to rush a buddy to a hospital while cruising the steep switchbacks on Bali after his scooter zigged left and he zagged right. Aside from prison, hospitals are usually the last place you want to be in a Third World country. In this case, there was no doctor on duty at one […]

Process Mining vs. Business Process Discovery

As a boutique media company, we like to follow in the footsteps of others who have already figured things out. One of those companies is Skift, a media firm that covers one of our favorite topics outside of technology investing, travel. Slogans like “doing less with more is the new doing more with less,” or “going slow […]

Data Entry Automation With Machine Learning

In our recent article on Indonesia’s Big “Big Data” Problem, we looked at how technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) are being used to uncover new sets of data that corporations can use to better understand the world’s fourth biggest country by population. A consistent theme throughout the time we spent talking to local […]

7 AI Enterprise Solutions Getting Funding in 2018

We write an awful lot about artificial intelligence. Sometimes it might seem like so much hype that the AI bubble is primed to burst any day now. Our perspective is that AI and its related technologies – machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, natural language processing, and computer vision – is the new electricity. Pretty […]

Automation Anywhere and Robotic Process Automation

We recently came across an article in The Guardian warning about the rise of “pseudo AI” companies that fake the use of artificial intelligence by saddling humans with the mundane tasks the machines are supposed to take over. Some employ humans as a way to train the algorithms before the platform is ready to scale. […]

Robotic Process Automation From Blue Prism

Japan is an interesting place, with many things happening that most people don’t hear much about. Take for example, the legendary tanuki. It’s a dog-like raccoon-looking thing which roams the forests of Japan, carrying a set of testicles so large, that it uses them like a drum set to communicate with other tanuki. While the […]

Pega – Using AI for CRM and Process Automation

There’s a term we often use here on Nanalyze, “pure play”, which refers to the exposure any given stock has to a particular investment theme. Take Illumina for example. They build machines that are used to read genetic information. Since Illumina has around an 80% market share selling their sequencing machines, we can be assured that […]

7 Startups Using AI for Robotic Process Automation

Artificial intelligence is one of the sexiest, most disruptive technologies out there today. One day (very soon) machines will be able to predict diseases like Alzheimer’s or discover new therapeutic drugs that might cure cancer. We’re perhaps only decades away from the Singularity, the moment when the machines become exponentially smarter than us and everyone […]

What Jobs will Robots and AI Do in The Future?

If you work in finance these days, things are probably not as exciting as they used to be. Gone are the days of snorting cocaine in strip clubs at 4:00AM on a Tuesday morning. Nowadays you’re more likely to have a late night trying to figure out that elusive bug that’s keeping your trade automation program […]
