The number of startups and companies dealing with artificial intelligence is growing steadily: according to Crunchbase there are 9.977 startups and companies dealing with artificial intelligence worldwide, with an increase in the first four months of 2021, of

In 2020 the capital collection of startups in this sector was 27.6 billion dollars, of which 62% were seeded rounds.

A rapidly changing market, therefore, in which even Italian startups, although they have not yet reached the investment rounds of international ones, can be protagonists: if we do a research on the database of innovative startups, are about a thousand those that declare that

Where artificial intelligence grows

As Edmondo Sparano, Chief Deal flow & Digital Officer of Digital Magics explains, artificial intelligence now affects almost all production sectors, being a technology that can replace, in part, human work, especially when it comes to

If in many cases these concepts still seem distant, startups have the merit of bringing everything in contact with everyday reality immediately trying to become as concrete as possible.

Digital Magics has therefore identified some application areas where startups are working.

Fight against misinformation: reading thousands, millions of news and recognizing those fakes, is a job that people could do, and that today they do people, but that artificial intelligence, by its nature, can automate and therefore make more and more effective.

Health: Use artificial intelligence to analyze large amounts of medical data and discover matches or create models to improve diagnosis and prevention.

Factories: for predictive maintenance or energy consumption management.

Agricultural and food industries: minimizing the use of fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation, helping productivity and reducing the environmental impact to produce healthier food.

Public administration and services: using data to develop models, the IA can provide an alert system for natural disasters, recognizing its first signs based on past experience. It would thus prevent and prepare the response to the disaster.

Web shopping and advertising: even from the consumer’s point of view things change with the introduction of artificial intelligence, changes shopping on the net and changes advertising, which becomes increasingly targeted, less related to cookies and more to behavior.

Personal digital assistants: virtual assistants answer questions, provide suggestions and are now part of the lives of many smartphone owners.

Machine translation software, based on audio or written texts, uses artificial intelligence to provide and improve translations.

Smart Home: Not only do intelligent thermostats learn our behavior to optimize energy, sensors also help to improve the safety of our homes.

Vehicles: Our cars already have some safety features that use artificial intelligence, for example sensors that detect possible dangerous situations and accidents.

Cybersecurity: this is a theme that will become increasingly important, because the more we entrust our lives to artificial intelligence, the more it must be controlled and secured by possible attacks.

Startups applying artificial intelligence

For each of these sectors we could mention several Italian startups that are creating innovative solutions thanks to the application of artificial intelligence and that demonstrate the variety of projects, ideas and products intended to revolutionize our lives not so dissimilar from blasonate and super funded reality

In the USA, Persado, the startup that helps to know users, creating the best and most effective advertising communication possible for them, has raised over 70 million, thus becoming one of the leaders in the sector.

In Italy, Contents.com technology, an Italian startup that has just completed a 5 million round, one of the largest in this field on early stage startups, is based on the artificial intelligence of Natural Language Generation and allows

We all know Alexa and the various domestic assistants who make our home a smart home, but few know Mind: born in 2018 in Modena, has created a smart home that is characterized by its design made in Italy As with the most famous competitors, Mind’s sensor network collects and learns tastes and habits of every inhabitant of the house to make the environment sensitive to the lifestyle of each.

Continuing its comparison with international realities, German Bryter, founded almost three years ago, with about 90 million capital raised, quickly became the main no-coding automation platform for business services: it allows to transform business services into interactive applications available throughout

Returning to Italy, Klondike.Ai created the first artificial intelligence services marketplace with a plug-in logic: choose the service you need (image recognition, OCR, lead cataloging, etc.)

The examples are very many and for Sparano show that there is a lot of talent here in Italy, and if it is true that artificial intelligence, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, has the potential to increase by 16% the global economy by 2030, it is necessary that the
