Vertical AI Startups: Solving Industry-specific Problems by Combining AI and Subject Matter Expertise
Date: June 19, 2017
- Designing the right product interface requires subject matter expertise, and owning the interface allows you to instrument it and gather proprietary data.
- You control the ‘data value chain’ and have pricing power and defensibility over time.
- Product and sales at vertical AI startups benefit from bringing in key leaders from the industry early on in the business.
- Defensible AI businesses are built on proprietary data that is difficult to replicate.
- By contrast, Vertical AI solutions are about AI unlocking entirely new opportunities rather than just optimizing existing opportunities.
