A new startup almost launches every week in the UK with Artificial Intelligence as its propelling force. The UK has one of the strongest artificial intelligence startup ecosystems in the word. We don’t know whether AI will prove to be the serpent and enslave the entire human race or entirely revolutionize the world. Either way, Brits have always had a reputation of a little competitive to an extent of conquering more than half of the world (Okay! My bad!).
The point here is that in the last two years, Britons have managed to create a formidable startup ecosystem backed by AI and according to the recent reports, the UK government has a whopping budget of £270m to invest in startups based on disruptive technologies such as AI and robotics.
Here are top 10 artificial intelligence startups of which you must need to know:
