According to Pitchbook, Venture Capitalists have increased investment in Generative AI by 425% since 2020 to $2.1 Billion.
Generative AI models leverage artificial intelligence technologies to create entirely new content. This advancement from traditional machine-analysis, or AI, exemplifies how AI programs have learned from large language models created by Google, Microsoft, and Meta. These large artificial intelligence models are trained on vast quantities of data at scale and use large computing power resources to derive foundation models that are enabling the next phase of growth in artificial intelligence.
Off the back of a waning interest in Web3, investors are searching for the next hype investment, and the lull in broader VC investment activity isn’t showing up on cap tables in the generative AI landscape. Following unappetizing performances in the second half of 2022, Venture Capital investors are dusting off their checkbooks, with a budding interest in Generative AI investments.
