How is artificial intelligence changing things?
Heramb Ramachandran: AI is a potential game-changer in the sourcing of deals. The sweat equity devoted to building up a pipeline that currently might take months and years could potentially be replaced by data-mining bots with real-time analytics.
Omar Hassan: AI’s chief contributions are going to be the back and middle office, where it can address recurring tasks. To me, it’ll be a cost reduction exercise.
Béla Szigethy: Each of our portfolio companies is in some way benefiting from AI. I would love to see our own firm use AI to help make better investment decisions. We have a broad universe of companies and experiences for an AI algorithm to draw upon. Can’t wait!
