“Thought Report” on AI and Machine Learning

Overview of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning Sector

Palo Alto, CA – November 15, 2016 – Menalto Advisors is pleased to announce its initial “Thought Report” on the topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning. This is the first in what is expected to be a series of reports covering topics related to the technology industry and M&A.

One of the hottest and potentially most disruptive areas of technology is artificial intelligence. Over the next decade, AI and machine learning have the potential to have a profound impact on many different end markets and applications, and even our daily lives. While AI has gone through a number of hype cycles since the term was first coined in the 1950s, there appears to be mounting evidence that this will be a very important sector during the coming years.  

As such, we wrote a report on AI technology. The Menalto Advisors 130+ page report highlights many different aspects of the AI sector including:

  • An overview of AI including: history, why the market is hot now, applications, AI platforms, AI chips, investing and corporate activity, and other recent trends
  • An AI/machine learning technology primer
  • Summaries of more than 70 AI and machine learning M&A transactions
  • Brief profiles of more than 70 AI/machine learning start-ups

To request a copy of the report, please contact one of the senior bankers at Menalto Advisors or send an email request to
