This week we continue our series on the top 5 VC-funded deals in AI.

Funding rounds are starting to increase again for the AI sector.   Perhaps an ebb and flow will be the new normal – we’re still trying to establish that patter for our readers.

Last week, our funding winner Valar Labs had a $22M VC investment and this week, Eko Health comes in with a $41M Series D round as our top funded entity.

The week’s funding round winners were companies offering the following:

  • AI application for early detection of heart & lung diseases
  • AI-powered healthcare administration platform
  • AI-powered search and content discovery platform for e-commerce
  • Generative AI solution for end-to-end risk analysis for underwriters and
  • Generative AI for legal research and litigation tasks

Healthcare (x2), search & content, risk analysis (for insurance) and legal research and litigation.  Interesting, yes?  Let’s see how this pattern continues as we move forward.
