Informatica IPO: Better the second time around?


Today, Informatica is going public, once again. The company, which went private in a $5.3 billion deal back in 2015, expects to raise $841 million on this round. Informatica's emergence from private equity comes as the company has transitioned to a cloud-first business where subscriptions have climbed to nearly half of overall revenue. Informatica's journey into private equity has been a familiar one: a company seeks to transform its core business without the pressure of having to deliver quarterly results to Wall Street. It's a well-trod path that has been followed by a wide range of household names, and most recently in the data world, Cloudera.

A.I. Breakthrough Could Disrupt the $11 Trillion Medical Sector


A massive disruption now appears imminent in one of the world's largest – and most important – industries. In much the same way that Amazon disrupted the retail business – and how PayPal disrupted the payments industry – one under-the-radar health technology company now seeks to transform the $11.85 trillion global health industry. By moving healthcare away from brick and mortar, traditional medicine into an AI-driven tool that offers unprecedented speed, efficiency, and accuracy... Investors still have a brief window of opportunity to get in on this transformational investment opportunity while it still flies beneath Wall Street's radar. But as you'll soon discover, this company's technology is so powerful that it could become a valuable addition to hundreds of millions of households worldwide. Whether most patients, providers, or large healthcare companies realize it or not, the healthcare industry is already in the early stages of significant change. That's because patients now desire access to more information – and better information – in the blink of an eye. In a recent survey of U.S. health consumers, 71% reported facing major frustrations through their experience with healthcare providers. Concerns ranged from difficulties scheduling appointments to impersonal visits.

4 ways startups can use AI to make a real social impact, right now


In northern Canada, translator apps are helping researchers preserve a threatened Inuit language and connecting the remote communities that still speak it. In London, developers are working to make object recognition more personal for blind and low-vision individuals, a critical step in including the users of the technology in collecting the data that creates it, and improving their access to the world. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, cognitive search functions are being used to tag and classify artworks in more detail than ever before in order to make the collection accessible, in a meaningful way, to people who may never set foot inside. Scientists at the CSIRO in Australia are reducing plastic waste flowing into the ocean by using object recognition on river bridges and sensors in stormwater drains to identify, quantify and remove rubbish before it reaches the sea. The common denominators in these initiatives is the fact they are powered by AI and supported by Microsoft Azure's cloud technology, with funds also provided by Microsoft.

Is Stock a Buy?

#artificialintelligence's (NYSE:AI) stock tumbled 10% on Sept. 2 after the artificial intelligence software provider posted its first-quarter earnings. Its revenue rose 29% year-over-year to $52.4 million, beating estimates by $1.1 million. It posted a net loss of $37.5 million -- compared to a slim profit of $150,000 a year ago -- but its loss of $0.37 per share still matched Wall Street's expectations.
