London and Berlin-based, AI-powered health app maker Ada Health has raised $47 million (40 million euro) in a funding round led by global investment group Access Industries. June Fund, Cumberland VC, and entrepreneur William Tunstall-Pedoe also contributed along with existing investors. Ada Health officially launched its app back in April after a soft launch in late 2016 and six years of research and development. It's one of a handful of companies using artificial intelligence and natural language processing. It asks relevant, personalized questions and suggests possible causes for users' symptoms.
