AI’s Future is Indian: SenseAI Whitepaper and Startup Survey Highlight AI’s Transformative Impact and India’s Starring Role

Bengaluru, India – July 3rd, 2024 – SenseAI Ventures, a leading AI fund, announced the launch of a whitepaper, “Artificial Intelligence: Beyond the Hype,” and the results of a survey of Indian AI startup founders. The whitepaper explores crucial topics such as AI’s progress in 2023, its tangible effects on industries, the layered AI technology stack, novel research directions, and adoption models, serving as a roadmap for understanding AI’s current and future trajectory. This analytical piece, contributed to by SenseAI’s Managing Partner, Rahul Agarwalla, among others, offers a nuanced view into the practical impact and future direction of artificial intelligence across various sectors.


The whitepaper highlights that $17 billion was invested by big tech (Nvidia, Microsoft, Google, AWS) into foundational AI models, while $50 billion worth of GPUs were sold in 2023. This massive investment in AI infrastructure is expected to drive explosive growth in AI applications in the future, similar to how investments in physical infrastructure like roads and airports lead to economic growth.


To complement the whitepaper, SenseAI also conducted a comprehensive survey of around 100 startup founders in India who work in the AI space. The survey findings provide valuable insights into the current state and future prospects of AI in India. One of the key revelations is that SaaS (Software as a Service) has emerged as the dominant business model among the surveyed startups, indicating a growing preference for cloud-based AI solutions. The survey also highlights a moderate demand for customized AI solutions among the clients of these startups, suggesting an increasing recognition of AI’s potential to address specific business needs.


However, the survey also sheds light on the challenges in AI adoption. The most common hurdles faced by clients, as reported by the respondents, include cost, complexity, and limited understanding of AI’s implications. These findings underscore the need for more accessible and user-friendly AI solutions, as well as better education and awareness about AI’s potential benefits and risks.


In terms of the technologies utilized by the surveyed startups, Cloud takes the lead, followed closely by OpenAI’s GPT-4o. This indicates a growing reliance on cloud infrastructure and large language models in AI development. Interestingly, the respondents also highlighted Fine Tuned Models / Proprietary Algorithms and Unique Data as their most critical intellectual properties or unique features, emphasizing the importance of customization and domain-specific expertise in AI.


Looking ahead, the survey respondents identified security, bias, and data availability/readiness as the most significant risks associated with AI. These concerns reflect the broader societal and ethical challenges that come with the rapid advancement of AI technologies. On a more optimistic note, the respondents singled out Explainable AI (XAI), AI agents, and Quantum Computing as the emerging technologies and trends that can create the most impact in the future.


The whitepaper and survey also underscore the transformative potential of AI across various sectors. Investment in AI within healthcare is projected to reach $18.8 billion by 2027, highlighting AI’s critical role in diagnostic and analytical applications. The AI fraud management sector is forecasted to grow from a $10.4 billion valuation in 2023 to $57.1 billion by 2033, with an annual growth rate of 18.5%, underscoring AI’s increasing importance in financial security. The expanding capabilities and decreasing costs of AI signal a surge in AI applications, poised to redefine productivity and transform job markets. Research indicates that AI-adopting firms are on track to double their market share, with efficiency gains potentially reaching tenfold by 2024.


Rahul Agarwalla, Managing Partner at SenseAI, shared his thoughts on the whitepaper’s findings and the survey results, “We are at a turning point where AI is no longer just a buzzword, but a force that will reshape industries, economies, and societies in ways we can barely imagine. India has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead this change and win, thanks to our incredible pool of talent, entrepreneurial drive, and the wealth of data at our fingertips. The survey findings underscore the tremendous potential of Indian AI startups, as well as the challenges they face in driving AI adoption. At SenseAI, our goal is to be a catalyst in this journey. We want to back the bold founders who are building AI solutions not just for India, but for the world. It’s an exciting time, and we can’t wait to see where this takes us.”


India’s potential as an AI leader is underscored by its digital infrastructure, widespread mobile connectivity, and a rich pool of tech talent. SenseAI is committed to propelling India’s ascendancy in AI, harnessing these national strengths to develop groundbreaking solutions for both local and international markets.
