MetaMind Raises $8 Million to Bring Artificial Intelligence to the Masses - Businessweek

A deep learning market reality check

"MetaMind is jumping into a field crowded with big names investing orders of magnitude higher than $8 million. (Most, to be fair, keep their research to themselves.) And it’s not always easy to get lay customers to use the kinds of tools it’s selling even if they’re interested in the results, says Andrew Maas, a co-founder of Roam Analytics, which uses machine learning tools to build sales software. “The end user has to be smart enough that they’re going to be able to give you the data and set up the problem in a format that it is solvable by the techniques we have,” says Maas. “But at the same time, the user has to be not smart enough or not experienced enough to use the open source tools and run it themselves.”"
