Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) is ahead of all technologies in terms of volume terms, robotics has the edge over others in terms of investors-to-idea ratio. The rise in interest for robotics is also supported by the average deal value recorded in this segment, which is the second highest at $28 million compared to AI’s $18 million.

Interestingly, blockchain has seen the lowest investor interest as well as the lowest average deal value among all technologies, with a 2.23 investors-to-idea ratio and $12 million respectively in 2017.

GlobalData’s analysis noted a mixed result for connected devices & IoT segment, which stood atop the average deal value chart with $29.5 million, but slipped to third in terms of interest at a 2.62 investors-to-idea ratio.
