The Big 4 vs. The World 🌎

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that there is a much higher demand for AI talent than there is supply. No surprise, but the answer for a lot of firms appears to be buying AI startups to help infuse talent. 💸

Even less of a surprise, Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon are leading the way when it comes to quantity of acquisitions. The mind blowing part is that there were 115 acquisitions last year! 😱
