More information about the initiative studying in 12 different categories such as image processing, insight and data analytics, search assistant and search engine, natural language processing, ‘chatbot’, machine learning, optimization, autonomous vehicles, robotic process automation and smart platforms is available at https://turkiye.ai/girisimler/. The distribution of Artificial Intelligence Initiative Startup Categories stated in the Map is as: Image processing: 47 / Insight and Data Analytics: 21 / Search Assistant and Search Engine: 6 / Natural Language Processing: 16 / Chatbot and Dialogical Artificial Intelligence: 17 / Machine Learning: 32 / Optimization: 9 / Autonomous Vehicle: 6 / Robotic Process Automation: 7 / Smart Platform Areas: 3
Since the entrepreneurial ecosystem developed and the artificial intelligence gained speed in recent years, Turkey Artificial Intelligence Initiative ecosystem has grown significantly. Completing the year 2017 with 24 initiatives, the initiative had 28 company support, 9 technology business partners and 64 initiatives on the ecosystem map in 2018. The number of startups working on subjects such as image processing, natural language processing, autonomous vehicle, ‘chatbot’, speech recognition, prediction and analytics increased to 75 in 2019. By March 2020, with the interest of the private sector in artificial intelligence, increasing investment and support opportunities, artificial intelligence startups continued to create value, improve their area of influence and reached 112.
