The flow of capital into Machine Learning startups recently certainly adds weight to the feeling that AI technology is reaching the tipping point of maturity where we will start to see a race of investors of all types into this sector.

However, with the potential massive wealth redistribution that will likely be caused by technology performing jobs that were previously the preserve of white collar workers - it's perhaps surprising that amongst the investor mix we're not seeing more AI focused crowd-funding platforms enabling private investors the opportunity to hedge themselves against being made redundant as this technology enters the mainstream.

Perhaps too there is a need for States to look at investing in this technology sector - as from the experience of Uber - we know how difficult it is for countries, cities, and regulators to influence the impact that disruptive technology has on society.
