Like it or not, AI is part of our lives from here on out — for better or worse. In the past six months alone, TechCrunch has written nearly 600 articles focused on the impact of AI technology in our lives across industries as varied as film, healthcare, marketing and supply chains to name but a few.

AI touches the Startup Battlefield 200

We’re deep into vetting this year’s Startup Battlefield 200 cohort of outstanding startups to exhibit at Disrupt 2023. We’re guessing AI will be a force, but we’re keeping a tight lid on who might make the cut. However, AI made its presence known last year. Check out the videos of these three AI-focused SB 200 startups:

Alaffia (health)
