A ranking of the 100 most promising private artificial 

intelligence companies in the world.


The AI 100 recognizes the teams and technologies that are successfully using AI to solve big challenges. The award winners were announced in December 2017 at the A-ha! conference hosted at SFJAZZ in San Francisco on December 12 & 13.


Last year's AI 100 enjoyed amazing success in the year since earning this recognition. 55 of them went on to raise additional funding nearing $2B and 5 were acquired.  


This year's list was culled from 1,000+ applications and looks even more impressive.  These are companies using artificial intelligence in industries from drug discovery and cybersecurity to robotics and legal tech.  I'm happy that CB Insights is able to shine a light on the founders and companies that will revolutionize these industries and look forward to seeing what they do in 2018 and beyond.
