We rounded up 10 early-stage AI startups focused on the manufacturing industry, from industrial cybersecurity solutions to machine learning tools that analyze manufacturing data.
As manufacturing is increasingly digitized, startups are applying machine learning techniques to allow industrial equipment — ranging from cutting edge robotic arms to the torrents of machine data — to operate more intelligently.
Deals to advanced manufacturing startups hit a high-water mark in 2016, while established industrial AI platforms such as C3 IoT, Sight Machine, and FogHorn continue to raise eye-popping middle- and-late stage rounds.
Using the CB Insights platform, we surfaced 10 notable early-stage AI startups focused on advanced manufacturing, industrial IoT, and robotics.
We selected these companies based on their disclosed funding, as well as their Mosaic score, CB Insights’ algorithm that uses financial and non-financial signals to evaluate private company health. All companies listed below have raised funding since H3’15.
