SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, Text IQ was named to the prestigious AI 100 list alongside just four other companies in the "Risk & Regulatory Compliance" category. Officially billed as "a ranking of the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world," the list is authored annually by CB Insights, the authority on emerging trends in artificial intelligence. Only nine percent of all nominees and applicants were selected for this year's ranking, and nine countries were represented among the finalists.
WorkFusion, Socure, Onfido and Merlon Intelligence joined Text IQ in the "Risk & Regulatory Compliance" group, with other highlighted categories including "Healthcare," "Agriculture," "Life Science" and "Robotics." Each housed a handful of innovative companies using cutting-edge AI technology to positively impact their respective fields.
CB Insights CEO and co-founder Anand Sanwal revealed the second annual list at the A-ha! conference in San Francisco, recognizing the companies in front of an audience of 400 senior innovation executives from around the world.
"Last year's AI 100 enjoyed amazing success in the year since earning this recognition. Fifty-five of them went on to raise additional funding nearing $2B and five were acquired," Sanwal said. "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."
