CB Insights releases AI 100 2018 rankings
Data analysis firm CB Insights has released the 2018 edition of its AI 100 rankings, featuring a list of the technology startups that are expected to lead global AI innovation throughout the coming year.
The winners were announced at CB Insight’s A-ha! Conference, held in San Francisco between 12-13 December.
AI 100 2018 was compiled from a selection of 1,000 emerging AI-based applications and solutions across a diverse range of industries including FinTech & insurance, education, healthcare, IoT and robotics.
The Mosaic scale was then used to determine which companies made the list – a quantitative framework that measures the overall potential of companies.
A total of 33 companies that featured on last year’s list were once again ranked in the second annual edition, with the 100 companies named in AI 100 2017 having gone on to raise a total of $2bn in funding.
Further, the private firms that feature on the 2018 rankings raised approximately $6.6bn in 99 deals throughout 2017, with 11 of these having reached a valuation of $1bn or more.
Amongst the new list, the most common industry was cybersecurity, with 11 of the 100 companies named operating within this sphere.
Searching for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology
The search is on for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology 2021 – nominated by readers of Technology magazine and open to all.
The initiative has been launched and nominations are now open, with the final, prestigious Top 100 due to be announced during Technology and AI LIVE running 14-16 September, beamed from London to the world.
This latest, definitive list of the leading executives and influencers in the industry will be announced at the event and shared across social media channels, this website, and presented in a special supplement that honours all of those named in our annual list.
The Top 100 Leaders follows on from the well-received Top 100 Women in Technology that BizClik Media Group (BMG) – publishers of Technology magazine, AI magazine and a growing portfolio of industry-leading titles – produced in March this year to coincide with International Women’s Day.
“The Top 100 Women recognised the incredible and influential women driving our industry,” says Scott Birch, editorial director, BMG. “The success of that initiative encouraged us to recognise the Top 100 Leaders – individuals championing everything that we love about technology and embracing best practice that’s good for business.”
Nominations are already coming in, with some notable highlights including:
Rhonda Vetere - Herbalife
Bryan Smith - Expedient
