New York, NY, February 6, 2019 -- CB Insights today named Eigen Technologies to the third annual AI 100 ranking, showcasing the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world.
“After being named to the AI 100 in 2018,
last year’s honorees raised nearly $4.5B across 45 deals with 6 going on to be
valued at $1 billion or more,” said CB
Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “The data we compiled on this year's nominees,
ranging from their customers to their patents to their CB Insights' Mosaic
scores, revealed 100 AI companies that are driving transformation across a
number of industries and which are taking on a variety of large societal issues
ranging from disaster management to cancer diagnosis to detecting fake news. We
expect these companies will see similar levels of momentum and progress in 2019
and are excited to continue to track their progress.”
In addition to disrupting core sectors
including healthcare, telecommunications, semiconductor, government, retail,
and finance, the 2019 AI 100 companies are revamping the broader enterprise
tech stack. These companies span the globe, from the US, UK, Israel, Japan,
China, Germany, Sweden, and Canada, and are supported by more than 680
investors from 29 countries.
Eigen's Co-founder & CEO Dr Lewis Z. Liu said: “we are absolutely delighted to have been listed in the 2019 CB Insights AI 100. It is an honor to be named one of the most innovative AI companies in the world alongside so many other great businesses by an organization as prestigious as CB Insights. This achievement is thanks to the fantastic work done by the Eigen team over the last few years in developing our highly flexible NLP technology that puts the power of machine learning into the hands of its users.”
