Examining Top Data Analytics Firms in the 2019 Forbes AI 50

The 2019 Forbes AI 50 recognizes the best private artificial intelligence companies in the world. Ranging from a variety of industries including human resources, healthcare, transportation and data analytics, the annual listing makes mention of practitioners using AI in unique ways and generating real business impact. As part of the selection process for the list, Forbes’ data partner, Meritech Capital, received hundreds of submissions from the top AI startups.

In order to qualify for inclusion, companies needed to prove that technologies like machine learning, natural language processing and computer vision make up the core of their product. Once vetted, each AI company was ranked based on revenue gain, profitability, internal growth, customer statistics, and funding and valuations. Their scores were tabulated to produce the final ranks, which Forbes has arranged in ascending order of valuation.
