The 2021 Forbes AI 50 recognizes the top artificial intelligence companies in the world. Our editors examine which data science firms warrant extra attention.
The 2021 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.
The editors at Solutions Review have perused the 2021 Forbes AI 50 and identified these top data science firms as warranting extra attention. Companies are listed in the order Forbes has them ranked.
