DataVisor Named to the 2019 CB Insights AI 100 List of Most Innovative Artificial Intelligence Startups

February 12, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2019--CB Insights today named DataVisor 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.

“DataVisor has made great strides in fighting digital fraud using AI and machine learning and this is a testament to our success,” said Yinglian Xie, CEO and cofounder of DataVisor. “Conventional rules based systems and current machine learning based solutions are reactive and useful only for keeping up with known types of fraud. Unfortunately, when it comes to fraud detection, if you’re just keeping up, you’re already behind. It is our goal at DataVisor to always be one step ahead. Our work with AI using proprietary unsupervised machine learning approaches allows us to outpace malicious actors and deliver the best product to our customers.”

Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the AI 100 from over 3,000 companies based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
