We know that artificial intelligence will soon reshape our world. But which companies will lead the way? To help ­answer that question, research firm CB Insights recently selected the “AI 100,” a list of the 100 most promising artificial intelligence startups ­globally. The private companies were chosen (from a pool of over 1,650 candidates) by CB Insights’ Mosaic algorithm, based on factors like financing history, investor quality, business category, and momentum. A look at the 50 largest startups on the list, ranked by total funds raised, shows that investment in AI is surging worldwide. But, for now at least, the U.S. appears to be leading the revolution.

~ Branded Content Features ~
Single and Multi- Sponsored Opportunities Throughout 2017!

These timely features will be written by best-selling author Peter Fingar of COGNITIVE WORLD. 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, AI, is a field of endeavor that’s been around since the 1950s. Now, with “deep learning,” AI is finally getting human-like intelligence, and man and machine are working together in ways both subtle and life-changing. The AI redux, Cognitive Computing, is having a transformational impact on work and society as a whole, making life—and business—more productive and efficient. AI applications abound in fraud detection, medical diagnosis, oil exploration, surveillance and security, speech recognition, translation and much more. 

FORTUNE, in partnership with AI World, will explore the trends, highlight the key players, and describe what the future has in store in branded content features appearing throughout 2017, in both print and digital formats. We’ll show how “computers that learn” are already enabling applications in fraud detection, medical diagnosis, oil exploration, surveillance and security, speech recognition, translation and transcription, and more. We’ll also explain how new cognitive technologies are set to transform everything from shopping to driving to our daily work lives. 

These features will be written by best-selling author of Cognitive Computing: a Brief Guide for Game ChangersPeter Fingar. Don’t miss this chance to tell your Cognitive Technologies story to FORTUNE’s decision-makers in our timely, must-read features.
