Algolux honored for achievements in computer vision for safety-critical applications
“This is the fifth year CB Insights has recognized the most promising private artificial intelligence companies with the AI 100, and this is one of the most global groups we’ve ever seen. This year’s cohort spans 18 industries, and is working on everything from climate risk to accelerating drug R&D,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “Last year’s AI 100 companies had a remarkable run after being named to the list, with more than 50% going on to raise additional financing (totaling $5.2B), including 16 $100 million+ mega-rounds. Many also went on to exit via M&A, SPAC or IPO. As industry after industry adopts AI, we expect this year’s class will see similar levels of interest from investors, acquirers and customers.”
“Algolux is thrilled to be recognized as one of the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world,” said Allan Benchetrit, CEO of Algolux. “Our groundbreaking technologies uniquely address poor computer vision accuracy, a well-known issue in low light and adverse weather conditions. Robustness is becoming a key requirement for our customers’ safety-critical applications in industries such as automotive and smart city infrastructure. We look forward to progressing on our path of delivering technologies that allow our customers to get the most dependability from their computer vision systems.”
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the AI 100 from a pool of over 6,000 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.
