CB Insights today named Hazy to its annual AI 100 ranking, showcasing the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world.
“This is the sixth year that CB Insights has recognized the most promising private artificial intelligence companies with the AI 100. This year’s cohort spans 13 industries, working on everything from recycling plastic waste to improving hearing aids,” said Brian Lee, SVP of CB Insights’ Intelligence Unit. “Last year's AI 100 companies had a remarkable run, raising more than $6 billion, including 20 mega-rounds worth more than $100 million each. We’re excited to watch the companies on this year’s list continue to grow and create products and services that meaningfully impact the world around them.”
“We are thrilled that Hazy has made it onto this prestigious list recognising the most promising artificial intelligence companies across 13 industries. It is particularly exciting that we have been recognised within the financial services industry. Firms within this sector have a wealth of data at their fingertips yet are constrained by regulatory frameworks from accessing and using it effectively. Synthetic data frees financial firms, enabling them to use data without restriction.”Harry Keen,
