A list of artificial intelligence tools you can use today — for businesses (2/3)

July 11th 2017

The long awaited Part 2 of 3 of this series has arrived. It has taken me a significant amount of time longer to put together than I had anticipated. Now the wait is over, here it is…

This list contains companies working on artificial intelligence and machine learning products primarily for business use, non-specific to any industry. Industry specific AI will be the final part of this series.

You can find the consumer AI version here: Part 1 —A list of artificial intelligence tools you can use today — for personal use.

Rise of artificial intelligence is rapidly taking over the world, especially countries like Anguilla; a small island in the Eastern Caribbean with the use of their .ai top level domain for companies within the AI and robotics industry (we too are guilty of this at Lyra). But in all seriousness, AI is without a doubt accelerating much faster than is probably known and much more established within our daily lives than most would realise. Conducting this research has demonstrated sheer scale of the landscape and progress of the artificial intelligence industry.

“Already humans and AI are co-evolving and no one has paid attention to this yet…”

“When we search on Google, it’s an AI deciding what we should see. When a dating site matches two people together there’s a machine learning algorithm… that is getting people together, that then have babies. And so in effect you have this machine learning algorithm that is breeding humans.”— Sam Altman, discussing AI here.

In the case of the companies listed below, business and AI are co-evolving.

With so many websites to go through and dissect there may be some descriptions or names that need changing. Please let me know if that’s the case or if you think there are companies I should add to the list. Shoutout to me here, and I’ll get on to it!
