teknowlogy unveils its "AI vendors of tomorrow" mappings
teknowlogy has carried out a major study on the artificial intelligence players on a global scale. We first listed some 3500 start-ups and SMEs which are software vendors and claim to offer artificial intelligence solutions. We analysed them closely (skills, financing, technical details...), and finally selected about 600 of them that seem to have serious offers. We then categorized these companies in order to give you a clear vision of who does what in a rough, plethoric and ever-changing market.
If you want to launch an artificial intelligence project, but are not familiar with its players, or if you cannot find your way around the abundance of available offers, the mappings we have designed, based on this selection and categorization work, can help you see through the fog. Below is an example of the mappings we have created for the "Smart retail & CPG" context.
Each company featured in these mappings has gone through our scanner - quite human - to validate whether or not it uses at least one AI feature. It is not so much a question of avoiding "AI washing" and other more or less justified marketing arguments, but of verifying that these solutions provide an innovative element, likely to make the difference for your projects and to meet your ambitions and expectations. The selected suppliers may therefore be of quite different size and means, but each of them has developed an AI-based software offer or platform that we consider relevant and innovative.
To discover these mappings, you can download our reports such as the one on "digital contexts", AI vendors of tomorrow - digital contexts which includes 11 vertical contexts with an analysis on the state of AI in each context and their associated players’ mapping "AI vendors of tomorrow". Two further reports will be published in December 2018 and January 2019, on the "fundamentals" of AI (8 maps) and on the horizontal sectors of a company (12 maps) respectively.
Of course, these maps can only give an overview of the information we have in our AI providers database . If you would like to know more, feel free to contact us!
