Afiniti Named to the 2018 AI 100, Highlighting Advancements in Artificial Intelligence and Enterprise Solutions.

San Francisco, CA (December 12, 2017)– CB Insights today named Afiniti to the prestigious AI 100, a select group of promising private companies working on groundbreaking artificial intelligence technology. CB Insights CEO and co-founder Anand Sanwal will reveal the full list of the second annual AI 100 companies at the A-ha! conference in San Francisco.

“Last year’s AI 100 enjoyed amazing success in the year since earning this recognition. 55 of them went onto raise additional funding nearing $2B and 5 were acquired. This year’s list was culled from 1000+ applications and looks even more impressive. These are companies using artificial intelligence in industries from drug discovery and cybersecurity to robotics and contact centres. I’m happy that CB Insights is able to shine a light on the founders and companies that will revolutionize these industries and look forward to seeing what they do in 2018 and beyond.” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal.

“We’re thrilled to be included by CBInsights in this year’s AI 100. 2017 has been a great one not just for Afiniti, but for AI more broadly, and it’s important through the work of CBInsights and others, that we draw attention to the positive impact which AI is having on businesses across the world today. Afiniti’s AI technology is delivering transformational levels of revenue, cost reduction, and customer satisfaction to our clients, and we’re pleased to be recognized for the impact we’re having”, said Afiniti CEO Zia Chishti.

The CB Insights research team selected the AI 100 companies based on criteria, examining company-submitted data and the company’s Mosaic Score. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ National Science Foundation-funded algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies. Through this evidence-based, statistically-driven approach, the Mosaic Score can help predict a company’s momentum, market health and financial viability.

Companies such as Zoox, Shield AI, Zest Finance, Dynamic Yield, Appier, and CognitiveScale joined Afiniti in being recognized for their innovative technology in front of an audience of 400 senior innovation executives from around the world and news outlets including The Financial Times, CNBC, Reuters, Bloomberg and the Washington Post.

Afiniti’s Enterprise Behavioral Pairing™ algorithm analyzes and predicts the behavior of incoming callers in contact centers in order to pair them with the agents who are more likely to result in a successful interaction. The company operates throughout the world and has driven hundreds of millions of dollars in incremental revenue globally.

To date, Afiniti has over 150 deployments in major enterprises across a range of sectors, including telecommunications, insurance, financial services, hospitality and healthcare. On a daily basis, Afiniti technology pairs more than 400,000 calls. The technology continually learns and improves, analyzing millions of records every day to refine pairings. The company’s chief application today focuses on improving outcomes in contact centers, where the majority of person-to-person interactions currently occur.
