Percepto honored for achievements in remote inspection
Modi’in, Israel April 29th 2021. Percepto, pioneering autonomous inspection by industrial robotics today announced that they have been named to the 2021 CB Insights AI 100 List of Most Innovative Artificial Intelligence Startups for remote inspection. The fifth annual AI 100 ranking showcases the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world.
“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.”
“Percepto is honored to be the only company chosen in the remote inspection category,” said Dor Abuhasira, CEO and Co-founder, Percepto. “Percepto AIM software is ushering in a new era at Fortune 500 customers globally, using AI to build autonomous drones and provide data analysis to fully realize the potential of autonomous remote inspections. Percepto are proud to be leading this industry transformation”
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.
