From ride shares to smart power grids and from healthcare to our online lives, AI is being propelled out of labs and into our daily lives. Microsoft is betting that conservation-focused AI can save our planet, while Facebook sees it as a silver bullet for rooting out harmful content.

We partnered with Quid, a San Francisco-based startup, whose platform can read millions of news articles, blog posts, company profiles, and patents — and offer immediate insight by organizing that content visually. From its global dataset of 1.8 million companies, Quid classified companies that mentioned a specific focus in "Artificial Intelligence" or "Deep Learning."
