F50, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, today announced the Future 50 A.I. list of most promising North American startups from the United States and Canada.

- Financial Services
- Oil & Gas
- Transportation and Logistics
- Software Services
“We’re excited to announce F50’s Future 50 A.I. list that include the most promising and fundable North American startups in artificial intelligence,” said David Cao, Founding Partner of F50 Ventures & CEO of F50. “The Future 50 include a wide variety of great companies ranging from manufacturing robots to service robots to drones to sensors, chatbots and personal assistants to developers of medical diagnostic tools to fraud prevention platforms and more.”
F50 used several criteria to narrow down the selection to identify the top 50 A.I. startups. The Future 50 have raised between $2M and $50M of capital, have completed up to a Series C of financing, and have prominent investors backing them. To evaluate, F50 particularly focused on the companies demonstrating the most solid business models, advantages over its competition, potential to disrupt in its industry, demonstrated ability for global expansion, and most importantly, these companies have a strong and talented team leading.
F50 will host the cross-border venture capital summit, the Global Capital Summit 2016, on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at Stanford University, which will feature several companies on the Future 50 A.I. list. Registration is currently open for the summit at http://f50.io/gcs16.
