The Forbes AI 50 list highlights the most promising private companies in the U.S. and Canada using artificial intelligence in meaningful ways and demonstrating real business potential from doing so. They span industries including construction, manufacturing, healthcare, business and customer services, transportation, cybersecurity, finance and maritime logistics.

Finalists were culled through a submission process that asked approximately 700 companies to provide details on their use of AI-enabled technology, business model, customers and financials including fundraising, valuation and revenue history (companies had the option to submit information confidentially, to encourage greater transparency). Forbes received nearly 400 submissions by the deadline.

From there, Konstantine Buhler and our data partner Sequoia Capital, with assistance from Meritech Capital, crunched the numbers and ranked companies based on metrics such as revenue gains, customer statistics, historical funding and valuation. A panel of expert AI judges evaluated 100 finalists to find the 50 most compelling companies. (They were precluded from judging applicants in which they might have a vested interest.) In addition to identifying companies that show traction and financial promise, the list is on the lookout for companies finding novel uses for AI and that prioritize diverse teams. That’s crucial as problems arise in the absence of diversity.

In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid for the first time, a team of explorers, photographers, and filmmakers spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snake-laden water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to sometimes nausea-inducing heights. They came away with a startling new discovery - and an even deeper love for Florida's wildest wetlands - revelations that may help to conserve both the endangered orchid and its shrinking home.

‘Thai Country Living’ <br />
อยู่บ้านนอก⁠<br />
<br />
‘Thai Country Living’ is about the special way of life in Thailand’s north east Isaan region. A place which transports you to a timeless world far away from modern Bangkok. Friendship, family, community, pride - and celebration after a hard days work - are the rhythms that make the village tick. <br />
<br />
The film shares the life of Suman - a farmer and craftsman dedicated to the traditional ways of country living. Suman is an important part of village life - with the instruments he makes being essential in celebrations, get togethers, birthdays and drinking sessions. <br />
<br />
In a time when global culture is slowly eroding unique traditions, we wanted to celebrate a simpler and more authentic way of life we found in Suman’s peaceful and mediative world.<br />
<br />
Full of energy and human warmth - this film is a thank-you to all the amazing Thai folks that have introduced us to their culture in the most welcoming and warming of ways - through good food, traditional music, friendship… and whiskey.<br />
