C3.ai Makes List of World’s Most Innovative Tech Companies

For the third year in a row, CNBC has named C3.ai to its Disruptor 50 list of the most innovative companies that are transforming the industry landscape and disrupting status quo with revolutionary, scalable technology.

“While supporting our customers through their digital transformation journeys is a foremost priority, this recognition comes at a time when we are especially proud of the work we have accomplished to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. First, through a public-private partnership and the expedited funding of AI-driven COVID research; and second, through the creation of the C3.ai COVID-19 Data Lake, one of the world’s largest unified sources of public COVID-19 data,” said Thomas M. Siebel, CEO of C3.ai. “I cannot imagine a more important use of AI and our resources than to help alter the course of a global pandemic.”

Over the past year, C3.ai achieved substantial growth in bookings, added offices in the U.S. and Europe, and significantly expanded its customer portfolio across multiple industries.

The 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50 was selected by the CNBC editorial staff using a proprietary algorithm of quantitative and qualitative information submitted by more than 1,100 companies.

CNBC’s Disruptor 50 Advisory Council, a group of 66 leading thinkers in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship, weighted the quantitative criteria and provided additional analysis of qualitative information.
