Chalk and Databricks selected as leading Machine Learning / AI Development Platforms in 2024 CB Insights AI 100

April 2, 2024

I’m excited to share that today, CB Insights named Chalk to their eighth-annual list of the world’s 100 most promising AI companies. We’re thrilled to be recognized alongside Databricks as one of the leading Machine Learning and AI Development platforms globally.

From the beginning, we set out to empower ML teams with a best-in-class developer experience which makes this recognition especially meaningful to us. With Chalk, developers have the necessary building blocks to ship production-grade machine learning and generative AI – a compute engine, an LLM toolchain, a feature store, integrated monitoring, and branches for experimentation.

We’ve been excited to see industry leaders like Vital, Ramp, Melio and Whatnot use Chalk to power a wide range of complex predictions: detecting disease in real-time, fighting fraud, and transforming e-commerce. Across the board, companies leverage Chalk for critical use cases that require integrating the freshest possible data to make real-time decisions – a place where incumbent tooling is extremely limited.

CB Insights shared with us that they selected winners based on team strength, investor strength, industry partnerships, patent activity, CB Insights’ data on deal activity, and proprietary Mosaic Scores. CB’s research team also conducted interviews with software buyers and reviewed hundreds of Analyst Briefings. We’re really honored to be included here.

“AI is taking off at lightning speed, and it’s not just big tech companies at the forefront of it,” said Deepashri Varadharajan, director of AI research at CB Insights. “Our AI 100 winners…are pushing the boundaries of AI in everything from game development and battery design to agentic AI systems.”

We’d love to hear about what you’re building next with data and see if there are some ways we might be of help. Please reach out to request an account here.
