Minneapolis’ Black-Owned Business Community On Systemic Inequality | Forbes

Published

on

On May 26th, protests broke out in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota in response to the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police officers. The explosion of weeks-long protests pointed to deeper issues in Minneapolis that predated Floyd’s death, one of which was the unequal access Minneapolis’ Black business community faced to access and capital. Decades of redlining and racist housing covenants have deprived Black Minnesotans of the ability to start and sustain small businesses in a city that has seen yawning wealth and home ownership gaps.

We spoke to three Minnesotans about their experiences as Black business owners in Minneapolis, what challenges they’ve faced, their views on the George Floyd protests and what solutions they think could strengthen the Black business community in their city.

America’s Most Promising Artificial Intelligence Companies | Forbes

Published

on

By

Artificial intelligence is beginning to be usefully deployed in almost every industry from customer call centers and finance to drug research. Yet the field is also plagued by relentless hype, opaque jargon and esoteric technology making it difficult for outsiders identify the most interesting companies.

To cut through the spin, Forbes partnered with venture firms Sequoia Capital and Meritech Capital to create our second annual AI 50, a list of private, U.S.-based companies that are using artificial intelligence in meaningful business-oriented ways. To be included, companies had to be privately-held and focused on techniques like machine learning (where systems learn from data to improve on tasks), natural language processing (which enables programs to “understand” written or spoken language), or computer vision (which relates to how machines “see”).

The list was compiled through a submission process open to any AI company in the U.S. The application asked companies to provide details on their technology, business model, customers and financials like funding, valuation and revenue history (companies had the option to submit information confidentially, to encourage greater transparency). In total, Forbes received about 400 entries. From there, our VC partners applied an algorithm to identify the 100 with the highest quantitative scores and then a panel of eight expert AI judges identified the 50 most compelling companies.
