The 10 Coolest Machine-Learning And AI Startups Of 2018 (So Far)


CEO: Andy Byrne

Clari's founders have a track record of solving complex problems with machine learning, having cut their teeth in that space with a previous venture that served the legal market.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based startup infuses AI into the sales process, with a layer that sits on top of Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics to deliver predictive and prescriptive insight to sales reps.

Clari analyzes sales data going back two years, then incorporates more data from Office 365, Gmail Exchange, file-sharing services and calendars. The platform compares deals, looks at sales histories, reveals risks, and recommends actions to help reps be more productive and close deals faster.

The company plans to progress beyond sales enablement with its technology.
