Annual list highlights the most promising companies of tomorrow.

RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 12, 2019 – Pryon Inc., an artificial intelligence (AI) company focused on augmented intelligence for the enterprise, has made the annual CNBC Upstart 100 list of the brightest and most promising young companies. According to CNBC, “All of the 100 companies on the list have quickly become entrepreneurial success stories worth keeping an eye on.”

“Making the CNBC Upstart 100 is an honor because there is a history of calling attention to early-stage companies that become great,” said Igor Jablokov, CEO of Pryon. “I believe we have the experience, expertise, and backing to become an important leader in enterprise AI.”  

Pryon’s Augmented Intelligence for the New AI Era

In the years to come, AI, machine learning (ML), and natural language processing (NLP) will continue to change everything from transportation systems and entertainment delivery to medicine and farming. Pryon is bringing AI to work, allowing enterprise employees and customers to get the knowledge, actions, and decisions they need with speed and accuracy that isn’t possible in most companies today.

Typical enterprise employees are living with digital drudgery – struggling to find information to do their jobs and frustrated with the number of apps and steps it takes to get things done. Meanwhile, businesses feel pressure to acquire and use more data and tools than ever before to stay competitive. Employees are being held back just when companies need them to be smarter, more innovative, and more productive than ever. And enterprises that don’t have strategic AI on their digital transformation agenda risk being left behind.

“Augmented intelligence technologies from Pryon help companies mitigate these dangers – showing business leaders how to combine the strengths of humans and machines for truly transformative results. For example, allowing employees to read and understand more than humanly possible, conducting a kind of clairvoyant search across all types of data wherever it resides, and operating apps without touching them,” said Jablokov. “Pryon works with companies on the cultural shifts AI requires with a positive focus on how it can help all of us be > ourselves.”
