Meet the Contenders of the 7th A.I. Startup Battle in Boston!

PAPIs ’17, the 4th International Conference on Predictive Applications and APIs, is a series of annual events where experts come discuss new developments, opportunities and challenges in real-world Machine Learning. This year, PAPIs ’17 returns to Boston, on October 24-25, 2017, and will host the 7th Edition of our AI Startup Battles (Oct. 24).

The audience, mainly decision makers and developers interested in the latest technology to build real-world intelligent applications, will witness the power of PreSeries, a predictive application that provides fact-based insights as well as many other investments and traction related metrics to help investors foresee which companies warrant a potential investment. PreSeries predictive models are trained with a diverse set of public and private data on more than 370,000 companies worldwide. On the 24th, after the startup pitches in the morning (schedule), our PreSeries A.I. will engage in a Q&A session with the 4 contenders through a voice-enabled device present on stage. It will then score and rank the startups. No human interference will occur during the scoring process, only PreSeries’ algorithms will be in charge of selecting the winner.

Meet the contenders!

At this point, you may be wondering who will be competing in the battle, so let’s get to know the contenders.


Klarity builds software that automatically reviews sales contracts (NDAs, Beta, MSA/SLA agmts), so lawyers don’t need to be involved. We have completed the first module that uses Natural Language Processing to analyze NDAs and provides the user with (1) an overall risk profile, (2) a list of clauses present and non-present with individual risk profile attached to each clause (green, yellow, red), and (3) detailed analysis of the implications of a clause to the business + actionable insights that help renegotiate the agreement. Our goal is to expand to other contract types and industry verticals, and eventually automate all contractual work.
