Forbes Recognizes Krisp as One of America’s Most Promising AI Companies
The American University of Armenia (AUA) is proud to share the Forbes article announcing its second annual AI 50, a list of private, U.S.-based companies that are using artificial intelligence in meaningful, business-oriented ways. In total, Forbes received about 400 entries from companies hoping to make the list. Among the final 50 most compelling companies was Krisp, a noise-reduction app that was co-founded by AUA Alumnus Artavazd Minasyan (MBA ’12). Krisp’s software has been especially critical in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people switch to remote work and increasingly depend on reduced background noise in calls.
Founded in 1991, the American University of Armenia (AUA) is a private, independent university located in Yerevan, Armenia, affiliated with the University of California, and accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission in the United States.
