I’m just not a believer that you can have “enterprise” ai. And why would a company want a generic solution vs a differentiated one. 40% of revs with one customer? Yikes!

@mzaz70 AI is data dependent, and every company has its own data. This means that a generic solution would yield different results for different companies. This is the principle on which AI is operating.
Every time I read something positive about this company, the stock price actually goes DOWN shortly after. Too late for me. Save yourselves the heartbreak. I am very unhappy that I bought this crap.

Roughly $9 of the share price is cash on hand. Minimum debt. How long before they begin to turn a profit ? 2023? Thank you for the article, I’m trying to learn more about the company since it’s dropped in price.

They target transactions above $500,000 which can make it difficult to land new logos because AI applications won't begin to generate an ROI for many months as they have to collect enough data to function as intended. C3.ai competes in a crowded space with many competitors.

@Pete Palmer I agree. Their products are differentiated but in the tech space that only lasts so long. If the continue to court customers they'll be a buyout candidate at some point but eventually I think they'll get squeezed by bigger names as the market becomes more lucrative.
