The nominations for the world-renowned AIconics awards have been announced today in San Francisco, USA. Eleven awards celebrating the most innovating AI companies will be awarded in a prestigious ceremony to be held at The Gold Room at The Palace Hotel on the 18th September 2018 among an elite audience of 200 guests.

Now in their third edition, the 2018 awards have seen a tripling of nominations for this year from 16 countries, with 470 different entries across eleven categories.

The AIconics
are the world’s only independently-judged awards celebrating the drive, innovation and hard work in the international AI Community. A panel of 11 judges from around the world alongside the co-founders of AI Business thoroughly reviewed competitive entries from the foremost innovators in the AI Space.

Among the most exciting new awards to be handed out this year is the ‘Greatest contribution to ethics, gender equality and diversity in AI’ with 6 nominations competing in a challenging journey.

Judged by a panel of world-class AI experts, including senior leaders from VCs, academia and enterprise end-users, the awards provide innovators with the platform to showcase themselves to their peers as well as millions of enterprise end-users.

The AIconics are organised by AI Business and are a highlight of the upcoming AI Summit San Francisco, the world’s largest AI event for business that brings together 3000 delegates at the Palace of Fine Arts on the 19th and 20th September 2018.

Edward Beecham, AIconics Awards Curator said: “With over 300 entries from around the world, the 3rd Annual Edition of The AIconics reflect the strength and progress of a rapidly expanding and evolving sector. Artificial Intelligence is now beginning to dominate conversations in the technology sphere, with businesses increasingly aware of the immense potential that AI brings.”
