George Kipouros, AIconics Awards Curator said: “With over 100 entries from around the world, the third edition of The AIconics reflects the strength and progress of a rapidly expanding and evolving sector. Artificial Intelligence is now beginning to dominate conversations in the technology sphere, with business increasingly aware of the immense potential that AI brings.”
