2019 AWARD CATEGORIES

Technology Specific

Best Innovation in Intelligent Automation

Intelligent automation (IA)—the combination of artificial intelligence and automation—enabling companies to achieve unparalleled productivity and efficiency by dissecting and synthesising vast swarms of data to automate entire workflows and processes. Applications of IA range from ingesting and analysing textual data, to guiding autonomous robots and vehicles. If you’re developing IA solutions which businesses can use to streamline business and operational processes and enhance complex decision-making capabilities, then send your nomination for this award.

APPLY

Best Innovation in NLP

As many businesses look toward productivity and automation of roles and tasks, Natural Language Processing sits at the heart of the opportunity. Whether specifically focused on ‘understanding’, ‘generating’, or the end-to-end process itself – there is a great amount of potential for enterprises to adopt NLP into their organization, and this award champions the providers at the head of the curve.

APPLY

Best Innovation in AI Hardware

While the conversation around AI & ML solutions tends to focus on the software front, a comprehensive set of hardware support is essential in making the most of the AI revolution. With processing power a prerequisite of any AI advancement, it is imperative to recognise the framework on which nearly all AI functionality is conducted. If your company is involved with the production, supply or distribution of hardware which is enabling the advancement of AI then this award is to celebrate your achievement in making an AI-powered world possible.

APPLY

Best Innovation in Deep Learning

Is your business a pioneer in Deep Learning, helping to drive machine learning applications toward the true potential of AI? Deep Learning is recognised as one of the key pillars for advancing practical AI and is enabling exponential development of applications for real world businesses, in analysing data across image, text, and sound. This is your opportunity to highlight how and why you’re the driving force behind the opportunity it presents.

APPLY

Vertical Specific

Best Application of AI for Sales and Marketing

AI has the potential to comprehensively overhaul the relation between business and customer. Bespoke, personalised outreach and publicity will soon be the new norm in customer-focused sales & marketing operations. Service levels, CRM & CEM – often challenging areas on multiple fronts for large organisations – will see pivotal changes powered by AI solutions. This award celebrates the renaissance of the customer and business duality fuelled by the advent of intelligent solutions.

APPLY

Best Application of AI in Financial Services

Financial Services is wide open for AI adoption, and with investment levels to exceed $4.5 billion by 2025 (Tractica), competition is fierce to disrupt the sector and get ahead in the race for AI. Practical applications of AI have been most felt in transforming the customer experience and for the roboticization of regulatory tasks, but AI is fast on its way to augmenting and automating every corner of the industry. If you have a product or service that is set to transform the finance industry, than this award is for you.

APPLY

Best AI Application in Healthcare

Artificial intelligence is transforming the healthcare industry by improving diagnostics, predicting outcomes, and changing the way doctors think about providing care. Major organisations such as IBM are focusing their efforts on this industry, while new start-ups are forming frequently with the purpose of solving complicated healthcare problems. If your company is developing AI that revolutionises the way in which humans can care for each other, this award is for you!

APPLY

NEW | Best AI Application in Customer Service

‘’By 2020, experts predict that over 85% of all customer interactions will be handled in the absence of a human agent.”

Virtual Assistants, Chatbots, Sentiment Analysis, Emotion AI and Recommendation platforms are some of the ways AI is helping to improve the relationship between businesses and their customers. As we now live in the ‘age of the customer’ investment in a highly accurate, scalable and personable intelligent customer service platform is integral to building the best possible customer journey and experience. This award therefore celebrates the companies who are helping to progress the interactions between the buyer and seller and helping improve customer satisfaction.

APPLY

Eco-system Specific

Best Application of AI in the Enterprise

AI is revolutionising business productivity and efficiency across all industries. While only at the beginning of what is a wholly transformative journey, a significant number of practical AI applications are already available to enterprises across the globe. This flagship award category recognises the industry leaders putting forward the most comprehensive and effective solutions to the market – across any industry. Take the stage and show the world’s leading enterprises how AI will make them better in the future.

APPLY

Best AI Start-up

In such a fast-paced ecosystem, start-ups are emerging daily with fantastic innovations and technological breakthroughs across a range of AI technologies. The Best AI Start-Up award focuses on the business itself as well as the technology and is designed to raise the profile of those leading the field in both technology, product market fit, and scale-up potential.

APPLY

NEW | Best VC/Incubator/Accelerator for AI

From January 2015 to January 2018, the amount of AI start-ups increased by more than 200%. This huge upsurge which was only made possible due to a 4.5x increase in VC funding during the same time period meaning VC’s/Incubators/Accelerators allow for companies to have the appropriate infrastructure, knowledge and funding to thrive.

If you’ve launched a particular cohort of start-ups, had a successful exit or raised a significant fund, spring boarded a new initiative or helped develop a revolutionary product then this award will recognise your achievements. Whilst success in helping Start-ups is at the core of this award, promoting and celebrating companies who incorporate diversity, ethics and sustainability into their mission statements is a key influencer to victory.
