The 3rd Annual London show was presented in partnership with Microsoft, sponsored by Infosys and Cloud Factory and supported by TechUK , XPrize & Imperial College London.

The AIconics has now returned for the 6th rendition in San Francisco on September 18, 2018 at the Palace Hotel – so please do get applying!

You would join an elite group of previous winners – including HCL Technologies, IBM Watson, Gluru, PwC, Purestorage, TCS, IAG, Artificial Solutions and x.ai to name just a few. Winning and shortlisted companies will also be invited to join us at the AI Summit San Francisco, the leading and biggest AI for Enterprise Event taking place the following day at the Palace of the Fine Arts.

NEW FOR 2018

The AIconics have grown in size and stature in 2018 as AI innovators are celebrated in two iconic landmarks, Kenginston Palace in London and The Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

The 6th rendition of the landmark show will allow companies the chance to showcase their thought leadership in the AI Space by sponsoring an award, inviting their clients to the show, and having a private dinner reception on site.

2018 AWARD CATEGORIES

Best Application of AI for Sales & 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 NOW

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 NOW

Best Innovation in RPA

Is your company a global supplier of clerical process automation technology based on the notion of software robots? Are you the foremost supplier of AI workers out there? Is your software-robot solution sufficiently mature, resilient, scalable and reliable? With huge cost and efficiency savings arising from its adoption, RPA can radically improve the speed and effectiveness of business processes. This award will be presented to the most ‘talented’ software-worker out there!

APPLY NOW

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 NOW

Best Intelligent Assistant Innovation

Virtual assistants and advanced voice/text recognition capabilities are changing the enterprise landscape at an exponential rate. They can enable greater productivity, accuracy, and even a more personal ‘human’ touch to communications which otherwise would not get the desired attention. This award reveals the brilliance in the recent advancements in the space.

APPLY NOW

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 NOW

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 NOW

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 NOW

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 NOW

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 NOW

NEW | Greatest contribution to ethics, gender equality and diversity in AI

Artificial Intelligence has the power to transform and enhance all aspects of our society. However, there is a danger that the ‘rules’ for AI and the data used to train it, may embody the inequalities inherent to our world. AI needs to go beyond sexism; discrimination; and social bias; to wave the flag for gender parity and inclusivity. This award appraises companies on how actively engaged they are in their commitment to equality and diversity. Showcase how your AI technology; ML algorithms; enterprise AI case-study; white paper; or best practises, ensures AI moves beyond the imbalance and injustices facing society today.
