2020 AWARD CATEGORIES
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The scope of AI in telecommunications is quickly expanding – communication service providers (CSPs) are turning to ML, NLP, RPA and more to optimize across the product from customer service and network infrastructure to labour-intensive back-end processes. Whether you’re a solution provider with a targeted industry application of your product, or a CSP looking to showcase your leadership in AI development and/or implementation, this award recognizes the leading projects that are driving telco innovation.
AI implementation in manufacturing is at an inflection point. The huge swathes of data owned by industrial organisations is providing AI and machine learning adopters with limitless opportunities to deliver new products, new business models, and greater insights into their business. This brand-new award will celebrate manufacturers and solution providers setting the standard in predictive, efficient, and intelligent manufacturing.
AI is revolutionising business productivity and efficiency across all industries and investment is at an all-time high. As companies increasingly devote resource to R&D labs and expand their technical teams, in-house AI projects are moving quicker than ever from ideation to implementation. Exclusively open to enterprises, this award category recognises the leading companies building and applying the most innovative and effective AI solutions – in any industry.
In such a fast-paced ecosystem, start-ups are emerging daily with fantastic innovations and technological breakthroughs across a range of AI technologies.
