Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards


Artificial Intelligence is set to transform nearly every aspect of our lives and culture. As more and more companies build new tools, launch new services or deploy the AI of strategic vendors, it is important to recognize the truly unique solutions and how they impact the market.

The inaugural Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards will recognize those organizations, products and people who bring AI to life and apply it to solve real problems. Awards will be given out for excellence in one of the four major types of AI including Reactive Machines, Limited Memory , Theory of Mind, and Self-Awareness.
