So what is the AI Innovator of the Year Award?

The AI Innovator of the Year Award is a fundamental part of the AIconics Awards. By establishing a unique award category for leading professionals in the field of AI evolution – we will bring to the fore and raise the profile of those who are making a change through AI initiatives.

The award will showcase projects that have made a significant impact on how businesses operate and run. This year for the first time we have opened the award up to recognise the distinct skills and experience of those in AI tech development and those in AI implementation.
