Cambridge MA – June 21st, 2018 – Gamalon, creator of next-generation artificial intelligence technology for natural language, was selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers, a group of the world’s most innovative companies. Using Gamalon’s Idea Learning AI platform, enterprises can listen, learn and respond to customer messages at scale. Gamalon enables simultaneous, one-on-one personal conversations with millions of people.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers community are early-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society. The 61 technology pioneers that made it to the final selection are active in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, biotechnology, blockchain, cybersecurity, the internet of things, and other pioneering technologies.
“It’s an honor to have Gamalon named as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum,” said founder and CEO Ben Vigoda. “Gamalon’s mission is to accelerate human understanding by combining human and machine learning. The fundamental problem we’re tackling is to enable humans to teach machines and learn from them through an exchange of ideas rather than just data. This recognition inspires us to continue to innovate and solve this problem.”
“We welcome Gamalon in this diverse group of technology pioneers,” says Fulvia Montresor, Head of Technology Pioneers at the World Economic Forum. “Gamalon and its fellow pioneers are front and centre in shaping the ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution and we believe they will be transforming society and industry in a positive way in the years to come.”
The Technology Pioneers were selected by a selection committee of more than 60 academics, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and corporate executives. The committee based its decisions on criteria including innovation, potential impact and leadership. Past recipients include Airbnb, Google, Kickstarter, Mozilla, Palantir Technologies, Spotify, TransferWise, Twitter and Wikimedia.
