Conducted by AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, the award program identifies the top technologies and products in the global artificial intelligence (AI) market today.

Unprecedented volatility and ongoing economic uncertainty have forced companies to look more closely at how they can achieve complete data visibility and, most importantly, turn their massive loads of information into meaningful insights to make intelligent decisions about their direct material sourcing.
