How is the list
The 2021 edition of the list is 100% curated by the Hyperight editorial team
(Editor´s Choice). In the years to come the list will be open to nominations
by the Nordic data community (Community Choice). As a matter of fact,
every practitioner working with Data, Analytics and AI in the Nordics can
apply to be listed or nominate someone else. When curating the list we
take into account three main criteria:
Leadership and Innovation
Individuals who have shown leadership and innovation skills within their or many other organisations, demonstrating and advocating the importance and value of Data,
Advanced Analytics and AI.
Influence and Engagement
Engagement with the broader Data, Ana- lytics and AI industry is important. This can include being a member of an industry council, speaking at industry conferences or taking part in meet-ups, creating knowledge-sharing and collaboration activities, having published research or showcasing thought leadership through different channels.
In some small cases we have selected Nordic speakers whose presentations have been received with great en- thusiasm by the delegates attending Hyperight events.
Community Choice nominated individuals are subject to selection by the Hyperight editors based on the above criteria. Nomination entries are free of charge and confidential. You can apply or nominate a colleague at www.hyperight.com/Nordic100. Individuals listed in the Hyperight Nordic 100, will have the possibility to be included in the voting list for the Hyperight 2021 Awards and win a reward in one of the 9 categories by Hyperight and its partners revealed at the 6th edition of the Data Innovation Summit scheduled for 13th to 15th of October 2021.
