The 2023 List!

An independent list fully curated by the Hyperight editorial team

The list features Data, Advanced Analytics & AI practitioners or individuals strongly dedicated to supporting the data community and accelerating the Data and AI innovation capabilities in the Nordic region. They are Data and AI practitioners working in midsize companies or enterprises, academics, individuals promoting ideas or actions to increase the maturity in the area, experts in vendor organisations or agencies, governmental initiative representatives, spokesmen, or simply innovators developing new ways of working, new products or services. The Hyperight Nordic 100 In Data, Analytics and AI 2023 is divided into 9 categories depending on the area that practitioners are working in or supporting: Data Management, Business Analytics and BI, Data Science, Machine Learning, AI, Data Engineering, Applied Analytics, Innovation and finally Ethics, Diversity and Regulation.

The List changes every year with 100 new names, and it is designed to recognize and celebrate the work and the efforts of exceptional individuals in our network who are driving the Data and AI innovation forward, selflessly sharing their knowledge with others, and inspiring young generations and other practitioners to follow the same path. The list should not be, in any way, perceived as a competition or a ranking list.

    How is the list

    The 2023 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, Analytics 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.


    Delegate Feedback

    In some small cases we have selected Nordic speakers whose presentations have been received with great enthusiasm 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 on the button below.
    The list will be made public and presented during the 2022 edition of the annual Data Innovation summit, scheduled for 5th and 6th of May 2022.
