The 2023 list features Data, Advanced Analytics & AI practitioners or individuals dedicated to supporting the data community and accelerating the Data and AI innovation capabilities in the Nordic region.
The 2023 List
An independent list fully curated by the Hyperight editorial team
The list features Data, Advanced Analytics & AI practitioners or individuals 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 mid-size companies or enterprises, academics, individuals promoting ideas or actions to increase the maturity in the area, experts in vendor organizations 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 Ethics, Diversity and Regulation.
The List, that changes every year by introducing 100 new names, is designed to recognize and celebrate the work and 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.

Curation of 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). 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 organizations, 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.
On rare occasions, we select 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.
