AI Utah Announces Inaugural AI Utah 100 List
Today, AI Utah, in collaboration with the Codebase, Maschoff Brennan, Domo, Weave, Phi, Women Tech Council, Utah Business, Forge Utah Foundation, Techbuzz, Method, Goal, Mercato, and Silicon Slopes, announced its inaugural AI Utah 100 list, recognizing the top 100 individuals that are leading the field of artificial intelligence in Utah.
AI 100 honorees were honored at an exclusive reception at Weave’s headquarters in Lehi, Utah. Entertainment was provided by a convincing Star Wars Cantina Bar quartet.
“Over the past year we’ve really seen AI take a stronghold in the technology industry as well as its impact in businesses globally,” said Jon Bradshaw and Gunjan Saini Bradshaw, the couple who co-founded both AI Utah and Codebase. “Utah is one of the driving forces of adoption of AI with companies developing and implementing the technology to groundbreaking research to industry-transforming applications. This list makes up those at the forefront of this digital transformation who are advancing AI’s impact here in Utah.”
The list of honorees were nominated by their peers and evaluated by a panel of notable industry experts whose collective expertise provided a comprehensive and fair evaluation of the candidates focusing on research excellence, technological innovation, real-world impact, and community engagement.
Honorees were placed in one of three categories—Futurist, Builder, and Integrator—that highlight their role in building Utah’s AI ecosystem.
