Who Won the Women in AI Awards Last Year?


First prize in 2019's Women in AI Awards went to Goshaba CEO & Co-Founder, Camille Morvan. Goshaba's tagline is 'Hire better. Faster.'; and their recruitment solution not only sifts through high volumes of applications to find the 'needle in the haystack', but also uses gaming to analyze the cognitive traits of candidates.

First runner-up went to Priya Lakhani, Founder and CEO and Century Tech, and education solution "developed by an award-winning team of experienced teachers, neuroscientists and technologists... combining the latest research in learning science, artificial intelligence and neuroscience" to ensure practices are underpinned by evidence-based scientific and pedagogical techniques.

In third place: Francesca Fedeli's FightTheStroke.org, a movement to support tech that supports the cause of young stroke survivors with a disability of Infantile Cerebral Palsy.

They’re accepting applications until August 17th, so if you are or are working with a women founded or co-founded company in AI, click here to apply!
