The World Economic Forum today announced its list of 56 companies selected as Technology Pioneers, and this year’s class demonstrates the growing embrace of artificial intelligence and machine learning across a broad range of sectors.

Of those selected, at least 20 companies say they are using AI or machine learning in some fashion to tackle challenges in fields such as adtech, smart cities, cleantech, supply chain, manufacturing, cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles and drones.

While there is still plenty of skepticism about how much impact these technologies are having, the Technology Pioneers offer some indication of the progress being made in finding practical applications for these tools.
