Clearview AI, developer of revolutionary facial recognition search engine technology for law enforcement, has been named to TIME’s inaugural list of the 100 most influential companies.
TIME revealed the first-ever “TIME100 Most Influential Companies,” a new list—and an expansion of the annual TIME100 franchise—that highlights 100 businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world.
Hoan Ton-That, Clearview AI Co-Founder and CEO, said: “We are honored to have been included on this list of influential and innovative companies.”
To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations across every sector—including health care, entertainment, transportation, technology and more—from its global network of editors and correspondents, as well as from industry experts. Each company was then evaluated on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition and success.
The full TIME100 Companies list will be featured in the May 10, 2021 double issue of TIME, available on newsstands on Friday, April 30.
