Certified AI Thought-Leader (CAT-L) Ratings Database

What is this?

CAT-L is an innovative certification service that evaluates AI thought-leaders and assigns them a rating based on a comprehensive 50-point inspection developed by the expert team at Certified Artificial.

This page contains the complete database of all AI thought-leaders who have received a CAT-L certification, and their associated Bronze, Silver, Gold or "Do Not Recommend" ratings.

Please note that Certified Artificial reserves the right to proactively assign rankings. The appearance of an individual in this database does not indicate they personally requested this certification.

These rankings signal the following:

  • Gold: This AI thought-leader is widely recognized beyond the technical field and by our evaluation meets the industry standard for opining on aspects of the machine learning revolution.

  • Silver: This AI thought-leader is advancing a nuanced discussion of the broader social implications of the technology and has practical, hands-on experience in machine learning.

  • Bronze: This AI thought-leader has the sufficient - if not extensive - background to give generally reliable assessments of and counsel about the technology.

  • Do Not Recommend (DNR): Certified Artificial does not recommend this AI thought-leader, due to a lack of necessary background in the topic or by virtue of unfounded speculation on the topic.

These rankings are updated periodically. You can find out more about the CAT-L certification and request your own certification by visiting our services page. You can also download our Chrome extension to view live CAT-L ratings everywhere on the web.
