Deloitte today announced that Dave Kuder, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and leader of Deloitte’s U.S. AI insights and engagement market offering, is the winner of the this year’s AI Innovator of the Year award from AI Business. Kuder was recognized for his work in serving as a trusted advisor for clients on AI transformation efforts; empowering AI talent with curated learning and development curriculum, and enabling new Conversational AI and AI Foundry businesses.
The award was announced Dec. 9 as part of the 2020 Virtual AI Summit New York and recognizes a leader who leveraged AI innovation to revolutionize the way we work, live and interact with society. The 12 finalists included individuals from leading organizations who exhibited outstanding performance, drove meaningful change, and spearheaded innovative projects within the field of AI. The winner was chosen through an online poll of Kuder’s peers in the AI industry.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen the power and benefits of leveraging AI in business — and in our everyday lives — as we adapt to working and living in new ways,” said Kuder. “I’m honored to be recognized by my peers and AI Business and am proud to work alongside my colleagues at Deloitte, who inspire new innovation and offer experienced counsel to our clients each day. Our team is agile and quick-minded, which has undoubtedly helped us remain at the forefront of the AI field during the most disruptive year yet.”
