Why we exist

Businesses worldwide are ratcheting up AI investment. Those that race ahead will challenge their rivals on growth, productivity, and financial performance—and those that fall behind risk irrelevance in a rapidly changing marketplace.

And yet, visibility into the AI capabilities of major companies is lacking. There is no accurate mechanism for benchmarking AI progress – no reference by which leaders can track and monitor their progress against the wider market.

We created Evident to cut through the hype, and increase transparency around the complexities of commercial AI adoption. We believe transparency is critical to harnessing the value of AI.

By showcasing best practice, we aim to help companies transform faster (and safely), minimising the harms of AI, while maximising the commercial, economic, and societal opportunities.

We are a fast-growing team of data scientists, index builders, AI researchers and analysts. We believe AI is the most transformative technology of our lifetime and presents a game-changing opportunity for business and society, but also carries risks. We believe in the power of data, the importance of measuring what matters, and that rankings ultimately drive behavioural change.
