We exist to bring transparency to the adoption of artificial intelligence in business by creating the global standard benchmark of AI maturity.

We aim to cover more than 1,000 companies across multiple sectors to identify best practice and accelerate learning across sectors.


By creating rigorous and independent indices, we help companies transform faster, safely, and sustainably, minimising the harms of AI and maximising the commercial, economic and societal opportunities.

AI has become an existential issue for business
And yet, visibility into the AI capabilities of major companies is lacking
We believe transparency is critical to harness the value of AI for commercial - and societal - gain
We hope the Evident AI Index will not only be a tool used by senior management, investors and suppliers to accelerate corporate AI adoption, but also for society as a whole.


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.

If you believe the same, take a look at our open roles.
