It recognizes not only pioneers in their fields, but also those committed to the ethical development and responsible use of AI technologies.

The TIME100 AI issue presents a global cover illustrated by Neil Jamieson for TIME, featuring 28 prominent figures from the inaugural list. These include Sam Altman of OpenAI, Dario and Daniela Amodei of Anthropic, Demis Hassabis of Google DeepMind, and a number of other prominent individuals at the forefront of AI innovation.

The TIME100 AI 2023 list includes 43 CEOs, founders, and co-founders who have left an indelible mark on the AI landscape. Among these visionaries are notable names such as Elon Musk of xAI, Sam Altman of OpenAI, Andrew Hopkins of Exscientia, Nancy Xu of Moonhub, Kate Kallot of Amini, Pelonomi Moiloa of Lelapa AI, Jack Clark of Anthropic, Raquel Urtasan of Waabi, Aidan Gomez of Cohere, and many others.

This year's list is also marked by gender diversity, with 41 women and nonbinary individuals making significant contributions to the AI field. Notable mentions include Rumman Chowdhury, CEO, and co-founder of Humane Intelligence; cognitive scientist Abeba Birhane; Lila Ibrahim, COO of Google DeepMind; Sandra Rivera, General Manager of the Data Center and AI Group at Intel; Margaret Mitchell, chief AI ethics scientist at Hugging Face; Fei-Fei Li, Stanford professor; artists Linda Dounia Rebeiz and Kelly McKernan; and numerous others who are shaping AI with their unique perspectives.

Among the TIME100 AI list, there is a remarkable age range, with 18-year-old Sneha Revanur standing as the youngest honoree. On the other end of the spectrum, 76-year-old Geoffrey Hinton, a key figure in AI development, who recently left his position at Google to voice concerns about the technology's risks, also finds his place on the list.

The TIME100 AI is not limited to AI practitioners but also encompasses policymakers and government officials who are instrumental in shaping AI's ethical and regulatory framework. Notable mentions include Omar Al Olama, the UAE's minister for artificial intelligence, U.S. representatives Anna Eshoo and Ted Lieu, Audrey Tang, Taiwan's minister of digital affairs, and Ian Hogarth, chair of the U.K.'s AI Foundation Model Taskforce.

The list further acknowledges scientists, professors, researchers, and activists who are actively engaged in AI ethics, bias, and safety.

In a surprising inclusion, Rootport, the anonymous author of a Japanese manga, known for producing the first completely AI-illustrated Japanese comic using Midjourney, also makes an appearance on the list.

Finally, the TIME100 AI celebrates creatives who explore AI's impact on society and experiment with the technology in their respective fields. This group includes musician Grimes, science fiction writer Ted Chiang, Charlie Brooker, the creator of Black Mirror, filmmaker Lilly Wachowski, musician Holly Herndon, artists Linda Dounia Rebeiz and Sougwen Chung, and many other creative minds exploring the intersections of AI and the arts.
