The list has become an important recognition among startups, in industry, and in academia. Candidates are nominated online or by an editor. A panel of judges—experts in different fields, who may be past winners themselves—assess the candidates, seeking a mixture of individuals that represents current trends in technology and the diversity of innovation around the globe.

"Over the years, we've had success in choosing women and men whose innovations and companies have been profoundly influential on the direction of human affairs," says editor in chief and publisher Jason Pontin. "Previous winners include Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the cofounders of Google; Mark Zuckerberg, the cofounder of Facebook; Jonathan Ive, the chief designer of Apple; and David Karp, the creator of Tumblr. We're proud of our selections and the variety of achievements they celebrate."

This year's honorees will be featured online at technologyreview.com starting today, and in the September/October print magazine, which hits newsstands worldwide on September 3. They will appear in person at the upcoming EmTech MIT conference from October 9–11 in Cambridge, Massachusetts (http://www.emtechmit.com).
