SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Expect Labs has been identified as one of 2014's 50 Smartest Companies in MIT Technology Review's annual list of the world's most innovative technology companies. Expect Labs has pioneered the field of anticipatory computing with its MindMeld App, and most recently, its MindMeld API: the world's first context-driven developer platform and cloud-based service.
The honorees are nominated by MIT Technology Review's editors, who look for companies that have demonstrated original and valuable technology over the last year, are bringing that technology to market at significant scale, and are clearly influencing their competitors. Expect Labs and the companies on the list represent the disruptive innovations most likely to change our lives.
Jason Pontin, publisher and editor in chief of MIT Technology Review, states, "At times it seems impossible to keep pace with important emerging technologies. This issue celebrates organizations at the forefront, displaying 'disruptive innovation' that will prove to surpass the competition, transform an industry, and change our lives."
"At Expect Labs we envision a future where computers are capable of proactively surfacing useful information in the right context," said Timothy Tuttle, Expect Labs' CEO and founder. "We're honored that MIT Technology Review included us in their list of 2014's 50 Smartest Companies."
Since coming out of stealth mode in 2012, Expect Labs has been widely recognized as a leader in the fast-emerging field of anticipatory computing and has received numerous accolades. Expect Labs was recognized by Gartner as one of their "Cool Vendors of 2013," and selected as a finalist for the 2013 CODiE Award for Best Mobile Device Application. Expect Labs' technology was awarded "Best in Show" at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show and was featured by Popular Science as one of the "Hottest Gadgets" of 2013. Expect Labs was also selected as a finalist at the 2012 TechCrunch Disrupt startup competition, the 2013 CES Mobile App Showdown, and the 2013 SXSW Innovative Technology Accelerator.
Expect Labs and the other honorees will be featured in the March/April edition of MIT Technology Review, published online today and available on newsstands worldwide starting March 4.
