The World Economic Forum on Thursday released its 2018 list of technology pioneers. Of the 61 early-stage companies that made the cut, the WEF recognized eight Israeli startups, including low-cost LiDAR startup Innoviz Technologies Ltd., Precognize Inc., acquired earlier this month by Samson AG, and Vayyar Imaging Ltd., which develops sensors that can “see” through solid objects.
The WEF then works to incorporates technologies by these innovative companies into its programs and initiatives. Google, Airbnb, Rethink Robotics, Spotify, and Twitter are some of the companies the WEF recognized since 2000.
