Explore the full 2022 list of Fast Company’s Most Inno­v­a­tive Com­pa­nies, 528 orga­ni­za­tions whose efforts are reshap­ing their busi­ness­es, indus­tries, and the broad­er cul­ture. We’ve select­ed the firms mak­ing the biggest impact with their ini­tia­tives across 52 cat­e­gories, includ­ing the most inno­v­a­tive media, design, and AI companies.

Today, just about every com­pa­ny uses data sci­ence to improve their busi­ness­es and prod­ucts. But the most inno­v­a­tive ones are har­ness­ing data to dri­ve their indus­tries forward—and devel­op solu­tions to some of the most press­ing social, sci­en­tif­ic, and tech­ni­cal prob­lems. Unlock­ing the pow­er of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and machine learn­ing tech­nolo­gies, these busi­ness­es have found new appli­ca­tions for data and are mak­ing strides across industries.

This year’s list of the most inno­v­a­tive com­pa­nies in data sci­ence includes Microsoft, which uses data about the way we work to inform new fea­tures for its Teams and work­place prod­ucts that offer a more humane approach to hybrid work. Urban­Foot­print has a sophis­ti­cat­ed data plat­form that can iden­ti­fy house­holds fac­ing food inse­cu­ri­ty or evic­tion, and help insti­tu­tions direct their aid more effec­tive­ly and effi­cient­ly. IPM​.ai and Sema4, mean­while, are putting their data analy­sis skills toward help­ing to deliv­er bet­ter health­care for patients. And Smarter Sort­ing uses data to deter­mine the tox­i­c­i­ty of prod­ucts with­out hav­ing to test on animals.
