AudioEye®, Inc., the creators of the Audio Internet™, the patented audio browsing and automated publishing technology, announced that AudioEye was voted a gold winner for innovation in the category of "Lifestyle and Social Impact; Quality of Life" at an April 25 event at Navy Pier in Chicago. AudioEye CEO Nathaniel Bradley joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world's most recognized companies to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all of the 2013 Edison Award winners. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847 - 1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.
"Our judges recognized AudioEye as a true innovator out of the many products in its category," said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards. The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards™ was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical. One of the evening's many highlights was the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated. The award honors innovation leaders and business executives who have made a significant and lasting contribution to innovation throughout their careers. The Edison Achievement Award serves as inspiration to future innovators and to the world at large.
