Winners of the Rakuten Technology & Innovation Award 2017
Tokyo, October 11, 2017 - Rakuten, Inc. announced the winners of the Rakuten Technology & Innovation Award 2017, to be presented at this awards ceremony.
The Rakuten Technology & Innovation Award is given to individuals, organizations or products in recognition of achievements that contribute to the evolution of society through cutting-edge innovation. Gold and silver prizes are awarded for the most revolutionary developments in technology and the societal contributions they have made in recent years, while Concept Prizes are awarded according to the theme of each year’s conference.*
The theme for this year is “Head, Hands, and Heart.Head represents AI and big data, while Hands represents IoT, robotics and devices, and Heart represents people and education. Concept Prizes will be awarded to the most outstanding individuals in each area. 
Until 2016, the award was simply called the “Rakuten Technology Award,” but this year it has been renamed as the “Rakuten Technology & Innovation Award.” Our corporate philosophy is to empower people and society through innovation. Based on the belief that by continuing to produce innovation, we can reach beyond the boundaries of the company, support the realization of people’s ambitions and deliver happiness and joy worldwide, we have changed the award’s name and criteria to place more emphasis on innovation.
Through initiatives such as this award, Rakuten continues to boost awareness of the importance of innovation that contributes to the evolution of society and the development of the Japanese economy.
*This year there is no group prize.
