RALEIGH – Diveplane, the company keeping the humanity in artificial intelligence (AI), recently announced its recognition in four different 2021 Gartner Hype Cycle reports: Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, 2021[1]; Hype Cycle for Data Science and Machine Learning, 2021[2]; Hype Cycle for Enterprise Information Management, 2021[3] and Hype Cycle for Artificial Intelligence, 2021[4].

This marks the second year in a row that Diveplane has been recognized in four different Hype Cycle reports, and the first time the company has been included in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for AI Trust, Risk and Security Management [5], which was published earlier this month.

“In my opinion, our continued recognition in various Gartner Hype Cycles and other reports is an excellent confirmation of what we’ve always believed – this technology, just at the outset of its journey, has incredible potential,” said Dr. Mike Capps, Diveplane’s Chief Executive Officer. “Synthetic data has a number of use cases for different industries, and we can’t wait to see how the recognition of this fact spreads.”

According to the Hype Cycle report for Emerging Technologies, 2021, the report “highlights emerging technologies that will significantly affect business and society over the next two to 10 years. It includes technologies that accelerate growth, engineer trust and bring order to the chaos of a changing world by sculpting change.” With more and more consumers and companies concerned with the safety and privacy surrounding their data, keeping it secure while maintaining its value will be an incredibly important aspect of business moving forward.

“We believe that Gartner is at the forefront of analyzing the industry trends to pinpoint the value new, disruptive technologies can bring to the market. We consider our inclusion in these multiple reports a validation of our belief that synthetic data has a massive part to play to preserve privacy, while at the same time allowing data knowledge to be used ethically,” added Diveplane Chief Commercial Officer Alan Cross.
