IBM's Harriet Green Named One of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business

By Ken Briodagh June 15, 2017

In a recent announcement, IBM has congratulated its own Harriet Green, General Manager, Watson Customer Engagement, Watson Internet of Things and Education, for being named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business for 2017. The annual list honors an influential and diverse group of leading thinkers from a vast range of global industries, from tech and design to entertainment, media, government and not-for-profit, healthcare, and food.

Green is driving growth in IBM's high priority and key growth initiatives, the company said. Across the business units she leads, Green is helping usher in a new era of cognitive business, helping clients unlock value in new insights from the massive amount of data they generate each day.

In the Most Creative People list, Harriet is recognized for “alerting businesses to Watson's potential.”

“I don't much believe in artificial intelligence,” said Green, who is one of the executives helping to run IBM's AI platform. “I believe in augmented intelligence. With Watson, we can augment capabilities that clients already have.”

Introduced in 2009, the Most Creative People list is one of Fast Company's most esteemed franchises. Each year, the magazine's editors present an all-new list of 100 chosen according to a proprietary methodology—honorees can't repeat and anyone previously profiled in the print magazine is excluded. The resulting group represents highly accomplished, dynamic individuals whose work and ideas are driving the world forward. This year's honorees join the expanding community of Fast Company's Most Creative People 1000. 

“Our editors scour the globe to identify the newest additions to the Most Creative People list. Each of the individuals we are spotlighting are making a sizable impact on business. I am truly awed and inspired by their achievements,” said Robert Safian, Editor, Fast Company, in the IBM release.

Fast Company's Most Creative People in Business issue (June 2017) is available online now here and on newsstands as of May 22.
