(3BL Media/Justmeans) - So who are the smartest companies right now? Who is shaking things up with innovation? Who is making a difference? The MIT Technology Review is out and has published its list of the “50 Smartest Companies,” those organizations that have made a difference through innovation over the past year. Familiar names such as Apple and Facebook aren’t on this list because reputation doesn’t matter. The criteria, says the Review is, “disruptive innovation that will prove to surpass the competition, transform an industry, and change our lives.”

The editors of MIT Technology Review did not count patents or Ph.Ds. Instead, they asked whether a company had made strides in the past year that will define its field. They found that the biggest of these strides happened at Illumina, which is driving down the price of DNA sequencing to levels that will change the practice of medicine. They also found dramatic developments on the Web, in batteries and in agricultural technologies.
