Artificial intelligence is one of the most consequential technologies of our time, which can be applied to almost every sector of the economy. Our teams of AI and data science researchers offer a unique opportunity for organisations to partner with award-winning experts in the field, to deliver innovative data-driven solutions to our partners. We support in excess of 450 researchers who are constantly advancing the state-of-the-art in data technologies and applying them to enhance the competitiveness of the companies that we work with. We are enthusiastic about doing more collaborative R&D with interested companies of all sizes ranging from indigenous SMEs to large multinationals, especially in the Fingal region.
