Welcome to episode 48 of AI in Action Ireland, the podcast that breaks down the hype and explores the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.

In the run-up to the 2019 AI Awards, our goal is to share with you the insights of this year’s sponsors to showcase the excellent work that is been done within AI in Ireland.

We are delighted to have Mason Hayes & Curran join us as one of our sponsors for next month’s 2019 AI Awards.

It also gives an overview of how the AI industry is developing in Ireland as well as how EU guidance and regulation is shaping up.

In the episode, Brian will discuss:

  • MHC’s role in the tech world
