When and where is it on?
22 November, Gibson Hotel in Dublin
How many years has it been going?
This is our first year of the AI awards but AI Ireland has been running events since June together with Irish artificial intelligence companies and interested individuals.
What was the inspiration to start it?
Everyone knows Ireland is the European home to many top US technology multi-nationals. It’s far less broadly known that Irish companies of various sizes are themselves leading global innovators in the area of artificial intelligence.

Who will be speaking?
We are finalising the list of speakers from both multi-national companies and startups to showcase the full range of activities in the AI space. Microsoft have graciously agreed to be our lead sponsor so they will show some of the work they are doing in the AI space both internationally and in their Irish operations.
