Insight's Smart Stadium project has been nominated for a 2018 US-Ireland Research Innovation Award. 

Now in their fourth year, The US-Ireland Research Innovation Awards recognise excellence in research innovation, creation and invention by an organisation, as a result of US foreign direct investment (FDI) in Ireland. 

Insight@DCU, Intel and Microsoft are nominated for artificial intelligence research, concentrating on computer vision methods to ensure crowd safety as demonstrated in the “Smart Croke Park” test-bed.

Also nominated is Insight industry partner Orreco, for building the world’s first AI coach for elite athletes and health-conscious consumers. Blending novel sports and data science with IBM Watson, Orreco analyses blood biomarkers, training and wellness data to reduce injury and illness and to optimise performance.

The winners will be announced on 18 May at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner in the presence of Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys. You can read more about the awards here.
