WAVTEQ, the economic development business attraction consulting group, has secured support from InterTradeIreland(ITI) to build an Artificial Intelligence (AI) team. The new AI division will commence R&D activity into a fully automated corporate intelligence research platform. ITI funding will provide additional employment in the fields of artificial intelligence and data analytics, with new appointments to WAVTEQ’s dedicated software engineering team, based in Cork, Ireland, expected within the next two months. In February 2018, this expanded team will move into a new state of the art facility at Fota Business Park, Cork.

The research and development undertaken by WAVTEQ under InterTradeIreland’s Fusion Program will be in collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast and will be jointly led by Robert Pasley, Chief Technology Officer at WAVTEQ and Dr Salissou Moutari from the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s.

Robert Pasley, CTO, WAVTEQ, commented “The support of InterTradeIreland's Fusion program is allowing WAVTEQ to embark on an exciting and challenging project that aims to automate research and analysis into company expansion and overseas investment. Upon completion, we expect to be in a position to offer a new range of products and services to our ever-growing global client base. We are delighted that Queen’s University Belfast has agreed to partner with us on this project, bringing invaluable expertise and insight in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning."
