CeADAR is funded by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, with the Centre’s work focusing on developing tools, techniques and technologies that enable more people, organisations and industries to use analytics and AI for better decision making and sustained competitive advantage. The Centre is the bridge between the worlds of research in Data Analytics and AI and their commercial deployment.
Since establishment in 2013, CeADAR has worked with over 90 member companies, completed 60 industry-focused projects and influenced more than 600 additional Irish based companies to move towards implementing Data Analytics and AI as viable business tools.
The Version 1 Innovation Labs, established in 2018, is committed to exploring Disruptive Technology in collaboration with our customers to demonstrates the ‘art of the possible’. Successfully partnering on projects such as ICBF, with whom we developed a Blockchain solution to enable ‘Farm to Fork’ traceability, our Innovation Labs team works by developing a ‘Proof of Value’ over a period of up to 12 weeks, enabling the customer to ‘prove the value’ of the technology to their business. We focus on how Disruptive Technology can solve real problems for our customers delivering tangible benefits, as opposed to exploring innovation for innovation’s sake.
