ADAPT Centre Shortlisted for 2021 Technology Ireland Awards

20 October 2021

The ADAPT Centre has been shortlisted for the 2021 Technology Ireland Award in the Outstanding Academic Achievement.  The nomination was based on a collaborative project with Fidelity Investments that looked at dividend modelling.  The solution used machine learning to reduce the workload on personnel and provide the company with accurate predictions for investment funds.  The research that was undertaken amalgamated the extensive existing research methods for individual markets into a unified methodology to achieve the required dividend payment predictions.

From a record 82 applications, 47 entries have now been shortlisted for the 29th Technology Ireland Industry Awards. Technology Ireland, alongside platinum sponsors EY Ireland, gold sponsors Fidelity Investments, Workhuman and Enterprise Ireland, extended their congratulations to the successful entries, stating that the mix of indigenous Irish-owned companies and international FDI companies and the quality of the entries highlighted the vibrancy of the Irish tech sector.

The next stage of the awards will see the shortlisted entries present to ten independent judging panels, composed of CEOs and founders of successful Irish technology companies, and leaders within the technology sector.  ADAPT will compete against other finalists IBM Research in Ireland, CONNECT Research Centre, National College of Ireland, and CeADAR – Ireland’s Centre for Applied AI for the award.

The winners of this year’s awards will be announced at the annual awards event on 19 November in the Westin Hotel, Dublin.
