Tech Craic: Ruth McGuinness and AI Con 2020

  • This week, journalist Niamh Campbell speaks to Ruth McGuiness. She is the new AI Business Development Director at Kainos and she will be the Chair of the AI in Public Sector / National Data Strategy Session at AI Con 2020, which takes place virtually on 3 and 4 December.

    Ruth talks about her pathway into tech, what we can expect from this year's AI Con in the midst of the pandemic, and coming into Kainos as a 'Covid joiner'.

    AI Con allows likeminded individuals to discuss advances in AI and what it means for companies, government and the world in which we live. The conference this year is free, but those who would like to attend must register. You can do so here.
