  • Northern Ireland companies are in Texas this week showcasing the very latest in digital and creative technologies at South by Southwest (SxSW).

    SxSW is the world’s leading event for music, film and technology. Held in Austin, Texas, the event attracts key decision makers from the US and other global markets. Invest Northern Ireland is supporting a delegation of 15 companies and music acts to attend this year’s event to demo their digital and interactive products and meet with potential trade partners.

    Alastair Hamilton, Chief Executive, Invest NI said: “Northern Ireland has a growing Digital ICT sector, with immersive tech and artificial intelligence (AI) being cited as a hotbed of emerging technology development.

    “We’re delighted to be at SxSW supporting local companies including Kainos, On Music and Speed Motion Films to showcase new technologies such as AI and next generation mobile which are at the very forefront of this evolving sector.” 

    An ‘Immersed in Northern Ireland’ event is being hosted by Invest NI at SxSW in collaboration with Digital Catapult NI.

    Alastair continued: “Belfast based Neurovalens is demonstrating its Modius headset, the next generation of wearable health tech, and QUB spin out Incisiv is showcasing how the use of immersive technology and motion capture can drive enhanced sports performance. 

    “All of this innovative technology has been developed in Northern Ireland and the potential for more of our companies to move into this space is unlimited. Matrix, the Northern Ireland Science Industrial panel, has identified that artificial intelligence also offers companies many opportunities to help increase productivity. I hope this event will be beneficial to the companies and look forward to hearing of future export successes as a result.”
