Views and announcements

Big Data Belfast returns with amazing speakers and thought-provoking topics

  • Aislinn Rice, Managing Director at Analytics Engines introduces this year’s Big Data Belfast conference.

    I am delighted to take the opportunity to introduce some key announcements in the lead-up to this year’s Big Data Belfast 2023 Conference, curated and organised by Analytics Engines. Every year, we present international speakers and current topics to a thriving tech community here on the island of Ireland. It’s a chance for delegates to learn from their peers, elevate their thinking and be inspired by leaders who take to the stage.

    From the wealth of experience in the room, both on stage and off, it is clear that we have a vibrant and ambitious tech community who thrive on collaboration and innovation. It’s no surprise that Northern Ireland is now being referred to as a ‘testing centre’ for Artificial Intelligence in the UK. Analytics Engines are at the forefront of innovation in the field of AI and we hope to inspire conference delegates with some of our own exciting developments and customer stories.

    This year we want to shake out the important topics that matter to everyone regardless of their professional pursuit.  It’s no surprise that climate, ESG and net-zero objectives are at the forefront of many organizations as they journey on their way towards their sustainability goals. Emerging technologies and innovation are the vehicle to getting us there with AI and data analytics having a central part to play in this.

    At Analytics Engines, our vision for AI and technological innovation is to revolutionise the way businesses harness the power of data, enabling them to uncover the true narrative hidden within their information. Our core expertise lies in AI-enhanced search and discovery, propelling us to the forefront of cutting-edge solutions.

    We have been developing and implementing AI solutions for many years. Since the release of ChatGPT, there has been a significant step change in the capabilities of LLMs and we have been deeply immersed in the new ecosystem of tools and techniques. Analytics Engines now act as a solutions advisor and implementation partner to unlock business value with LLMs and AI.

    Our mission is to facilitate intelligent decision-making by providing connected insights and fostering a deeper understanding of complex information on a significant scale. We envision a future where AI serves as an invaluable ally, assisting businesses in extracting meaningful patterns, trends, and correlations from vast and diverse datasets. That future is here and now; it’s in the data stories that businesses tell every year at Big Data Belfast.

    Big Data Belfast serves as a national technology checkpoint. We know the ecosystem is thriving with innovation but sometimes it takes a gathering of minds to remind us that we have something special in Northern Ireland. So, mark the date as your annual technological and intellectual renewal- See you there!
