Irish innovation is thriving, especially across industries that prioritize using digital technologies. More and more exciting and cutting-edge start-ups are discovering their place in international markets, particularly in the MENA region, with Dubai serving as the hub for intercontinental travel, thanks to Ireland going to act as a hotbed for travel technology companies and Enterprise Ireland supplying them with a collaborative ecosystem.
This start-up, which has its headquarters at NovaUCD, has created a clinical platform to aid doctors in choosing the proper tests for their patients. This platform provides medical professionals with “next step” action advice based on the most recent evidence-based recommendations once they input information about a patient’s condition, such as an x-ray, MRI scan, clinic appointment, or self-management plan. To address healthcare backlogs, providers often consider expanding capacities, such as employees or equipment, but this can be “a slow and expensive solution,” according to xWave CEO Mitchell O’Gorman.
Irish IT firms have been instrumental in supplying top-tier businesses with tech solutions that address booking, payment, and customer-focused ICT requirements. Arvoia is one such company that changed the game in the travel sector by enabling market leaders to acquire a thorough grasp of their direct customers through various prediction and personalization products. As a result, the global aviation and hospitality industries are turning more and more to Irish travel technology firms, which are harnessing their expertise in artificial intelligence to rethink current product strategies.
Another digital technology transforming Irish business is telematics, which transmits data via a wireless connection. As a result, everything within our lifestyles has become increasingly interconnected.
Telematics, an interdisciplinary domain that includes telecommunications, road transportation, vehicle technologies, traffic safety, electrical engineering, and computer programming, is already affecting auto insurance. The system enables the end consumer to gather data about supervised vehicles, providing insurers with a complete picture of the motorist they are trying to cover.
Robotics is becoming increasingly visible in Ireland. This engineering branch, which includes the formation, layout, manufacture, and procedure of robots, covers many regions of Irish business, including electronics, mechatronics, computer science, and nanotechnology, as well as artificial intelligence and bioengineering.
Despite funding constraints, digital and connective technologies are starting to revolutionize healthcare in Ireland. The landscape is dramatically changing, with possibilities varying from electronic health records to wearable devices, mobile healthcare, big data, genomics, and robotics technologies. The ‘doctor and the bot’ have arrived at our door. Tallaght Hospital in Dublin was the earliest in Ireland to trial a “remote doctor” system in 2016. ‘Lucy,’ a telepresence cyborg, allows doctors to a remote location to visit patients at their bedsides. The system consists of a touchscreen tablet protected by a flexible pole mounted on top of a self-balancing battery-powered wheel.
