    Welcome to episode 60 of the AI Ireland podcast, the show that explores the applications and research of Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence on the island of Ireland.

    Our mission is to increase the use of AI for the benefit of our society, our competitiveness and everyone living in Ireland.

    In today’s show, we are joined by Elaine Robinson, Analytics Manager at the ESB and Kieran McCorry, National Technology Officer at Microsoft Ireland.

    • An overview of the goals and objectives of the SMART project
    • How the ESB Networks have used AI technology and Azure Cloud Platform as an enabler to increase the rollout success of SMART Metering
