Enabling AI for computer vision incubator programme in Dublin

Intel is running an incubator programme with Talent Garden Dublin to discover and support startups that can use their unique Movidius AI computer vision technology.
For Intel, we are an ideal location because of our Strategic Partnership with Dublin City University and our existing AI competencies.
Intel is using a branded office, coworking desks and the school workshops as the physical element of the incubator, while the education element will be run in conjunction with our Innovation School and the fast.ai platform.

Silicon Valley Experience with Italgas

Italgas, the leading gas distributor, is facing a big innovation challenge represented by the full digitisation of the natural gas network. For this reason, we developed a project aimed to support Italgas to reach meaningful players in Silicon Valley. The initiative allowed the company team to connect with several possible stakeholders, spending a full week in Silicon Valley, meeting IoT sensors producers, Fog Computing solutions providers, local Venture Capitalists and accelerators specialised in the energy field.
Back in Italy, we supported the team to build an insightful report that has been presented in front of the company internal Innovation Committee, led by the CEO.

Move faster from idea to market-ready product with IBM in Copenhagen

Our partnership with IBM makes our Copenhagen members move faster from idea to market-ready product. We ensure that they get free access to IBM’s innovation and development platform Bluemix. This serves as their point of entry to all of IBM’s technologies, including the cognitive system Watson, which provides vast opportunities for using data for company growth.
