We do a lot of work with Prof Barry O'Sullivan in the Insight Centre for Data Analytics so we were delighted when he was announced as the Science Foundation Ireland Researcher of the Year.
Prof O'Sullivan is Director of Insight@UCC. His research interests include artificial intelligence, constraint programming, operations research and decision analytics. He was recently elected deputy president of the European Association for Artificial Intelligence (EurAI), the world's largest association for AI.
We work with him a lot on Insight's Magna Carta for Data Project. In September, he spoke for the second time at the United Nations Headquarters in New York about artificial intelligence and data analytics in the context of sustainable development.
He also plays tenor saxophone, he bakes, he's a keen gardener and a dad of three. We're not sure when he sleeps. Congrats Barry.
