DataChemist Honoured as a Best Industry Project at the Leading European Machine Learning and AI Conference
Vienna, Austria: September 17th – Dublin based cutting-edge tech startup, DataChemist, was honoured at the SEMANTiCS 2018 conference, the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and Artificial Intelligence. With 51 industry projects selected, DataChemist was one of only two to receive the highly sought ‘honourable mention’ from the expert panel of judges. The DataChemist commercial project was submitted with Dutch-German multinational, Wolters Kluwer.
The project imposed a semantic structure on commercial intelligence data covering the entire Polish economy. By doing so it enabled complex questions relating to ownership patterns, relationships between entities and individuals, and the changing nature of these relationships over time to be answered in real-time via an intuitive graphical UI. DataChemist was recognised by the judges to have released significant new value for Wolters Kluwer and to be a technology at the frontiers of knowledge.
DataChemist is led by Kevin Feeney, who was in Vienna to receive the honour from the SEMANTiCS 2018 panel. “We are absolutely delighted to receive this recognition for our work with Wolters Kluwer” commented Feeney. “The project, for me and my colleagues, was complex and challenging, but we were happy to turn the huge volume of data into actionable insights. Our core proposition is to identify critical business relationships hidden in data and help our customers to manage risk and identify new opportunities.”
SEMANTiCS, which took place in Vienna from 11 to 13 September, is the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and AI. It brings together researchers, industry experts and business leaders to develop a deep understanding of trends and applications in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Linked Data and Natural Language Processing. The 14th edition was hosted in Vienna, Austria.
Data Chemist has a simple goal: to make data meaningful. DataChemist transforms the messy, inconsistent data sets of the real world into clean, structured and integrated data. Our customers improve decision-making and reduce costs as a result.
DataChemist spun out of TCD in 2018 in order to bring a new way of thinking about data to the market, and help leading organisations find the relationships and insights in their existing data that have until now remained hidden.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, DataChemist is funded by Atlantic Bridge and Enterprise Ireland and works with some of Europe’s largest financial and commercial intelligence organisations.
