For years now Sirris’s Data Innovation team has supported the industry in implementing innovations in products and services, thanks to data science and artificial intelligence. This acquired knowledge and experience has been brought together in the Data and Artificial Intelligence Competence Lab.
The Sirris Data Innovation Team has acquired an extensive knowledge and experience through many events, initiatives and projects, including EluciDATA, together with the industry and other knowledge centres. The team will continue to expand and deploy this knowledge and experience under the name of ‘Sirris Data and Artificial Intelligence Competence Lab’.
