We start at the usual time of 6pm on Monday 27th January with three excellent speakers; Kathrina Murphy (Chief Data Officer, KBC Bank Ireland), Dr Barry Haycock (Head of Data Science and Robotics in KBC Bank Ireland) and Dave Lewis (Assistant Professor, TCD and Associate Directory of Spokes, ADAPT Centre).

6:00 – 6.45: Arrival and Networking

6.45 – 7.00: Kathrina Murphy – “The Importance of Data to KBC Bank Ireland”

Kathrina Murphy is the Chief Data Officer at KBC Bank Ireland, partnering with the business to optimise the use of data & analytics within the bank. She has extensive experience in leadership, strategic decision making, modelling & reporting, programme management, as well as having a Big-4, international and plc background. Kathrina will explain the importance of data to KBC and how KBC is ‘doing different’.

7.00 – 7.20: Barry Haycock – “Towards explainable and interpretable AI: using the game theoretic approach SHAP (SHapley Additive exPlanations) to explain the output of machine learning models.”

Dr Barry Haycock is the Head of Data Science and Robotics in KBC Bank Ireland. Before coming to KBC he had worked in numerous Data Science and Molecular Modelling roles.

Barry received his PhD from DIT in 2011 in Computational Physics where he was building models to understand quantum mechanical effects on semiconductor surfaces. For his PostDoc he predicted properties of chemicals before experimental synthesis. He started his data science journey with KBC in 2015.

7.20 – 7.40: Prof. Dave Lewis

Prof. Dave Lewis is involved in the ISO/IEC committee working on the standardisation of AI. Dave’s research has focused the Progressive Self-Management of value networks and their shared digital resources. With interest in the ethics and sociality impact of technology.

“By working to standardise AI we are enabling more reliable, consistent and efficient assessment methods and tools for users, purchasers and future regulators of AI. Government and international bodies around the world are highlighting these as critical factors in building trustworthy AI. Being involved in international AI standards will strongly position Irish researchers and companies to exploit new commercial opportunities that arise from its adoption.”
