Congratulations to Kids Speech Labs, who were announced yesterday as the winners of the 2022 Alsessor AI Accelerator Programme and received a €250,000 investment. The judges made their decision following a day of pitches from seven finalist companies.
The company is developing the first clinically validated remote screening and intervention platform for children’s Speech and Language therapists, SHARE. Their platform underpins the existing healthcare infrastructure so that the available workforce can meet the growing demands for services. SHARE allows Speech and Language therapists to review early data on a child’s development and triage them to the appropriate services. The current human-in-the-loop screening is adding incremental improvements to service delivery, but Kids Speech Labs is gathering a unique dataset on which to develop their Machine Learning roadmap.
We are proud to sponsor the programme, which was co-founded in 2020 by Cork technology firm Altada and Tangent, Trinity College Dublin’s ‘Ideas Workspace’. It offers AI start-ups working in the retail, digital health, fintech, insurtech, regulatory and compliance sectors the opportunity to expedite their commercial development within an intense accelerator environment.
Our Head of Intellectual Property, Gerard Kelly, said: “As Ireland’s leading technology law firm, we are proud to support Ireland’s thriving AI ecosystem through our sponsorship of this programme, and to help the next generation of AI innovators to grow and commercialise.”
