Artificial IntelligenceLearnosity announces major AI investment and workforce expansion in Dublin

Dublin-based edtech leader Learnosity has today announced the launch of its new AI Labs initiative, aimed at driving world-leading innovation in the education technology space.

This ambitious project will see Learnosity, who provide industry-leading assessment technology across a range of high-stakes industries, create over 20 new, high-value, R&D job roles for the next generation of data scientists, product managers, prompt engineers and full stack software engineers focused on operationalising the promise of AI to benefit all.

Learnosity co-founder and CEO Gavin Cooney emphasised the organisation’s commitment to developing home-grown AI talent. “We want to nurture the next generation of Irish AI experts who can lead the charge in revolutionising edtech. Through this initiative, we’re creating Irish-based jobs for the next generation of Irish talent and helping to make Ireland synonymous with AI innovation.”

Central to the AI Labs’s mission is furthering access to emerging technologies.

Gavin continues “We see this as an opportunity to lead by example – to show how AI can create opportunities when guided by an ethical compass. Too often, the benefits of new technology advancements are only truly available to the largest companies and never make it into the hands of educators and students who need them most. We plan to change that.”

Thomas Byrne, Minister for Sport, Physical Education and the Gaeltacht and TD for Meath East, warmly welcomed the announcement saying, “This is fantastic news for Ireland. I warmly welcome this investment of 20 new positions in the cutting edge digital assessment solutions and EdTech sector.  It is a wonderful vote of confidence in Ireland’s tech sector and the attractive environment that the Government has created. I commend co-founder of Learnosity, Gavin Cooney, for basing these 20 new jobs in Ireland. I wish Learnosity every success and congratulate them on their many achievements across the globe, to date.”

Learnosity, which serves over 40 million users globally, was recently ranked 16th on TIME Magazine’s inaugural list of the World’s Top EdTech Companies. Ranking 1st for Irish EdTech business and 3rd across European organisations on the list which recognises the top 250 leading forces in the EdTech industry.
