Welcome to our blog

Welcome to our new blog! We’re the AIB Research & Innovation team — AIB being Allied Irish Banks, one of Ireland’s largest banks — and we’re excited to bring our blog to Medium.

We’re a team of different backgrounds and skills — one team member has a PhD in astrophysics, another is a mathematician and another one of us used to be a professional soccer player. We have designers, developers, data scientists and between us we speak Irish, Polish, French, Spanish, Cantonese and Japanese. We were also completely obsessed with Westworld, not sure have we recovered yet. The Maze is not for you.

We all have a passion about technology and the future — and that’s our mission; to research technology and concepts that could impact AIB and our Customers, building our own prototypes where we think they may add value.

We’ve created this publication on Medium to publicise some of our work and to engage — to get feedback and thoughts of anyone who’s kind enough to read us! We’ll be sharing our thoughts on technology, the future, what we’re working on and much more, all guaranteed to come with plenty of bad jokes and references to whatever show we’re bingeing on!

So any thoughts or comments, please let us know, and we hope you enjoy the insight into our work. Andy.
