Biography: Dr Ruairí O’Reilly is an academic/researcher in the Department of Computer Science at Cork Institute of Technology, a member of the SFI Research Centre Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre, and a Senior member of the IEE. Ruairí graduated with a BSc in Computer Science (2008) and a PhD in Computer Science (2015) from University College Cork. Dr O’Reilly’s research focus is on artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, distributed systems and data analytics.

The intersection of artificial intelligence and healthcare is of particular interest. Currently, investigating the appropriateness and suitability machine learning approaches to be developed, evaluated and validated in a clinical setting. Dr O’Reilly has carried out significant work in the development of distributed architectures for the monitoring and analysis of time series data as applied to healthcare. This has resulted in the deployment of remote health solutions that combined e-health, automated analysis and decision making systems. At present Dr O’Reilly is supervising students pursuing the following PhD topics:

  1. Advancing Deep Architectures for Biomedical Image Analysis
  2. A Framework for Model-Agnostic Explainable Artificial Intelligence
  3. Mapping Personality And Emotions In Order To Enable Automatic State-to-Trait Inferences
