As a company that has grown from an academic research project under the guidance of the late Professor John Lewis, we have been deeply immersed in data science and mathematics since our inception in 2000. John believed the application of a mathematically rigorous approach was essential to understanding complex physical phenomena. His influence is as strong today in Corvil’s culture as it was during our beginnings. For us, data science is finding mathematically concise and economic explanations for complex physical ideas. Data science is in our DNA, is an essential element of our soul.

It’s with pride in John, our founders (Ian Dowse, Fergal Toomey and Raymond Russell), and all the data scientists we have hired since those early days, that we’re pleased to be awarded the “Indigenous Irish Company of the Year” award at Inaugural Data Science Awards 2016.

Yes, Corvil was born in Ireland. Our name is derived from the Irish word “corrmhiol” because of the Mosquito algorithm -- one of the early analytics we implemented as a product. However, we have spread ourselves around the world since then. Looking for those unique, like-minded individuals to join our team. Delivering value to our customers through precise understanding and insights that only the marriage of data and mathematics can bring.

This is why we enjoy establishing personal connections with other data-minded people. It’s why we attend events like these -- to hear compelling panel discussions on Artificial Intelligence with Paul O’Grady from Zalando, and Fergal Reid from Cleverbug. To have conversations with Dave Sheehan of AIB, who won Data Scientist of the year. To give encouragement to bright young minds like Kevin Brosnan from University of Limerick, who was awarded the Deutsche Bank Student of the Year award. For us, the best aspect of being part of the Data Science Awards is recognizing in others what we see in ourselves.

The challenges our customers bring us have changed over the years, and will continue to change in the years to come. However, the fundamentals of how we approach solving those problems, how we approach understanding the essential workings of machines acting our behalf will not change. We will take on those complex problems and challenges, dive deeply into the data to strip out the inessential details and present clear and concise solutions. We constantly strive to improve how we present our analysis and insights to provide deeper insights for our customers. We will constantly strive to find other bright data-minded individuals to help us understand what the future will bring.
