The company says its growing workforce will focus on the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Galway Bay fm newsroom - An artificial intelligence firm is reaching out to Galway's third level institutes as it announces 200 jobs for the city.

Today's announcement comes nine months after the firm acquired Altocloud, a Galway-based company described as a "customer journey analytics provider".

Altocloud Co-founder Barry O'Sullivan said Galway was selected for the centre of excellence due to its varied talent pool and cultural diversity.

"It is always a source of pride to know that companies - global and local - are developing products and services right here in Galway that make such an impact and positive difference in countries around the world".

The senior and highly skilled positions are based at Genesys's new office in the city and the California-based company says they will be filled over the next three years. The new Genesys roles will require highly technical skills spanning R&D, machine learning, software engineering, user experience and data science.

Since acquiring Altocloud the USA firm has doubled its team in Ireland.

Two hundred jobs are to be created in Galway by a USA firm that specialises in Artificial Intelligence technology.

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said that Ireland is becoming a global home for AI endeavours. "AI is an area of huge growth globally and Ireland has a significant opportunity to build upon the vibrant cluster of companies operating in this area", he said.
