The Driving Force
Behind The Technology
Altada was founded by Allan Beechinor and Niamh Parker. Frustrated with the lack of ethical and trustworthy AI products, they set out to build a company that delivers scalable AI solutions.
In 2017 with the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Allan Beechinor with a group data technology advocates solved the complexity of Personal Identifiable Information (PII). This journey lead to the inception of the Altada AI-driven platform.
Through their combined experience in technology and entrepreneurship Altada was established at the right time to address the acute needs of organisations with AI adoption. Niamh and Allan have four children and are passionate about nurturing the AI talent ecosystem. Altada has partnered with Tangent, Trinity College Dublin’s ideas workspace on the AI accelerator, Alsessor.
