KPMG Ireland to create 200 jobs with new EU AI Hub



KPMG Ireland has launched a new EU AI Hub to support clients using new artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and to navigate incoming regulation in the EU and globally.

The facility will lead to the creation of 200 new jobs and will be located in the firm’s Platform X Global Innovation Hub in Dublin’s IFSC.

The new roles will be filled over the next three years in the areas of AI, risk, regulatory services and cyber security.

Supported by Microsoft and AI security and trust software firm Cranium, the EU AI Hub is designed to provide KPMG clients with access to tools and insights to navigate the complexities of AI implementation including the impending EU AI Act.

“The EU AI Hub brings together top minds and cutting-edge technology in a collaborative environment and is uniquely positioned to support businesses in optimising AI solutions,” said Sean Redmond, Director, KPMG.

“It is also important that organisations don’t see the impending EU AI Act as a blocker to innovation and ideation, but instead it provides the guardrails that enable organisations to experiment with AI and deliver value to their businesses and customers,” Mr Redmond said.

Speaking at the launch, Minister of State Neale Richmond welcomed the opening of the new EU AI Hub.

“AI presents an opportunity, and a challenge, for many Irish businesses and KPMG’s Hub will help them to navigate the world of AI, and the regulation that comes with it,” Mr Richmond said.

“Through our strategy ‘AI – Here for Good’, Ireland aims to be an international leader in the AI space, with a people-focused and ethical approach and KPMG’s EU AI Hub will help us to reach this goal,” he added.

Jonathan Dambrot, CEO of Cranium, said his company will be involved in the capturing of the technical components of AI models as well as running risk reports.

“Joining forces with KPMG and Microsoft, we’re demonstrating that organisations are backed by the confidence and maturity to achieve EU AI Act readiness,” Mr Dambrot said.
