Huawei has established a new research partnership with Trinity College as part of its growing R&D; footprint in Ireland.
The global ICT leader will also be expanding its small research and development operation in Cork to almost 20 skilled staff.
Deputy Chairman & Rotating CEO Guo Ping made the announcements at an event at the Dublin college on Monday morning.
"We are continuing to tap into Ireland’s growing clusters of video, artificial intelligence, cloud, telecoms and technology businesses, nurturing future talent and providing additional new opportunities for highly-skilled professionals," he said.
The new research collaboration will focus on video intelligence and how the emerging area of artificial intelligence will impact society.
"Our joint efforts with Huawei in this innovative space will endeavour to strive for new breakthroughs in a rapidly emerging area that is to have a far-reaching impact on society into the future," Dr Patrick Prendergast, Provost of Trinity College Dublin, said.
As part of his visit to Dublin, Guo Ping will also meet with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to update him on Huawei’s 13-year presence in Ireland.
"Huawei's continued investment in Ireland illustrates the innovative technology ecosystem we have developed, with more and more major international tech firms basing and growing their operations here," Mr Varadkar said.
"Bilateral trade between Ireland and China is now worth over €12bn each year, and by strengthening our links with companies like Huawei we can increase this further in the years ahead."
In 2017, Huawei’s R&D; investment in Ireland grew significantly to $21m (€17.7m) in 2017 and the group now employs over 160 people in Dublin, Athlone and Cork.
