Walter is leading Irish team in the Info. Olympics

A YOUNG MAN with very strong New Ross and district connections is leading the very first Irish team m the Information Olympics which are to be held in Argentina.

He is 18·years-old Walter O’Brien, whose father, Maurice, is a native of Cushinstown, and his mother, Anne, nee Ronan, hails from New Ross. They lived at Borohill House, Clonroche, until about five years ago and the families are now based near Callan in Co.Kilkenny.

The remarkable thing about Walter’s achievement is that he is a self-taught computer expert who left for Sussex University two weeks ago to talk on ‘Artificial Intelligence’ which is all about getting computers to think like humans. He has also been to Queen’s University where he was involved in a research project involving experts from England, Australia, America, etc.

He attended Courtnacuddy NS, Enniscorthy CBS and the CBS, Callan. He has competed against and has beaten Andrew Farrell, the child prodigy who was featured on the Late Late Show.

The three-man Irish team, which he leads in Argentina, is being sponsored by Cara Data Processing, while the Argentinian Government will pick up the tabs in Mendoza.
