Biography

Duncan Irving, is responsible for creating new business models from conventional, emerging and digital technologies as Equinor evolves into a full-spectrum energy company. Many of the business models are data-driven, and AI forms a key part of them as either a tactical enabler, or a strategic driver for new capabilities. His portfolio contains the scalability roadmaps that ensure long-term sustainability of analytics and AI in new business models. Before this role, Duncan spent twelve years in analytics and data consulting: nine years initiating and leading the EMEA oil and gas consulting capabilities for Teradata, where he worked in, led, and scaled data engineering and data science projects; and then three years at TietoEVRY in Norway where he headed energy sector business consulting, and was also the principle consultant for data, analytics and AI. He has delivered and led analytics and data science projects in several energy companies, often in the scientific domains, and typically with strong focus on data management and enterprise governance. He has created data and analytics strategies for several organisations, and served as the interim data officer of a smaller UK energy company during its digital transformation. Duncan has a degree in Geophysics (Edinburgh) and a PhD in geotechnical modelling of frozen ground (Cardiff and ETH Zurich). As a post-doctoral researcher he has variously worked on supercomputing problems, deep ocean surveying, and modelling glacial environments, moving into business development and the commercialization of academic projects. He has co-authored several papers and a book on the practicalities of becoming data-driven in the energy sector.
