#DiscussAI Autumn 2022 Brochure
#DiscussAI is ADAPT’s interactive and collaborative programme of public events about Artificial Intelligence and how this ground-breaking technology impacts all of our lives and society.
Through the #DiscussAI programme, ADAPT researchers seek to engage communities and individuals across the country in conversations that raise and answer questions, and generate ideas for new research.
We would love to welcome you at one of our future discussions. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our plans: https://bit.ly/EPE-mailinglist.

A new modular workshop programme will engage Transition Year students in a series of workshops exploring digital privacy, ethical behaviour and AI career paths.
AI in My Life will run nationally from the start of the new school year in September 2022 and expressions of interest are currently open. Teachers do not need any existing knowledge of AI, as ADAPT will run ‘train-the-trainer’ workshops and offer on-going support to teachers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
ADAPT will be hosting a panel on citizen science and citizen curation in the Talks tent in Trinity College Dublin for START: European Researchers Night 2022. Join us from 7.30-8.30.
We will be talking to researchers, experts and the public to investigate: What does it mean for the public to take on the role of citizen scientist?
We want to put YOUR questions about Citizen Science to our panellists! Click the image to submit your question.
Every year on the last Friday of September, European Researchers’ Night brings research alive through activities which combine education with entertainment, such as exhibitions, hands-on experiments, science shows, games, competitions, quizzes and more.
ADAPT’s programme of events form part of START: Start Talking About Research Today which sees Trinity College Dublin come alive with activities for all ages and all interests. All events are completely free, but registration may be required.
The Glass Room: Misinformation Edition will be in Trinity College Dublin for START: European Researchers’ Night on 30 September.
Check out the eye catching, self-learning exhibition.
Brought to you by ADAPT’s #DiscussAI team, The Glass Room: Misinformation Edition immerses visitors in data and privacy, and encourages them to question their understanding and comfort around this topic.
Grab a free coffee and join the conversation about Artificial Intelligence and technology at the AI Dilemma Café!
At the AI Dilemma Café we will be exchanging coffee for chats about people’s interactions with AI and encouraging them to think about the technology they interact with on a day-to-day basis and how it shapes our lives and our interactions with others.
No prior knowledge of AI is necessary. Join us for this thought-provoking event.
Smile, you’re on camera!
Join this #DiscussAI Think-In for a lively discussion on the increasing use of public surveillance through Artificial Intelligence and its impact on our day-to-day lives.
To celebrate European Researchers Night, this Think-In will run simultaneously in Malta through our partners: the University of Malta and Science in the City.
The event is open to all adults. Note that you don’t need any prior knowledge of AI to participate.
Sign up to host or attend a free STEAM linguistic problem-solving workshop in your school. Open all to all secondary schools on the island. Click above to register.
Join this #DiscussAI Think-In in Maynooth Library for a lively discussion on the increasing use of public surveillance through Artificial Intelligence and its impact on our day-to-day lives.
Through fascinating discussion scenarios, we will explore and deliberate on the potential benefits and drawbacks of AI surveillance for individuals and society at large.
Four students will represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL), taking place in the Isle of Man in July 2022.
The Irish team is made up of the top four students from the 2022 All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) which is run by ADAPT, the SFI Research Centre for AI-Driven Digital Content Technology, at DCU.
Check out ADAPT installations at BIAS: Built This Way at Science Gallery Dublin, Pearse Street, Dublin 2 until end of January 2022.
The exhibition interrogates how prejudice can move quickly from human to machine as algorithms and artificial intelligence systems are encoded by humans with very human values, preferences and predispositions.
Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation, Robert Troy, opened a national conversation on Artificial Intelligence (AI) as part of the SFI ADAPT Centre’s Citizens’ Think-In initiative.
The multi-venue, interactive event explored the information we give to apps and home assistant devices and questioned whether we are giving away too much of our personal information for enough return?
