Are you intrigued by the role Artificial Intelligence and devices like phones, fitness trackers and smart speakers play in our lives?
Would you like to be part of the discussion around the ethics of AI technology? Join ADAPT’s programme of #DiscussAI events to find out more.
#DiscussAI is a national conversation about Artificial Intelligence (AI), exploring AI’s impact on our lives and society.
Through #DiscussAI events, ADAPT researchers are engaging individuals and communities across the country in conversations that raise and answer questions on AI, and generate ideas for new research.
We would love to welcome you at one of our future events. 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 [email protected] for more information.
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.
AILO introduces students to linguistics (i.e. the study of human language) and to the application of logic to problems of language understanding and translation. The goal is to develop students’ problem-solving skills and to inspire them to consider the fascinating range of careers at the intersection of computing, linguistics and language.
‘Who Wants to Write an Email?’ is a new game show for the AI era that premieres at the Dublin Fringe Festival from 9-12 September 2023.
Drawing inspiration from Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, contestants from the audience will take the hot seat to answer trivia questions about AI that can generate text based on a prompt. They’ll use their lifelines and try their best to think like an algorithm to win hilarious prizes!
START: European Researchers’ Night takes place on 29 September in Trinity College, in the heart of Dublin City Centre. ADAPT researchers will contribute a programme of AI-focused events – expect thought-provoking interactions, lively discussions and cutting-edge AI research.
European Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide public event, which displays the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives in fun, inspiring ways.
A free Transition Year Linguistics module consisting of 10 topics covering topics such as phonetics, writing systems and language acquisition has been developed by the ADAPT All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO).
The module was funded by Post-Primary Languages Ireland (PPLI) and uses AILO puzzles so that students can get hands-on experience of linguistic problem-solving.
ADAPT is contributing to a new festival of Art and Technology which is coming later this year. BETA will explore the relationship between technology and society, and will ask “How did we get here?” and “Where to next?”
Science Week is a week-long event in Ireland each November, celebrating science in our everyday lives. Science Week includes a wide variety of events involving industry, colleges, schools, libraries, teachers, researchers and students throughout Ireland. Science Week has a number of regional festivals offering a range of opportunities for the public to engage with STEM in across Ireland.
Join ADAPT to discuss all things Artificial Intelligence at Cavan-Monaghan Science Festival’s Family Fun Day at St Josephs Hall in Ballyjamesduff on 11 November 2023.
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.
For Science Week 2020, SignON presents an art-science event that combines artificial intelligence with Shakespeare. Alvean Jones and Lianne Quigley will perform some of the most iconic scenes from Shakespeare in Irish Sign Language for a unique audience of people and machines.
Artificially intelligent apps will watch the performance with you, so that you get to see what a machine sees when it watches theatre. The performance will be followed by a discussion on artificial intelligence and sign language machine translation. This event includes ISL interpreters.
