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 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
Secondary School Teachers:
Join Artificial Intelligence experts from ADAPT for this JCT STE(A)M workshop which examines Conversational Agents such as Chatbots, which simulate human conversation. Chatbots are used in many areas, for example online customer service and healthcare, but what are the future possibilities for Chatbot use in education?
Join us to discover how Chatbots work, the challenges involved and where the technology can be useful to teachers.
Call for Collaborators in County Kerry. ADAPT is partnering with the Centre for Smart Ageing and the Hands-On SHAFE projects to develop a #DiscussAI Think-In on the topic of Smart Ageing.
A workshop will take place in the Centre for Smart Ageing, Farranfore in March 2023. Email email@example.com to register your interest.
Talented problem-solvers from all over Ireland tackle the world’s toughest puzzles in logic, language and linguistics in the National Final of the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) in Dublin City University.
The All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) challenges students to use their lateral thinking skills to solve puzzles in languages from all over the globe. These transferable skills are very important in other subjects such as Maths, Coding and learning new languages.
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.
