AI-generated art tools like DALL-E, Midjourney and Stable Diffusion are changing how we view art and creativity. But as humans, how good are we at distinguishing a classic from an artwork generated by a machine?
The ‘Art or AI?’ Museum of Very Modern Art will have you scratching your head to figure out your Dalís from your DALL-Es. Browse the gallery. Ask yourself is this machine art or a Monet masterpiece. Note your answers and check your scores.
At the AI Dilemma Café we will be exchanging coffee for chats about people’s interactions with AI. Our AI dilemmas will encourage you to think about the technology you interact with on a day-to-day basis and how it shapes our lives and our interactions with others.
There will also be pop-up talks on ADAPT’s Artificial Intelligence research throughout the evening. Full programme coming soon!
What happens to your body when you trick your mind into thinking you’re moving while sitting still and wearing a VR visor? From virtual to reality… and back! invites you to immerse yourself in a virtual world and experience it for yourself!
Experience what it feels like to embody a virtual avatar by wearing an IVR visor. This avatar may have different somatic features (skin color, clothes, body shape) or it can perform different actions (moving while the person is sitting) and this illusion can trigger subjective (having the feeling of moving) or physiological (changes in heart rate) effects.
What is vasculitis and how is AI helping us improve treatment for people with vasculitis? Researchers will demonstrate how blood flows to organs via healthy blood vessels versus inflamed blood vessels in vasculitis.
Find out how AI approaches are being used to safely manage and curate vast amounts of patient information, in order to help doctors better manage autoimmune disease. Give us your feedback on the use of AI in medicine.
SignON is a European funded Horizon 2020 project, centred around co-creation and exploring automated translation between sign languages and spoken languages.
To celebrate START and EU Researcher Night 2023, the SignON team will showcase their research on sign language machine translation, including a demonstration of the technology, and the creative approaches the project uses to gather feedback from potential Deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing users of the technology.
Calling all Irish speakers. Have you ever tried to add an article to Vicipéid (the Irish language version of Wikipedia)? Not sure where to start? Our tool can help to automatically produce a short text on the fly which you can then edit the text manually if needed, to create a new Wikipedia page.
You’ve probably heard of ChatGPT, but our approach does NOT use large language models like GPT. Find out about this alternative rule-based system that encodes grammatical and lexical knowledge of the Irish language.
You might be familiar with tools like Google Translate, but how does automatic translation between Irish and English work?
Find out about the eSTÓR website collects English-Irish language date to improve Irish Language Technology. Come explore the eSTÓR website and learn how the data collected is used to improve the eTranslation Machine Translation system.
A Shakespeare performance in Irish Sign Language for people and machines. That is the Question is a short film combining science and theatre to explore how an artificial intelligence might perceive sign language.
Performed by Alvean Jones and Lianne Quigley, That is the Question features texts from Shakespeare translated to Irish Sign Language, and integrates elements of sign language machine translation technologies. It was produced as part of the European-funded Horizon 2020 SignON project, and supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
Picture this: you can see through objects and surfaces like Superman, all thanks to cutting-edge computer vision and image processing wizardry. Say goodbye to guesswork and hello to super-powered situational awareness! It’s like having your very own superhero x-ray goggles, right at your fingertips.
Now, imagine the endless possibilities! In medicine, doctors can get a superhero-like view inside patients, making diagnoses easier and treatments more precise. Engineers can check the insides of structures and equipment, ensuring everything is rock-solid without breaking a sweat. Exciting, huh? But wait, with great power comes great responsibility! We’re aware of the ethical concerns, so rest assured, our AR X-ray vision tech is all about responsible use and data protection. Your secrets are safe with us!
Get ready to unleash your inner superhero and join us on this epic adventure!
The ADAPT All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) workshop series is underway. AILO challenges students to solve problems in little known languages from all over the globe. Free workshops are taking place in secondary schools all over the island between late September and early January 2024.
The workshops aim to improve students’ problem-solving and language awareness skills and help prepare them to take part in the AILO competition in schools in January. This year, as well as improving their lateral thinking and team-working skills, students compete to represent Ireland in Brazil in July 2024. Sign up for free workshops at ailo.adaptcentre.ie/workshops.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform the world we live in. This workshop will give second-level students and teachers a fun introduction to the AI in My Life school workshop series. In this 90-min. taster workshop, students will: learn about AI; uncover some of the ethical and privacy implications of AI; and evaluate the role of AI in their lives and in society.
Delivered by the Science Foundation Ireland ADAPT Research Centre, the workshop will help students navigate the Age of AI safely and successfully.
