ADAPT is delighted to curate a programme of events for START: European Researchers’ Night at Trinity College Dublin on 30 September 2022.

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 AI Dilemma Café will be open for business from 5.00pm

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 in the former Science Gallery Dublin building on Pearse Street for this thought-provoking event.

More highlights from the ADAPT programme of events include:
