ADAPT's AI Dilemma Café returns for European Researchers' Night 2023

People discussing Artificial Intelligence at the AI Dilemma Café

At the AI Dilemma Café we will be exchanging coffee for chats about people’s interactions with AI.

Location: Douglas Hyde Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2

Date: 29 September 2023

Time: 16.00 – 20.00

What will it be like to live in a cashless society? What makes a city “smart”? How does AI impact democracy? 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.
