The event saw over a hundred ADAPT members come together to engage with and present our research to the wider ADAPT community, to showcase and celebrate the research and academics that are helping to shape the future through AI.
The event was opened with an Introduction from ADAPT Director, Prof. Vinny Wade. Speakers from across ADAPT presented their research over four sessions throughout the day, with engaged audience Q&A after each. DFKI Scientific Director of MLT, Prof. Josef van Genabith delivered a Keynote presentation on Self-supervised Neural Machine Translation (NMT).
