This funding has enabled ADAPT researchers to create groundbreaking digital technologies in the fields of language technology, digital humanities, security technology, connected health, ethical innovations, crisis response and more. In pursuit of Philanthropic funding and collaborations the Centre has been mapping a set of AI use cases to domains of social impact. The use cases highlight significant problems that can be solved by one of more AI capabilities from ADAPT research. It is the Centres goal to continue to link with societal champions to address these challenges.
ADAPT’s strengths in both frontier and impact-driven research, as well as the breadth and diversity of transdisciplinary research, presents significant opportunities for collaboration across disciplines for greater impact as we strive to increase Ireland’s footprint in frontier research related to ICT and digital content technologies.
ADAPT’s research funding efforts are fully supported by a specialist pre- and post-award Research Development Team. If you would like to collaborate, please get in touch RDT@adaptcentre.ie
