Through the #DiscussAI programme, ADAPT researchers seek to engage communities and individuals across the country in conversations that raise and answer questions and generate ideas for new research.

What is the aim of #DiscussAI Think-Ins?


These interactive collaborations are a method used to discuss concerns about topics regarding AI on the individual and society.
