Irish Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science

The 25th Irish Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science was recently hosted by the DIT School of Computer Science taking place at the DIT Grangegorman Campus on the 7-8th December 2017.

With regular conferences dating back to 1988, the AICS Conference is Ireland's primary forum for researchers with interests in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. While once a niche area, the fields of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, which encompass Data Analytics, Information Retrieval, and Machine Learning, are now at the forefront of Irish computing research and industry.
