Science in the Community Awesome AI & Brilliant Bodies

This is a past event

Join TechFest and iCAIRD for this free, drop-in, community event about technology and artificial intelligence.

Look around you... technology and artificial intelligence play a vital role in all of our lives, but in what ways are they being used to improve our lives?  

During this free, drop-in event, children of all ages and families cantry out hands-on activities which explore how technology, specifically technologies labelled “artificial intelligence” or AI can be used in medicine to benefit our health through quicker diagnosis and appropriate treatment of disease. 

Can you win against a piece of paper in a game of noughts and crosses? How quickly can you spot a bone fracture versus the AI? Have you ever tried to build a robot? Do you know the importance of the DNA code? Families attending can take part in all of these activities and more. 

This event is part of Explorathon 2022, Scotland’s celebration of research., supported by University of Aberdeen Researchers from the Industrial Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research in Digital Diagnostics(iCAIRD) and TechFest.
