How are we affected by AI – now and in the future?

Elements of AI – The national initiative to educate more than 1% of the Swedish population on AI

Many agree that Artificial Intelligence will transform our society, but only a handful of people understand the fundamentals. During the spring, prominent actors from all industries have acknowledged this gap and pledged to take on the challenge to educate their personell on the basics of AI. 

AI Innovation of Sweden, AI Competence for Sweden and Vinnova, together with the Stockholm School of Economics course 'Global challenges', invites you to the launch for the free MOOC course Elements of AI.

  • Fredrik Heintz, AI researcher at Linköping University, will speak on what AI really means and how it affects us now and in the future.
  • Karin Sevedag Tell, Director of Communications at Vinnova, talk briefly on Vinnova’s mobilization to strengthen Sweden’s position on AI.
  • Annie Lindmark, Innovation Management at Vinnova, will cast light on common myths influencing the public’s notion of AI. Annie will also advise on how to start your own journey with AI and showcase projekts from Vinnova’s portfolio.
  • Jan Smith, Computer Science and Engineering at Chalmers, will speak on further education for organizations and companies offered within the national initiative AI Competence for Sweden.

Time: Wednesday 15 May, 10-11 am.
