Master Thesis Program

AI Sweden’s master thesis program invites students to sit at AI Sweden’s offices, use our resources and get support from data scientists and other employees. In previous cohorts we have welcomed students writing their theses with partners including Centiro, RISE, Zenseact, SLU, Recorded Future, Volvo Cars, and AstraZeneca, as well as with AI Sweden. It is a great opportunity for organizations to team up with the future workforce.

Drawing upon the valuable insights shared by students and the wealth of experience gained from previous program cycles, we aim to provide support to the new cohort of students in some of the tasks that are well-known for being commonly overlooked. We invite the students to a series of workshops (once a month from February to April) to help them develop their soft skills, such as giving a talk and writing a master thesis. They will be welcomed into our offices for the period of their thesis work and we will offer a quiet space, access to our infrastructure and technical support, not to mention a friendly environment.

About the program
Students who enter the program work on the topics that matter most to partners and sit at one of our locations. They benefit from events and seminars from AI Sweden experts during the spring focused on growing their soft skills and providing extra support on common struggles, such as the writing process and defining and sticking to the research question that they want to address in their thesis work. Last but not least, they have access to the Data Factory, the Edge Learning Lab and DGX A100, and other resources.

In spring 2022 the cohort welcomed students from Chalmers and SLU, and partners including Zenseact, SLU, Unibap, Volvo, and AstraZeneca. Some of the dissertations picked up on challenges and created greater awareness within topics such as cyber security, both at partners and AI Sweden.

"This is a great example of a low risk, low effort initiative, where organizations can explore and develop new areas." - Kim Henriksson, Project Manager at AI Sweden’s Edge Lab
