There is a global shortage of skills in the field of AI and countries world wide are competing to attract the best AI talent. How do we ensure a strong Swedish ecosystem that attracts the best talent both nationally and internationally? And what concrete initiatives are already underway?
Join us on February 7, as we open the doors to the second edition of AI Sweden Talent Day!
We will discuss the success factors behind talent attraction, how to strengthen the attractiveness of the Swedish ecosystem, what we can learn from the best internationally, and dive into current and new talent programs that our partners can take part of.
AI Sweden Talent Day is especially for organizations looking to recruit more talent and those of you who are responsible for recruitment.
When: February 7, 2022
Competition for talent
We will begin by examining the current landscape of talent - what does the competition for talent actually look like, what are the real-world implications of a lack of AI competence? And what are countries, ecosystems and organizations doing about it? We will look for inspiration abroad and learn from one of the best AI ecosystems worldwide - Canada.
