The first AI Innovation of Sweden Partner week is a wrap!

AI Innovation of Swedens has now had it´s first Partner week, a four day online conference dedicated to our Partners. We broadcasted live every morning and each day had different themes with presentations and panel discussions. A four day conference that won't be our last!

We started off this week with a solid agenda and high expectations. The topic for the first day was "Projects" where we presented The Swedish Space data lab, The Baltic Seabird Hackathon and our projects within NLP. The week continued with presentation of our education-portfolio, updates on the Data Factory and discussion about legal aspects of handling data from our Legal coordinators. At the end of the week we focused on what our partners are doing in their AI-projects and what they want to do in the future. We ended up with a presentation of our new Start-up program and talked about the next step within our organization for accelerating Swedish AI.

It has been really great days and a big thanks to all our amazing partners for sharing your competence and ideas! We are happy to have you on board and thank you all for listening!
