Royal couples' enthusiasm for AI

Monday, October 17, 2022

The kings and queens of Sweden and the Netherlands visited Lindholmen Science Park and enjoyed a presentation about the Edge Learning Lab.

The royal couples visited Gothenburg for the day on Thursday, October 13, 2022, and went first to Lindholmen Science Park. There they were treated to presentations of several initiatives, including the team at the Edge Learning Lab. 

The focus for the day was on innovation and driving green technologies. 

Ebba Josefson Lindqvist led the presentation which showed how decentralized learning is used. The focus was on new possibilities, privacy solutions, and efficiencies that decentralized learning opens up. Queen Máxima asked questions and sparked discussion about how this technology reduces privacy risks, enables new collaborations, and makes more efficient use of existing infrastructure.

“We were happy to get a chance to present our work on decentralized learning to their majesties and the delegation. I described the concept of the technology and how our partners collaborated to build the Edge Learning Lab. Then the royals and delegation got to interact with our young researchers on automotive, space and cyber security applications. We are now looking forward to seeing what potential collaboration opportunities we may identify between Sweden and the Netherlands within AI.” Ebba Josefson Lindqvist, Project Manager Data Factory 


The whole delegation from both countries included, among others, Infrastructure Minister Tomas Eneroth, the Dutch Environment Minister Vivianne Heijnen, the chair of the municipal council Anneli Rhedin and Sten Tolgfors, governor of Västra Götaland county. 

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard behind the scenes to make this a successful and enjoyable day. Some of the material presented will be shared soon, so follow us for more updates.
