How to navigate the new data landscape

The last few years there has been a lot of talk about AI and the utilization of data. It has become very evident recently with the arrival of ChatGPT. However, the road for businesses to put AI into use has not been straightforward and digitalization continues to be a challenge. Bengt will discuss both pitfalls and success stories that he has experienced in data driven projects

He has been working with Big Data and Machine learning since 2009 within areas such as media, finance, manufacturing and vehicles. He has also been an instructor in the field of AI, aiding a large number of students and professionals into the fields of data analysis, machine learning and digitalization.


Will AI take my job?

The elephant in the room from a tech person's perspective. We're never going back to a world without AI again. People in all kinds of jobs are either excited or scared of how AI will change their job. Some fear it will even take their job. And they could be right! The largest source code service on the web, GitHub, has an AI service that writes code better than many programmers do. Lars works for Elastisys, a company that essentially manages servers for others. Will it take his job? Let's find out, together!

The golden age of tinkering

It's a fantastic time to be alive. The software, tools, parts, and services available for free or at a minimal cost open a world of opportunities for hobbyists and tinkerers everywhere. In this presentation, I'll showcase some of the most exciting possibilities, and highlight projects achievable in just a short span of time without breaking the bank.

The best part is that it's not just for fun: while we're diving into the thrill of creation, we're also tapping into resources that can spark solutions to some of today's biggest challenges.
