DIKU Business Club meeting for Executives and R&D staff

Tema: Artificial Intelligence - new center - new research - new services

This year's first meeting in DIKU Business Club will focus on a hot topic: the emergence of Artificial Intelligence in research and in society. AI is one of the Department's prioritized focus areas. A couple of research cases will be presented and the plans for establishing an AI Centre at University of Copenhagen will be further discussed.

We are working on a revision of our palette of services to DBC members  and will discuss these with the audience during the last 30 minutes of the meeting before proceeding to general networking and a light tapas meal.

The meeting is for Premium and Basic members of DIKU Business Club.
