AI Summit 2018 – How AI will benefit humanity and society

We face new global challenges. Together we can share a vision of a sustainable and environmentally friendly world where new modern technology is the solution to these challenges, benefiting people, societies and the future generations. China and Sweden are nations at the forefront of technological development.

Welcome to be part of the discussion and the solution!

Getting insight to become successful in AI. How do we build a sustainable world where technology works with us and not against us?

On November 19, Stockholm will host this year’s AI Summit. Key people from industries, institutions and politics will meet and give their views on artificial intelligence. You are welcome to an update on what´s being done, what should be done and what the new technology will mean.

Artificial Intelligence is a technique that will change the world. As with all new technological transformations, such as the art of printing, electricity and the Internet, it’s hard to overlook the changes that AI will mean in the long term.

Artificial intelligence means new opportunities. Better and more efficient healthcare, school and community service. A new generation of more effective and better products. A technology that will be of great benefit to the world.

But artificial intelligence will also mean an overwhelming change for both working life and society. The communities and companies that will not adapt to this new
technology will have a big risk of falling behind. At worst, it may mean that the companies that won’t adapt to artificial intelligence will disappear.
