AI Meetup

Artificial Intelligence,

Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!

Artificial Intelligence has made waves beyond tech-savvy circles. Depending on who you ask, it is seen as either a saviour for all of our problems or the last step towards humanity’s self-destruction.

At this Techfestival, more than 300 AI practitioners and enthusiasts are gathering to engage in a dialogue anchored in AI. We move beyond the dichotomy of ragnarok and utopia, and provide the stage for focused talks on AI. Our mission is to connect, grow and inspire the AI community in the Nordics through interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and collaboration.

Come and experience inspirational storytelling and networking, interactive panels, and so much more!
