Webinar: Artificial Intelligence in Practice

We have invited expert and researcher in Artificial Intelligence, Erik David Johnson to give an online talk about his research and give in-practice examples of how Danish companies use AI today – illustrated by theory, cases, and live-coding.

In this talk, Erik will initially shortly introduce his research and thereafter go through different aspects of what AI is and isn’t, deflate the hype and inspire innovation regarding the possibilities and challenges that AI will give us in the future – including some of the data ethical challenges.

 

Hereafter, Erik David Jonson will present several specific, practical examples of how he, during his professional career, has used AI as an Architect, visionary, and project manager to gain concrete business advantages for his clients.

 

Lastly, an AI agent will be live-coded to play computer games, to illustrate central, pedagogical points involving what it takes to have success with AI-projects.

 

Join a trip from philosophy to business-application – from theory to practice, when Erik tells about his research and practical experiences with Artificial Intelligence.

What You’ll Learn

You get insights into AI research which has been validated by Berkeley University, and learn about AI in practice from use cases, where general pitfalls become apparent. Finally, your learnings are tested through a live-coding session.

Target Audience

This talk is relevant for everyone interested in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and business applications. So, if you want to see through the AI-hype, maybe become the “hype-killer” who takes the AI discussions down to informed practical solutions, then this talk is for you.

Registration is closed
