LiU SAI - Scene for AI

LiU SAI – Scene for AI – is an arena in which we arrange lectures and events with a focus on AI, in the partnership with AI Sweden.

The aim is to promote the AI-related work being done both at Linköping University and in regional industry. The idea with Scene for AI is to generate interest and be a natural gathering place for everybody who is interested in AI, thereby stimulating collaborations both within the university, local businesses and with other regional national and international actors interested in AI.

This page will be updated continually with new events. Be sure to come back here regularly. All events will be open for academia, industry and the general public. However, the specific target groups, technical depth and language will vary from event to event.

All the events will be recorded and available to watch here afterwards.

Are you interested in participating, or curious about a subject that we haven't touched upon yet? Feel free to get in touch!

The rapid development in artificial intelligence means both great opportunities and significant challenges for individuals, companies and organizations as well as for society as a whole. To shed light on and discuss the development and its consequences, Linköping University invites you to a half day where national and international experts give their views on the possibilities and challenges of AI development.
