In-person Event:

A Leader's guide to AI

November 14, 4:30 PM -6:30 PM

Epicenter Helsinki (Mikonkatu 9)

Event Details

The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) and the changes it drives in the technology landscape of businesses are on par with the advent of the Internet or smart phones. In the near future everything that can, will have AI embedded in it in some form and its impact on business models and the way companies operate will be seismic. Investing in AI technology, therefore, is perhaps the single most important area of decision-making business leaders will face over the next few years. However, there currently is a lot of hype, uncertainty, and questions that business leaders are facing when assessing AI’s transformative potential to their business. 


We invite you to join your peers at this cross-sector event on Tuesday 14th of November, from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM at Epicenter Helsinki.


Jesse McCrosky from Thoughtworks, a leading global technology consultancy, will guide us to see beyond the recent hype in generative AI, and paint a picture of the needed ingredients for building robust, socially responsible AI systems for your organization. 


The discussion will continue with a panel of industry leaders including Mikko Rekola, CTO of Bolt.Works, Samuli Hänninen, Head of Vaisala Xweather, and Susanna Flaherty, Country Manager and Head of Data Access & Partnerships, Global Database Studies, Real World Solutions at IQVIA on how they have applied, scaled, and commercialized AI, where they think AI adds real value and what are the slip-ups to avoid. Jaakko LempinenHead of Customer Experience at Yle will also share insights into their newly-introduced principles of responsible AI, which will provide guidance for the use and development of artificial intelligence throughout their organization.

Together, we will look into the future of AI and what the possible impacts on your business could be. We look forward to seeing you there!
