We will also talk about how Schibsted uses AI to empower its brands. A recent example is OpenAI Whisper, which enables exciting applications like video subtitling, interview transcription or podcast analysis.

Where? Västra Järnvägsgatan 21, Stockholm
Snacks, food and drinks are provided 🍻🍕🍭
👨🏫 Talk #1 “How Schibsted protects our journalists and customers” – by Ralph Benton, Chief Security and Information Security Officer at Schibsted
Ralph will walk us through how Schibsted is continuously working on improving the security for employees and customers. With close to a billion monthly visits on Schibsted websites, such as Aftonbladet, SvD, Blocket and Lendo, ensuring that all the Schibsted services and products are secured is crucial. Making sure the security and safety of journalists, both physically and digitally, is equally important, especially when it comes to protecting the journalistic work digitally and on the ground in high-risk areas such as the current war zone in Ukraine.
👨🏫 Talk #2 “Large Language Models in AI – How OpenAI’s Whisper enables real-world applications in Schibsted” – by Daniel Pleus, Data Scientist Lead at Schibsted
In the last few years, large language models revolutionised modern AI. One of the most recent examples is OpenAIs Whisper which massively improved automatic speech recognition (ASR). Daniel will provide insight into how Whisper is not only a technically impressive model but also a great enabler for real-world use cases. He will present various exciting projects from Schibsted, such as interview subtitles, transcription and podcast analysis.
After each session we will have a Q&A session.
The meetup will take place on the 15th of December in our office in Stockholm. Please note that the number of places is limited and that the event will be held in English.
