“Artificial intelligence and language models are central technologies and tools for all businesses, but for Schibsted they hit the heart of what we do. It’s about the production and distribution of digital content, and it’s about enabling technologies for all other areas of society. That is why Schibsted is concerned with artificial intelligence, and that is why we are involved in this initiative which aims to strengthen cooperation and knowledge about artificial intelligence in the Nordic region,” says Schibsted CEO Kristin Skogen Lund.
The conference is part of a series of collaborative conferences in the Nordic countries. The Oslo conference was organised by Schibsted, The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO), SINTEF, the University of Oslo and Oslo Science City, in cooperation with Kaya Partners.
The conference invited select participants from technology-leading businesses and research environments, the public sector and political leadership.
Joining Kristin at the conference were Schibsted’s CDTO and Board chair of Norw.AI, Sven Størmer Thaulow and Agnes Stenbom, Head of IN/LAB (Schibsted) and Industrial PhD Candidate at KTH to talk about the Importance of Nordic Large Language Models as well as Schibsted Public Policy Manager Anna Sööder joining the panel on the impact of AI regulation.
“It was a gathering of very relevant participants, great presentations that gave a good overview and starting point for further joint initiatives. I was very pleased with the event and the collaboration leading up to it!” says Kristin Skogen Lund.
