      AI and Business Strategist

    The launch of chatGPT made artificial intelligence (AI), and in particular generative AI, the hottest topic of 2023. Everybody has an opinion about it, ranging from starstruck awe to existential fear. At the same time, authorities and business professionals alike predict that artificial intelligence will be the single most important factor in innovation and increased value-creation in the coming decade.


    In this talk, Elin guides the audience through the fog of hype and hysteria and explains how mathematics and statistics applied to large amounts of data can automate tasks and processes, completely change business models, redefine search and research, and fuel innovation of new products and services. She then invites the audience to reflect on the flip-sides of artificial intelligence, such as responsibility, accountability, discriminatory practices, cyber security, and sustainability.
