In 2018, the government developed a national AI strategy to maintain and develop Sweden's position as one of the most innovative countries in the world. But how is the strategy introduced and what can we learn from other countries that are leaders in the field?

With innovation in focus, we will during the conference show Sweden's power as an innovative AI nation. Through presentations and panel discussions, both national and international leaders from industry, the public sector and academia will give their views on the Swedish AI strategy, the AI ecosystem and its challenges. During the days we go in depth in health, mobility, energy, industry and democracy.
