Virtual Event: Paths to a career in AI

What is AI when it is made real? What do AI-professionals in Oslo actually do, and how did they get there? We have asked four professionals working with AI in one way or another to give us their view on what it means to have a career in AI, and what made them choose their own path.

In short, Sabrina (kolonial.no) will share some insights she has obtained working as a recruiter in the field, Julia (Inmeta Consulting) will talk about alternative pathways into an AI-centric career, Stephen (Elkjøp) will share his story on entering the field together with lessons learned and Arturo (Capgemini) will talk about how he transitioned from academia into the business world.

We are looking forward to an inspiring hour with multiple viewpoints on what AI is in practice. This is a great opportunity for us all to get some honest insight into a “hyped” topic, so we’ll reserve plenty of time for questions!

The talks will begin at 17:30 on October 13th. Conference link to this digital event will be made available to those with a reserved spot.
