AI Competence for Sweden is the working name for developing a national distributed platform for increasing AI competence in Sweden, supported by the Swedish government. Umeå University is one of the universities participating in this initiative. Other are Chalmers, KTH, Örebro University, Linköping University, Lund University and Göteborg University. This page contains some of the activities organised in Umeå to increase knowledge about AI in society, and to make Umeå a strong node in the AI Competence for Sweden network.
The following are the main activities organised at Umeå University during 2019:
- Courses on AI for the industry and societal organisations
- Study Fridays with public events to increase knowledge and dialogue about AI
- Further development of existing education at Umeå University to include more AI
- Develop the local infrastructure for AI education, research and collaboration with society including labs, networks and projects, and the national platform for collaboration for AI Competence for Sweden
