SNS Tylösand Summit 2019: The AI Revolution

time and place

Wednesday 21 August 2019, 09:00–17:00

Artificial Intelligence (AI) already affects many aspects of business, society and our personal lives – and in the longer perspective its impact is likely to be radical. How should companies set strategies, governments design policies, and people plan their lives in this new setting?

Every summer SNS gathers academic researchers, leaders in politics, business, the public sector and civil society for a one-day summit in Tylösand. This year, the theme is artificial intelligence (AI).

Among the speakers

Susan Athey is the Economics of Technology Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Business. In 2007, she became the first woman to receive the John Bates Clark medal, one of the world’s most prestigious awards in economics. She has also worked 10+ years as a consultant at Microsoft Research. One area of her research focuses on how machine learning can be applied to public policy decisions.
