NORA is a Norwegian collaboration between 8 universities, 3 university colleges and 4 research institutes within artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and robotics. Through their collaborative research projects, education programmes and start-up activities, the NORA consortium is strengthening Norwegian research, education, and innovation within these fields.
“We are very much looking forward to this partnership as we are always seeking to connect with experts within fields such as new technology, green economy, innovation and so on. This year one of our keynote speakers will participate also in NORA’s very own conference which is a great pleasure to us that we can share our resources and connections to a wider audience and network. We also very much look forward to having the CEO of NORA and Inga Strümke, one of the leading researchers within artificial intelligence in Norway, speak at Norway Summit. Artificial intelligence is an important topic that needs to be discussed also amongst industries and leaders that do not yet use this type of technology. We look forward to gaining some insight from the experts at NORA.” – Benedicte Westre Skog, Managing Director, Norway Summit.
The Norway Summit conference, which is being held 8th of June in Stavanger, Norway, focuses on the intersection of new technology, innovation, and economy. Here, the Grandmasters of business meet to discuss the next move.
Klas Pettersen, the CEO of NORA, who will also be a speaker at this year’s summit, states “Artificial intelligence is the most important technology of our time and the collaboration with Norway Summit is highly inspiring for NORA. I am really looking forward to see what will happen when we put NORA’s world leading experts and innovators within AI together with the world-leading thinkers, innovators, investors, premise providers and decision makers of the conference. I hope this will lead to new, interesting ideas and projects. Especially, I think representatives from the more than 30 AI start-up companies in NORA.startup will enjoy this opportunity.”
