Inspirational Days & Master Thesis Awards
Open AI Days
Since the AI Lab opened in 2017, we have organized several Open days and Inspirational Days. These are dissemination events that connect people affiliated with the Norwegian Open AI Lab and others interested in AI, with a goal of increasing knowledge and competences. The events consist of lectures and case presentations, aimed at informing companies and organizations about the potential benefits of applying AI in their operations.
These events take place twice a year; during the spring and fall semester, and have a master's thesis focus: In spring, companies and organizations can pitch potential master's thesis topics for cooperation with students. In fall, we organize the best AI thesis awards.
These events provide an arena for connecting with researchers, students and practioners, and exchanging experiences and ideas regarding the many potential applications of AI.
