Track 1 – National strategy
Innovation plays an important role in how competitive a nation stays over time - and it is important for the quality of life for a nation's citizens. Being one of the most innovative countries in the world, the Swedish national strategy for driving innovation is of special interest. Will Sweden stay competitive and innovative also in the future?
On the same note we are also in - what many express as - a global race of AI. Therefore we will have a closer look at the AI strategy of two of the world leading nations within the field - Canada and Japan - and compare them to what is happening in the Nordics.

Track 3 – Transforming healthcare
AI can lead to improved healthcare and increase the productivity and efficiency of the healthcare sector. It has the potential to improve the day-to-day life of healthcare practitioners, letting them spend more time caring for patients and saving more lives. But we also have to ask ourselves if we focus enough on keeping people healthy, or if some things need to improve? And could it then be done with the help of AI?

Track 6 – Our future democracy (closing discussion)
All of the changes and innovation happening in different sectors will also transform the society we live and work in. From new services and products to completely new ways of doing things and moving in cities. So how does this new world look and what do we need to be extra cautious (or curious) about? In this track we will discuss what the impact of Artificial Intelligence really can have on society - and the future of democracy.
