CPH – High Tech Summit – by DTU

High Tech Summit

Be inspired. Get connected.

October 30 – 31 2019

Get ready to gain new knowledge at the leading Nordic high-tech fair.


Themes of 2019:

Industry 4.0 & Robotics

The fourth industrial revolution has arrived, making smart factories and cyber-physical systems the new norm. Novel concepts for automation are an essential part of Industry 4.0.

Big Data & Artificial Intelligence

Big Data refers to the analysis of large data sets to reveal patterns and trends, creating new business opportunities and smarter societal solutions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next generation of computerization. Big Data and AI are becoming increasingly integrated. While potential benefits are high, solutions need to address concerns over privacy and security.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things enables physical devices to collect and exchange data in an automated way. Typically, the devices are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network conductivity. The HTS 2018 will devote special attention to food and health cases and also to safe, ethical and socially responsible IoT solutions

Sustainable Energy, Environment & Climate

The main theme for High Tech Summit is digitization and digital transformation, which are the corner stones in DTU’s research. This year’s special focus area for High Tech Summit will be sustainability with a focus on energy, environment and climate. At DTU, we have an extensive focus on the area and High Tech Summit is a natural place to showcase it.

Business Inside Technology

While new potent technology is the very visible side of the fourth industrial revolution, innovative thinking within a given company is just as important. Corporations looking to get onboard Industry 4.0 need to assure that their organization is ready for the digital transformation.


The fourth industrial revolution not only calls for new solutions within existing companies, but also promise vast opportunities for creating new companies tailor made for the digital future.

For the Global Goals

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out the biggest global challenges such as health threats, food and water scarcity, discrimination and poverty. Technological development in collaboration between research and business is key to meeting these goals.

London Calling – LegalGeek 2019

Nordic Legal Tech couldn’t make LegalGeek London this year but we have one of our trusty members reporting on this increasingly important event. Torsten Torpe, head of Legal Tech Innovation at Bech-Bruun, gives us a run down of Bech-Bruun’s presentation at the conference and some comments on the gig generally.

Discussing best practice for AI adoption at LegalGeek

At this year’s LegalGeek conference, we were invited by Luminance (an AI software provider) to talk about how you actually get started using Artificial Intelligence. Being among the early adopting law firms of AI, we were asked to share our experience and pinpoint the dos and don’ts. 

Although vendors and technologists often tend to claim the opposite, getting started with AI and technology in general isn’t easy. Our vast experience shows that it requires a strong buy-in from the top management. A point that is as surprising as it is constructive. We discussed what strong management buy-in means in Bech-Bruun and how we have succeeded in establishing a legal tech innovation unit with direct report to the top management.

CPH – Evaluation Seminar for PhD student Léonard Van Rompaey: Legal Disruption by Artificial Intelligence – by University of Copenhagen

All interested are kindly invited to participate in Léonard’s evaluation seminar of his PhD-project, entitled:

Legal Disruption by Artificial Intelligence: a Study of the Incompatibilities Between Law and Robots

A short, updated description of the project is available here.

“My research focuses on artificial intelligence’s legal disruption. Where does law fail to regulate robots? With very little deployment, we are already identifying legal challenges to the incorporation of artificial intelligence and autonomy in healthcare, transportation, warfare and many other areas of human activity. I try to identify and better understand the common denominators to the symptomatic disruptions that appear in various legal fields. The first common element is artificial intelligence, and I explore the exceptionalism of this technology in comparison to previous innovative disruptions. The second common element is the law itself.

I try to expose law as a deeply anthropocentric concept, using tools from cognitive neurosciences, behavioural economics and theory of law. When we try to regulate robots as objects (as we do with cars) the law fails to acknowledge the agency of the robot, which intervenes actively—not randomly or predictably—on the outcome from the action. When we try to regulate robots as agents, tensions and abrasions appear because of the human nature of law, a tool made by and for human beings and curtailed to constraining our behaviour. To address those theoretical and conceptual questions of incompatibility between the law and robotics is foundational to find answers to the symptomatic occurrences of AI legal disruption.”

The seminar takes place on Thursday 6 June 2019 from 10:00-12:00, meeting room 6B-4-04, Njalsgade 76, 4th floor, DK-2300 Copenhagen S 

External commentator at the seminar is: Bryan Druzin (CUHK)

Supervisor of the project, Hin-Yan Liu, will act as chair of the seminar.

All interested parties are welcome!

The seminar will be held in English

CPH – 5th IBA Global Entrepreneurship Conference: The Nordic Model – Rising up to the Global Challenge – by the International Bar Association

The Nordic Region is known for the so-called Nordic model (or Nordic capitalism), in which comprehensive welfare states and progressive societies go hand in hand with free market and trade, and provide for a high standard of living. The Nordics also are renown for housing leading players in numerous business areas, such as food, high tech, medical / life sciences, design and oil. Last not least, the region stands as a model for sustainable development and
for work-life balance.

To facilitate continued innovation and growth of start-ups Nordic governments strive to support entrepreneurship. EU’s Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) 2018 (https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/desi) has Denmark as the front runner followed by Sweden and Finland. Headed by Denmark the Nordic countries form the most digital region in the EU. Copenhagen is, thus, the perfect venue to explore how digitalisation already has disrupted and will further affect various business sectors – and for asking what role the human factor will have in the post-digitalised business world and society.

As in the past, the Conference will combine lively panel discussions lead by entrepreneurs and industry speakers with interactive workshops on practice areas of general interest.

Topics will include:

  • Data protection and data security / hacking
  • AI / Machine
  • Blockchain technology / crypto currencies
  • Trends and innovation in the M&A process and in the funding of SME’s
  • Governance and structural issues for innovative and fast growing closely held companies
  • How disruption and AI will improve the life of lawyers.

The legendary ‘Closely Held’ spirit and social events will provide, once again, for an unforgettable networking experience.

CPH – Brug af Kunstig Intelligens – Retlige Udfordringer og Muligheder – by Kammeradvokaten

Kurset giver et overblik over de juridiske rammer for udviklingen og brugen af A.I.-løsninger. Fokus er navnlig på den nye databeskyttelsesforordnings krav til sådanne løsninger.


På kurset i brugen af kunstig intelligens får du et grundlæggende overblik over mulighederne og de juridiske rammer for brug af A.I. i den offentlige og private sektor.

Du får bl.a.:

  • Indsigt i hvordan de forskellige former for A.I. fungerer
  • Overblik over A.I.-løsningers anvendelse i praksis i dag
  • Konkrete værktøjer og metoder for indbygget databeskyttelse ved udvikling og brug af kunstig intelligens (privacy by design)
  • Anbefalinger for til udarbejdelse af konsekvensanalyser (DPIA’s) for A.I.-løsninger


Kunstig intelligens – eller Artificial Intelligence (”A.I.”) – anvendes allerede i dag i vidt omfang i mange forskellige sammenhænge. Teknologien står over for et gennembrud og både danske virksomheder og offentlige myndigheder investerer massivt i A.I. til brug for alt fra f.eks. ansættelse af medarbejdere, kontrol og snydbekæmpelse samt forberedelse eller afgørelse af sager.

Selvom teknologien har et enormt potentiale, møder udviklingen og brugen af A.I.-løsninger dog også retlige udfordringer. Løsningerne kræver ofte et enormt datagrundlag for at kunne fungere (big data) og vil typisk indebære behandling af personoplysninger. Navnlig skal databeskyttelse tænkes ind i løsningerne fra start i overensstemmelse med reglerne om privacy by design i den nye databeskyttelsesforordning. Offentlige myndigheder skal tillige være opmærksom på at overholde de almindelige forvaltningsretlige grundsætninger såsom hjemmelsprincippet samt forvaltningslovens sagsbehandlingsregler m.v.

Kurset giver et overblik over de juridiske rammer for udviklingen og brugen af A.I.-løsninger. Fokus er navnlig på den nye databeskyttelsesforordnings krav til sådanne løsninger.


  • Overblik over de forskellige former for A.I. – stærk/svag A.I., data mining, deep learning, neurale netværk, prediktiv analyse til at forudsige adfærd etc.
  • Hvor anvendes A.I. i praksis i dag hos offentlige myndigheder og private virksomheder, f.eks. til tilsyn, snyd- og svigbekæmpelse, markedsføring, afgørelse eller tilrettelæggelse af sager, ansættelser samt analyseformål m.v.?
  • Hvad er mulighederne for at træffe fuldautomatiske afgørelser med brug af A.I.?
  • Privacy by design og konsekvensanalyse (DPIA): Hvilke særlige databeskyttelsesretlige udfordringer skal håndteres i en A.I.-løsning, herunder bl.a.
    • at de grundlæggende principper om formålsbegrænsning og dataminimering overholdes
    • at der ikke sker ulovlig forskelsbehandling af de registrerede (indbygget bias i beslutningsgrundlaget)
    • at de registrerede og andre kan få indsigt i beslutningsgrundlaget og ”logikken” i løsningen (transparens og systemdokumentation) – det såkaldte ”black box”-problem
  • Hvordan føres tilsyn med algoritmerne?
