Personal privacy vs. public security : Panel Discussion

Across the world, We can see clear developments with more data and increasingly advanced ways of analyzing these data patterns. But unfortunately, we can only set the limits for what can be monitored just by our imagination and further creating laws (not by technology). Today there are camera systems that can follow the slightest movement and even analyze behaviors. But also the data we ourselves leave behind on social media or other places on the net can be analyzed in a way that has not been possible before. How will this change our view of personal privacy? Where is the limit for what we are prepared to accept for a safer society?

You all are cordially invited for this very interesting panel discussion, moderated by Fredrik Hofflander, Head of Connected Solutions (Data Science and Artificial Intelligence)

Rise of conversational AI chatbots : Short Seminar

A recent study suggests that consumer buying pattern is changing. People now prefer to interact with the business in real time while making their purchases over any other medium of communication. In order to dive more and more consumer interaction, it is becoming increasingly important for every sector to initiate real-time conversations with the help of AI.

With the help of technologies such as natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning, real-time conversations between conversational AI chatbots and consumers can increase to a great extent. Earlier, a human had to be constantly present for carrying out real-time communications with customers. The best thing about this technology is that the interaction gets better as users use the bot.

Consumers like information to be made available to them quickly at the tap of a button or in a single click. They can easily turn to competitors when they are frustrated due to the unavailability of information quickly. If the competitors provide users the experience they are looking for, it can negatively impact your business. The most common complaints include an inability to navigate through the website, not finding information regarding the business details, phone number, hours of operation, etc. Another factor that drives away users is when they can’t find solutions to simple queries.

If you want to learn more about chatbots, then you are very welcome to join us. Prajit Datta, AI Research Scientist from ÅF Pöyry will host this seminar to take you through the developmental journey of conversational AI.

Will AI take my job? : Panel Discussion

About 35% of all current jobs are at high risk of computerisation over the following 20 years, according to a study by researchers at Oxford University and Deloitte. Jobs have, as long as mankind been around, always been replaced by tools, machines and automation. This has always been in a speed that we have been able to manage. So why are so many people worried now? Is AI just a hype or will AI replace us all?

You all are cordially invited for this very interesting panel discussion, moderated by Fredrik Hofflander, Head of Connected Solutions (Data Science and Artificial Intelligence)

Will food be served? – Yes, refreshments are waiting for you.

CPH – Privacy Online – by Human & Legal Solutions

Join us for this event to get human and legal perspectives on the question of what is private in an online world.

2018 was a year of technology giants standing in line for media scandals about their dealings with our privacy. So let’s talk about Privacy in an Online World as computers, smartphones and the digital world play an ever bigger part in our lifes.

What is online privacy even and is Big Brother watching you as George Orwell once predicted or maybe more like is Alexa listening? What does it mean to our society, the way we will be living and the questions we’ll be asking? How could one work to ensure privacy in the future if we at all should?

All those could be questions, but join us to find out when we have invited some great speakers from the Faculties of Law, Humanities and Theology to elaborate on their perspectives on the subject.

The speakers are:

• Sille Obelitz Søe, Postdoc at “Don’t Take it Personal” at Department of Information Studies, Faculty of Humanities

• Henrik Udsen, Professor at Centre for Information and Innovation Law, Faculty of Law.

• Michael Green, Postdoc at Centre for Privacy Studies, Faculty of Theology

• Mads Vestergaard, Ph.D at Centre for Information and Bubble Studies at Department of Media, Cognition and Communication, Faculty of Humanities

Tech & Law Breakfast @ Copenhagen University

The first Tech & Law Breakfast this year focused on “Legal implications of Big Data in Danish Healthcare”.

Mette Hartlev and Katharina Eva Ó Cathaoir presented their research on personalized medicine in the welfare state.

  • How is “the personal” understood and established when genomic data are applied and exchanged in Danish health care? 
  • Which collectivities—e.g. species, ethnicity, nation, health care services, and ultimately the welfare state— are implied in constituting “the personal”?
