Most events organized in Finland focusing on AI are currently revolving around evangelizing AI as a promised technology for everything.

Don't worry this event will do that as well! In addition to this the "Road to the Promised Land of AI" is an event where the organizers will break down the myths behind AI-projects and give you concrete suggestions, ideas, tools and solutions on how to take advantage of AI in your organization.

We do this by bringing together the pioneers and absolute experts of the AI, ML and DL field in Finland to give you a holistic and broken down point-of-view on the days topics.
