Have you ever heard about Chrome? Well, Kasper was one of those Googlers who build it and, together with a few people from the Google-team, he has now decided to do the same thing for Internet of Things (IoT) devices as they did for browsers with Chrome. Kasper will introduce us to their new IoT-platform and the related coding language Toit.

– Jacob Høy Berthelsen, founder of Enversion A/S
Enversion A/S is on a mission to create a better health care system through big data and artificial intelligence (AI).

– Geeta Schmidt, CEO of Humio
Geeta will introduce us to the magic world of logging, which for many of us is hard to relate to. What is logging? And why is it important? Logging keeps software secure and running, so as a citizen we only notice when logging is NOT working.

– Mads Voigt Hingelberg, CEO of BigData of Innovation Lab
Everybody is talking about Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), but who knows what it really is? Mads will give us an introduction to these fluffy buzzwords in a personal and compelling way, that makes the concept more tangible and relatable.

– WHO CAN ATTEND –

The event is for everyone curious about tech. No matter skill set, age and background.
 
We find that tech talks normally is filled with buzzwords and abbreviations which makes it difficult to understand. But is it really necessary? Do you have to explain artificial intelligence with words like neural networks and algorithms or can it be explained in everyday words. We think so!
 
We believe that complex tech topics can be explained in general terms, so non-tech people also understand the message. We also think it is necessary to include more people into the world of tech magic to drive a sustainable implementation and utilisation of technology.
