Data Science & AI Day – November 28

Hosted by Daniel Gillblad and Sverker Janson, RISE SICS.

Data Science & AI Day explores the ongoing global paradigm shift to smart datadriven technologies and applications in all industries. Speakers from leading industry and academia present the latest developments in machine learning, scalable platforms, and AI, and their implications for next generation smart datadriven products, services, production, and automation.


Multicore Day – November 29

Hosted by Tobias Wrigstad, Uppsala University

The 11th annual Multicore Day focuses on possible futures of parallel programming for multicores with new programming tools and new versions of old programming tools, adapting to new hardware. We will also learn about how hardware evolves for performance and energy-efficiency.

This year we will hear — among other things — about how Rust will make the future more safe, and how the recently developed Java 9 aims to do the same!
