“My work focuses on evidence-based AI policy guidance and encompasses reports such as AI Policy for Competitiveness and Drivers of AI adoption, Irene says. At my presentation, Drivers of AI adoption, I will talk about how today, most companies see that AI can create new business opportunities while few succeed in delivering business benefits. During the talk, I will summarize the latest research on driving forces to accelerate AI use in companies and the barriers companies see.”

As a little preview for the conference Irene has made a short summary of the AI adoption drivers.

Stimulate new cooperation in software technology by making research and project results visible and available

At STEW we want to make research and project results visible and available to stimulate new cooperation in software technology. To achieve this, we put a lot of focus on networking and creating possibilities for the participants to meet new people, from different industries, academia and the public sector, from all of Sweden. It’s a conference for creating new ideas and new cooperation. We do this by arranging several breaks, keeping the maximum number of participators limited and not to forget, the annual STEW dinner on the evening of day one. We do our best to help the participants to meet new people and every year we hear of new cooperation and projects as a result of meetings at STEW.

To summarize, by participating in STEW you will get to meet people from different industry sectors, public sector and academia, participate in interactive public dialogue and not least listen to inspiring presentations.
