#9 In AI we trust: GPT, the EU AI act and the pursuit of creating ethical and responsible AI
With the explosion of new AI applications enabled by GPT and other generative models, ensuring ethical and responsible AI has never been as important as now. But where does a business start and what is most critical to get right? Are businesses even equipped to ensure that models stay aligned with ethics and human values? It’s time for businesses to review their compliance, especially with EU’s AI act on it’s way to be launched. We invited Anna Felländer, founder of Anch.AI for a very interesting and important conversation.
#8 Intro to Digital Twins: Circularity, product life cycles and the art of efficient data management
NASA might have been first out in 1960 referring to a concept of Digital Twins, but it took a few more decades for the term to get widespread recognition. We invited Darya Botkina, a PhD researcher of Digital Twins at KTH in Stockholm, for a talk on why Digital Twins are a big deal and how they can help industries accelerate their development, operational efficiency and sustainability efforts. We ended up with a tribute to data.

#7 2022 in tech: Crypto crashes, ChatGPT, brain computer interfaces and what’s ahead
We made it through 2022. A year of ambitious cyberhacks, the fall of crypto titans, the fall of the digital public square, a new level of natural language processing, the evolution of brain computer interfaces and realisation of the metaverse hype. What now? Barbara and Martyna sat down to reflect on the roller coaster of 2022 and try to predict what's up next in 2023.
#6 Part 2: Hacks to cybersecurity: Creating safety in digital worlds ... is hard?
We've lived and made ourselves comfortable in the world of wide web and other digital worlds for years, yet we still lack the basic knowledge on how to protect our identities and organizations systems in these worlds. Are we just plain lazy or is there another reason behind this? We continue the discussion from previous episode together with Johan Bergelin, founding partner at Seventy to look at some of the biggest cyberattacks to date, and ways of protecting ourselves online.Sources:- SVD: https://www.svd.se/a/y661ne/hakan-buskhe-i-ny-rapport-cybersakerheten-i-sverige-halkar-efter- 10 things: https://www.lepide.com/blog/ten-ways-to-improve-data-security/- LinkedIn Hack: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_LinkedIn_hack- NotPetya Cyberattack: https://www.wired.com/story/notpetya-cyberattack-ukraine-russia-code-crashed-the-world/- Darknet Diaries podcast: https://darknetdiaries.com/- The Lazarus Heist: https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-57520169- WannaCry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WannaCry_ransomware_attack- Stuxnet: https://www.wired.com/2014/11/countdown-to-zero-day-stuxnet/www.seventyagency.com
#6 Part 1: Road to resilience: Building a resilient business in globalized economies
Technology and the globalized economy have created an illusion of never ending growth and prosperity, but recent geopolitical trends have shown cracks in infrastructures, supply chains and security. We sat down with Johan, founding partner at Seventy, to discuss what businesses should keep in mind and how they should approach a new fragile globalized environment.
#5 Is the future voice based?: Interfaces, use cases and security of voice technologies
Voice technologies have been around for ages, but it's grown into something far bigger and more complex than the automated answering machines that barely handles simple commands. We invited Carl Dehlin from voice tech company Conversy to talk about how industries can leverage voice biometrics and speech technologies to create new interfaces, security solutions and experiences.
