The Nordic Probabilistic AI Summer School is crucial in educating the next generation of experts in deep technical aspects of AI/ML. It takes place every year for one week in a different part of Scandinavia: We started in Trondheim in 2019, then had one virtual school during the pandemic, moved to the University of Helsinki in 2022, and will now be organised and coordinated by NTNU for 2023, before we plan to go to Copenhagen in 2024.
This summer school will strengthen competencies within probabilistic AI among NTNU and international participants and foster international research cooperation. It further provides local industries access to an international audience of students, researchers and other industries and provides a common ground to discuss the topic and start new cooperations. Since the beginning of this event in 2019, the interest in the topic has increased considerably. The 2022-version of the school was planned for 150 participants, yet had more than 5 times as many applicants, who wanted to participate.
