Today, more and more data and measurement signals are generated from machines, space travel, private individuals and many other systems. The Swedish industry is in the midst of a digital change journey where enormous amounts of information are created, stored and evaluated in order to meet increasing competition. But how good are we actually getting something useful out of all these collected data?

Here we have put together a little reminder of what was addressed during the day from the speakers - and you can see some photos taken during the day https://www.iva.se/publicerat/framtiden-finns-i-norrbotten/

The purpose of this seminar is to illustrate how the new technology with Artificial Intelligence can be used within an important Swedish basic industry, the mining industry, and an emerging industry sector, space technology. Both the mining industry, space technology and data storage are also strongly rooted in Norr- og Västerbotten and in this way we want to highlight how Swedish industry develops thanks to the possibilities of digitization.
