The Netherlands and Norway are joining the European AI initiative.
Being NORA’s CEO is pretty much like being Santa Claus. I am the lucky one getting a lot of positive attention for delivering nice presents to the AI community, while all the helpers who really have done the hard work are less visible. The AI researchers, educators and innovators of the NORA network are the ones producing the presents that I often have the pleasure of providing to the community. You are the one making AI research, innovation and education available to us all. The level of engagement and dedication from the community has far surpassed my expectations. So, when I am now able to say that 2021 has been no less than a fantastic year for NORA, it is all because of the contributions from you!
The first volume of the pan-Nordic journal Nordic Machine Intelligence (NMI) is out! NMI is a non-commercial, peer-reviewed, open-access journal. The journal will publish a wide range of articles related to promoting research and education within all aspects of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Robotics.
The winners of NORA’s first dataset challange were announced in November 2021. MedAI: Transparency in Medical Image Segmentation was a challenge held in connection with the Nordic AI Meet conference and focused on medical image segmentation and transparency in machine learning (ML)-based systems.
The Research Council of Norway (NFR) recently announced that the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Cloud (NAIC) will receive funding. The infrastructure will be the most powerful AI infrastructure in Norway. It will meet the AI needs of academia, SMEs, larger industry, startups and public administration. Gard Thomassen (UiO) is the project lead.
On 17th and 18th of November 2021, NORA held its first Annual Conference in Bergen. More than 100 researchers from across Norway came together to one of Norway’s most important meeting places for the AI-community.
For the first time ever, autonomous drilling is demonstrated on a full-scale offshore type drilling rig. The autonomous system decides and executes by itself every action that shall be taken and this without human intervention.
On 1st and 2nd of November, NORA in collaboration with CLAIRE and Research Council of Norway, hosted more than 100 young researchers at the Nordic Young Researchers Symposium (NordicAIMEET). The main purpose of the conference was to provide a platform for young AI researchers to exchange ideas, build collaborations and form a Nordic approach for building AI solutions for the societal good.
Join the AI, Data and Robotics Partnership launch event, organised by Adra and the European Commission on Thursday 25/10 (10am to 12:15pm)
BI Norwegian Business school and Simula Research Laboratory have decided to join forces to strengthen their expertise on data science through collaboration related to research and establishment of a new department and research center in data science. Make sure to register for the official opening on November 29!
Earlier this year NORA became an RCN supported AI focused EU-network for Horizon Europe. The initiative, called NORA.EU, will help to mobilize and support researchers within the fields of AI, machine learning and robotics to come together in applications for Horizon Europe.
The consortium aims to strengthen research, education and innovation within artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics.
Join us for the first and inaugural NORA Annual Conference, which will take place at Grand Bergen, November 17th and 18th, 2021! The conference aims to gather the Norwegian research community within the field of Artificial Intelligence. The registration deadline is approaching, so don’t forget to register your participation!

Welcome to our kickoff event in a series of monthly lunch seminars! Grab some lunch and join us for a talk by Luca Galimberti from NTNU, followed by an introduction to dScience by centre leader Morten Dæhlen.
Time and place: Oct. 14, 2021 11:30 AM–1:00 PM, The Science Library
By launching a new journal – Nordic Machine Intelligence (NMI) - NORA has reached another milestone in promoting and strengthening research and education within Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Robotics – this time with a Nordic focus.
If you haven’t heard it before, make sure to memorize the term Protein Folding! It is one of the great mysteries of life, and Artificial Intelligence just solved the problem – in what has been described as Artificial Intelligence’s greatest achievements to date. The tools used to solve this mystery are accessible to researchers, which will contribute to further new and important research and discoveries in this field. And NORA was first to hold a large-scale open event about the discovery with over 600 participants from around the world!
BigInsight, SIRIUS, DataScience@UiO and the newly established dScience centre would like to welcome the data science community to an evening of socialisation, learning and entertainment after a long hiatus. The prime minister will attend the official opening of dScience.
Time and place: Oct. 27, 2021 4:30 PM–Oct. 27, 2022 9:30 PM
Engaging broadly with civil society, research community and industry to make artificial intelligence work for public good
Each year, the UiT Machine Learning Group at UiT The Arctic University of Norway hosts the Northern Lights Deep Learning Conference NLDL. The goal of the conference is to gather researchers both on a national and international level to exchange ideas, encourage collaborations, and present new research. The deadline for submissions to the annual Northern Lights Deep Learning (NLDL) Conference, October 15th, is approaching!
Skal biler bli selvkjørende, må maskinene lære av den menneskelige hjernen.
