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.

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

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! 

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!

This summer the NORA family will be expanded with three interns. The purpose is to utilise the interest and knowledge many motivated and ambitious students have in the field of AI. Meet our three interns who will help elevate NORA and Norwegian AI to new heights this summer!

Since Christmas several extraordinary events have happened within the Norwegian AI society and NORA. Many excellent research, innovation and education results have been achieved. Especially, I want to congratulate AI-Mind and SFI Visual Intelligence! These large AI projects kicked off in 2021 and will surely be forming Norwegian AI the next years. I also want to mention that NORA has been expanded with four new partners, making the collaboration even stronger. NORA has also become a NFR supported AI EU network for Horizon Europe, NORA.startup has become an Innovation Norway supported innovation ecosystem for AI and we have expanded the secretariat with excellent people to support our partners and fulfill our mission. NORA and Norwegian AI have surely taken giant leaps the last months, and with these major upgrades we now refer to ourselves as NORA 2.0.

Med ei internasjonal karriere, 16 publiserte fagbøker og eit stort, globalt nettverk, er Rajendra Akerkar blant Sogndals største forskarstjerner. No jobbar professoren for å rekruttere yngre forskarar til det lovande forskingsfeltet stordata, der målet no er å bidra til innovasjon og verdiskaping i vestlandske bedrifter.

With University of South-Eastern Norway, Kristiania University College, Østfold University College and Western Norway Research Institute as new members, NORA is without question Norway’s leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) network. NORA’s expansion and the opportunities this entails will bring NORA even closer to fulfilling its vision of International relevance and excellence in AI research, education and innovation for Norwegian universities and research institutions. 

The very first CEDAS-conference (Center for Data Science at the University of Bergen) was held the 1st and 2nd of June both virtually and physically in Bergen.
