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.
