AI Day 2018 brings together researchers, companies, students and the public sector involved in the fast-developing field of AI. The event promotes matchmaking, information sharing and cross-border collaboration.

The current, top-level AI research and education in Finland will be displayed during our whole-day event. Introducing the leading trends of AI research, the program includes four plenary sessions on data efficiency; privacy, security and fairness; understandability; and societal impact of AI. Along with the session speakers, the event highlights a wide set of posters, demos and short presentations of the latest AI research in Finland.

Last year's AI Day was a true success with fully-booked house and representatives from over 180 companies joining the event. This year the event will be even larger, longer and more diverse than last year.



Come and showcase your technology, present your solutions, and research as well as share problems that need solving. Reserve a stand to exhibit your business and research. We offer intriguing matchmaking opportunities—you are welcome to meet with students and researchers, to find new partners, and to discuss how AI is changing the world. Get a head start for your organization and discover new opportunities for your business!


Present your results and network with potential partners from both private and public sectors. We offer academic contributors an opportunity to showcase your research as posters, demos and short presentations. The registration period for academic contributions has now ended.
