Applied AI Lunch Talks - The Law School of UCPH & Novozymes


Applied AI Lunch Talks are back after a summer break! On September 7th 2023 @12:00-13:00 we have two exciting talks lined up for you. Join face-to-face at DTU Skylab or sign up here for the live-streaming if you want to learn about how to "Navigate the AI Act" and "Use AI to Create Value From the Data Haystack". See below for more detailed information on the two talks and the speakers. 

Navigating the AI Act: A Collaborative Approach Between Engineers and Lawyers

The forthcoming AI Act challenges existing legislative paradigms, emphasizing self-criticism and multidisciplinary collaboration. This talk explores those new compliance requirements for multidisciplinarity, and looks at how we can create better collaboration models between lawyers and engineers. 

Léonard Van Rompaey  

Postdoc at the Law faculty - Centre for Private Governance at University of Copenhagen

With a focus on law and AI since 2014, Léonard's award-winning research has led to collaborations with organizations such as Teknologisk Instituttet and the Danish robotics sector, and appearances in Danish media. While he primarily teach at Copenhagen's Law Faculty, he has also led workshops for law firms, consultancies, and public entities.

Using AI to Create Value From the Data Haystack 

When working in a large enterprise, there is no shortage of data or potential ML/AI focused projects. The main challenge lies in identifying the right value-creators, ensuring data quality, and not underestimating the change management journey. This talk will introduce three Novozymes applied AI use-cases, as well as the motivations behind, executions and considerations taken. We will also discuss how the recent surge in LLMs (e.g., ChatGPT) has affected the company, and what factors to recognize when incorporating such models in the day-to-day of business.
