The Talk

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.

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.
