Digital tech summit

All Danish universities join forces for the largest research and tech fair in the Nordic region

30. nov - 1. dec 2021

Artificial intelligence, quantum computing and machine learning are technologies that are transforming our world and will become the next gamechanger for Danish companies. Being a leader in digital technologies is crucial for both the individual company and Denmark's entire competitiveness.
This is why the entire community of Danish universities now join forces with the Danish ICT Industry Association (IT-Branchen) and The Media House of Technology (Teknologiens Mediehus) to create a focal point for showcasing the latest research and the large number of businesses and start-ups driving the digital development in Denmark and the Nordic region. Together, they will ensure that the strong position of Danish research within digital technologies is transformed into new business models with companies in Denmark, will stimulate growth in small and medium-sized enterprises and unicorns, and promote innovation and startup activities in our society.

The event includes the following session from the FED:

Digital Energy – using IoT, Big Data and AI for the Green Transition

30. November (01:15 pm -  02:30 pm)

Organized by AAU in collaboration with DIREC

Digitization of the energy system using state of the art technologies is a prerequisite in order to realise the green transition which is based on flexible use of distributed energy resources. The key technologies are IoT, Big Data analytics and AI. The session will present recent results and applications. The presenters participate in the Innovation Fund Denmark project Flexible Energy Denmark (FED) which aims at developing a data lake for Living Labs as well as tools, solutions and a business eco-system. Among the 24 project partners are the technical universities and utility/technology companies. The presentations will be related to the project aims.
