Upcoming Events

Nov 8 thru DEC 16, 2021 - hACTathon - AI to promote Gender Equality

We are excited to announce our upcoming hACTathon on AI to Promote Gender Equality. We are collaborating with Vinnova, Nordic Innovation House Silicon Valley, and Accenture to create the best possible conditions for participants to create sustainable and innovative solutions.

Studies have shown that as much as 85% of AI projects will produce incorrect results due to gender-biased algorithms. We believe that AI should be part of the solution and not part of the problem. We are calling on all Silicon Vikings to be part of the solution!

NOVEMBER 16, 2021 8:00 AM PT = 17:00 CET - SILICON VIKINGS STOCKHOLM NODE AND MICROSOFT: TALENT BEYOND BORDERS

Everybody is talking about getting back to work. Managers have an urge to become relevant again, lacking behind in the new online leadership. The world is no longer based on physical values. Without asking their employees, companies try to form employees back into the shape they had before the Pandemic. This is especially challenging for a group of people, those who deliver all their value through a keyboard.

Let’s hear it from them, what are their thoughts and how do they reason?

How will this implicate the world in the bigger perspective?

We’ll touch on the subject of the driving of the importance of Nations, tax politics and also ”living the dream”

This is a remote event with limited capacity for physical attendance in Stockholm.

This will be a series of events (3-4 episodes) with different focus areas.
