Event by Novo Nordisk Foundation Science Cluster

    Lecture: Artificial intelligence

    The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures are a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested in and around the Copenhagen area. Every 4 weeks, on a Thursday evening, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus. The topic of the April lecture is "Artificial intelligence" with speakers Christian Holmegaard Mossing and Morten Mørup.

    Morten Mørup Associate Professor, DTU Compute
    Christian Holmegaard Mossing Vice President, NIRAS


    Christian Holmegaard Mossing is Vice President for Planning and Digitalization in NIRAS. Christian has more than 20 years of professional experience from engineering consultancy (Orbicon -> COWI -> NIRAS) and has always combined deep domain knowledge with digital technologies. During the last 4-5 years Christian has worked intensively with digital transformation and all aspects of this challenge, ranging from building digital platforms, IoT development, advanced data analytics and lately the application of artificial intelligence. The background for his talk is recent participation in an Applied AI Academy in Silicon Valley organized by ATV in the fall of 2018. Christian has scheduled more than 15 Tech Talks about applied AI before the summer holidays.

    Morten Mørup is Associate Professor at the Section for Cognitive Systems, DTU Compute and head of studies for the Artificial Intelligence and Data bachelor programme at DTU. Morten’s research focuses on Machine Learning and the modeling of brain imaging data and he received in 2008 the degree of PhD at DTU Informatics. During his PhD Morten visited Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley as a guest researcher. Morten’s research is centered on the modeling of brain imaging data using source separation techniques as well as models of complex networks. In 2006 Morten received an EliteForsk travel scholarship from the ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Eductation, in 2008 Director Peter Gorm-Petersens memorial scholarship and in 2012 he was awarded a Lundbeck Foundation Fellowship.

    I would like to know about upcoming Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures – where can I find information?

    Check the event calendar of the www.cph-bioscience.com/events website regularly. You are also very welcome to join the ‘Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers’ Linkedin group. There you will find information about upcoming lectures, and much more. And when you register for an event, click the ‘I want to receive information about upcoming events’ box, so you will automatically get invited to the next event.

    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

    The organiser offers to pay for a taxi on the following conditions: it has to be transport from either Panum/Mærsk Tower or DTU building 220, if you are at least 3 people in a taxi. This is how it works: you arrange yourself for a taxi from Blegdamsvej or from Kemitorvet, find at least 2 other people to take the taxi with, and at arrival at Tuborg Havnevej 19 you ask Sophie to come and pay for the taxi (they’ll check departure address and number of persons in the taxi), as well as to order your taxi back.

    If you are by car, you can park for free in front or at the side of Tuborg Havnevej 19. If that is full, there is 3 hours free parking in the parking to the Waterfront shopping mall at the end of the road.

    Public transport by train to Hellerup station, and/or bus (1A, 21, 166), nearest by bus stop is Tuborg Boulevard.

    Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
