Combitech becomes new partner of AI Sweden
Combitech joins AI Sweden’s network of more than 100 business, public sector and research organisations. The aim of the partnership is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge of practical applications of artificial intelligence (AI), improve Sweden’s capabilities and attract talent over the long term.
– “My colleagues and I here at Combitech are delighted to be joining AI Sweden as an active partner. Our membership will give us greater access to research and the latest technologies as well as an arena for developing business relationships and skills. We can work collaboratively on sustainability, digitalisation, purposeful technology and other key issues in our society. Among other initiatives, Combitech will be running a talent program providing participants with opportunities to engage in customer projects with real-life challenges and solutions,” says Johan Gunnarsson, CTO at Combitech.
– "Talent attraction and upskilling are keys to accelerating the use of AI in Sweden. Therefore, it is great news that Combitech is joining AI Sweden as a new partner, to run a joint talent attraction program. We are looking forward to working together to find concrete solutions to address the lack of AI expertise in the labor market", says Martin Svensson, Co-Director Operations at AI Sweden.
Combitech Talent program - focus on AI
As part of the digital changes taking place in society, Sweden needs to increase its expertise in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI Sweden and Combitech are teaming up to offer a talent program with a focus on AI to attract talented individuals. The program will be launched in the spring of 2022.
– “The competitive edge of Swedish industry and the efficiency of the public sector depend on individuals with the skills and creativity to lead the development of advanced systems and solutions with an accelerating level of AI applications. We are still at the beginning of this technology, but AI and machine learning are already helping us in our daily lives, for example with safe driving and choosing the right restaurant. The pace of development is fast and we therefore need more motivated and interested people. So apply to this program,” says Johnny Larsson, Head of Strategic Business and Innovation in the Systems Engineering division, and in charge of the talent program at Combitech.
– "Combitech's experience from working with talent programs of this kind is hard to beat. With a focus on highly educated and driven individuals, and the company's methods for developing experience, they add a unique dimension to the joint talent program and to all organizations in need of qualified AI expertise. Running the program in parallel to existing projects enables us to share the talent pool with industry even faster", says Niclas Fock, Head of Talent Programs at AI Sweden.
