Artificial Intelligence Gets Pride of Place in Stockholm

Stockholm will host the Federated AI Meeting (FAIM), the world’s largest scientific event on artificial intelligence, this very July. It will actually be a gathering of five world leading scientific AI conferences all under one roof – and for the first time. FAIM will take place at Stockholmsmässan. More than 5,000 international experts, scientists and engineers in the artificial intelligence field are expected to attend.

For almost 50 years, the world’s foremost scientific conference on artificial intelligence, International Joint Conference of Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), has been held annually in various cities around the world. When the Swedish AI Society, with support from Visit Stockholm, was granted to host the conference for a second time, a plan was set in motion to create a larger event week with several of the leading scientific conferences in the field gathering in Stockholm. The result was the Federated AI Meeting – the world’s largest event on AI.

Fredrik Heintz, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Linköping University and President of the Swedish AI Society commented: “It is unique to be able to bring together so many of the world’s leading AI researchers in one place to present the latest scientific advances. The fact that we can make this happen in Sweden shows that we are well respected in the scientific community, and offers a fantastic opportunity to present ourselves to the world.”
