Meet the Keynotes

Assistant Professor, CBS Denmark.

Sine Zambach is an Assistant Professor at Copenhagen Business school (CBS) and holds a PhD in computer science. Her primary research areas includes among others Learning Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence, and Sine is the auther of the books: "AI i Gymnasiet" and "Kvinde kend din kode".

"What will be AI’s role in future education?” Generative artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology that will significantly impact the education system. However, how do we ensure that students achieve the necessary learning, and which competencies will be crucial in the future? Sine Zambach will share insights from her book “AI in Gymnasiet” (AI in high school) and present her research on machine learning and artificial intelligence in primary schools.

She will also discuss her early experiments with AI in teaching at CBS and continuing education. 

Professor, Dynamics, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Dean of Education for MATS, Chalmers University of Technology

Mikael is also founder and director for Chalmers ten-year initiative Tracks to develop the education to become more flexible and responsive to changes in the society as well as to new technology, materials, and concepts. Mikael is a member of Chalmers executive committee for education in which he is responsible for internationalization in education.  Mikael obtained his PhD in 1996 from Chalmers and was appointed professor in 2012.

"Reforming Education at Chalmers University of Technology"

This presentation explores how the Tracks Initiative at Chalmers redefines education by fostering interdisciplinary skills and dynamic collaboration among students, faculty, and external partners.

In Chalmers Tracks, students are empowered to cultivate interdisciplinary competencies through individualized study paths. Students engage in elective or extra-curricular courses and projects aligned with their research, and/or societal interests, or career goals. These courses, proposed by faculty or external stakeholders, transcend traditional academic boundaries welcoming students from BSc to PhD levels, alumni, and professionals from all disciplines of engineering and related fields. Tracks also aims to swiftly adapt education to incorporate cutting-edge technologies, emerging materials, and innovative concepts. At its core, Tracks includes Fuse Innovation Lab, providing a collaborative environment for creativity and innovation among students, faculty, industry, and public sector. Finally, Tracks' broader impact on Chalmers' educational landscape fostering a culture of creativity, innovation, and collaboration is highlighted.
