Demystifying AI and building the bridge to
real value for business and society

Elin Hauge believes Artificial intelligence should be in the forefront of every leaders’ mind; because it will fundamentally change your business, significantly impact your life, and so that you can understand the technologies your kids take for granted.






Elin Hauge is a futurist and artificial intelligence expert with a background in mathematics, physics, and business. Elin creates a well-rounded approach in providing actionable takeaways to amplify AI for audience members and businesses alike to optimize their organizations accordingly.


Artificial intelligence is probably the most disruptive technological development in human history, and it is ubiquitous; from the face recognition on your smartphone to advanced public surveillance, from food production to medical research, from online shopping to autonomous cars. According to Elin Hauge, understanding the basics of artificial intelligence should be as compulsory for any leader in 2021 as having a computer.

Elin Hauge has built bridges between business and data-driven technologies for more than 20 years, with AI as her main area of focus since 2016. Through her work with business leaders and tech entrepreneurs, she has developed an exceptional ability to connect the dots between business strategy and the application of AI. She brings new perspectives to known challenges, relentlessly demystifying jargon and buzz words. She has a humoristic, down-to-earth, and pragmatic approach to what is actually possible with AI here and now, what is responsible to do in the context of both your company and the society, and what you as decision-maker need to understand to make the right decisions. She systematically brings in the human perspective; “the future of artificial intelligence is not human less, it’s human more.”


In her talks, she provides tangible and well-grounded recommendations for how to reap real benefits with AI, how to comply with regulations, and how to make AI an integral part of your business or organization. 

Elin Hauge holds a MEng in Biophysics and Medical Technology and a MSc in Management Science and Operational Research. Her strong academic background from mathematics and physics, combined with broad business experience, provides a rock-solid foundation for her perspectives on the revolutionary opportunities and complex challenges with and around artificial intelligence. 

In May 2020, she co-founded an international advisory company to help AI and emerging tech startups and scaleups with international growth and expansion


NEW FOR 2022



As the physical world in 2021 was occupied with the covid pandemic, the Metaverse became the new kid on the block in the digital world. Although Zuckerberg coined the term 'Meta', the Metaverse is way more than Facebook on speed and steroids. It is often referred to as the next generation internet, where gaming and social media meet blockchain and decentralized economies. But why should you as a business leader care? And should you be excited or scared? Should you start creating your avatar or turn the computer off and take a walk in the forest?

In this talk, Elin will demystify some of the new jargon, and give an overview of what the metaverse is (and is not). She will share her perspectives on exciting opportunities and challenging concerns, and why you as a business leader and citizen should care. And what, if any, action you may need to take.


We tend to think that everything digital is sustainable because data flying around on the wireless internet doesn't leave any footprints. Or do they…? In this talk, Elin will blow your mind with some heart-breaking and stunning facts and anecdotes about the clash between digitalization and sustainability. At the same time, digital technologies such as cloud platforms, artificial intelligence, internet of things, and blockchain are indeed important for the sustainable future of businesses and societies.

How can you as a leader and decision-maker navigate in this overwhelming and complex landscape of digital technologies and sustainability issues? What do you need to understand, what are your options, and how much impact can you really make?


In this talk, Elin will give three actionable recommendations for how you as a leader can contribute to a smarter and more sustainable digital future.


Bias is buzz, but responsibility rules

In April 2021, The EU published a proposal for regulation of AI. The core of the regulation is about protecting the fundamental rights of the individual. Bias, or rather the absence of, is an essential component. But what is it really about? And why do we need to have a serious talk about a pair of huge elephants in the room - namely you and me? In this lecture, Elin provides selected recommendations for how to build a more intelligent and responsible future.


Busting the myths about AI, and building the bridge to real value for business and society

Are you tired of hearing about a distant future where robots rule the world, humans are mere servants, and we are all subject to the whims of a ubiquitous artificial intelligence? Let's put those nasty fairytales aside for now, and discuss what is actually possible here and now. Let's talk about how mathematics applied to large amounts of data can automate processes, completely change how you do business, and fuel innovation of new products and services. As a business leader and decision-maker, having a basic understanding of artificial intelligence should be as compulsory as having access to a computer. In this talk, you will get real-life examples that are relevant for your industry, concrete understanding of what artificial intelligence actually entails, and recommendations for what you as a leader and decision-maker should focus on.

Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity – Why humans, not the algorithms, are the real problem

Have you noticed the two big elephants dancing around in the room every time artificial intelligence is brought up? The two elephants are called You and Me. Artificial intelligence is, in very simple terms, mathematics applied to large amounts of data. But where do those data come from? From You and Me. And that is where the problem of natural stupidity comes in. To quote Cassie Kozyrkow, ``artificial intelligence is a thoughtlessness enabler``. In this talk, Elin provides thought-provoking perspectives on some of the key challenges within artificial intelligence, and recommendations for how to mitigate natural stupidity.
