The shortcut at the service of mankind
At RISE, we see Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an area of innovation that can improve the conditions of life on earth and contribute to a more sustainable society. With the help of AI vast amounts of data can be processed and interpreted to show insightful patterns and deliver trustworthy answers, so that today’s problem solvers can save critical time and develop the solutions needed. The technology can be applied in as far-ranging fields as climate change to cancer care and self-driving cars.

RISE is a unique innovation partner offering an entire eco-system of infrastructure, digital platforms and applications. We take pride in our strong focus on visionary and ethical issues, collaborating cross-industry from the business to public sector. Together, we make AI the highway to a better society.

Latest news from the AI Agenda
In the last number of AI news you could read about the AI agenda. The work with the agenda is moving forward and the next step is to have follow-up meetings in november.

 - In these meetings we will discuss each others proposal for activities, which then will be presented in the end of the year. We will also develop a digital platform that enables further ways to create engagement and inclusion. I am so impressed by everyones commitment in the agenda. All members share material and experience and the work is based on a bottom-up perspective. Everyone works to strengthen each other and do whats best for Sweden, says Jeanette Nilsson AI ecosystem driver and coordinator at RISE.

You can also see the interresting discussion from last summers seminar in Almedalen here:
AI for next generation cancer treatment
In the project "AI for next generation cancer treatment" RISE and the project partners KI and KTH are developing tools and methodologies to achieve the complex process of collecting information at the phenotype level of tumors. The project open a unique opportunity to identify causal relationships between cancerous cell behavior and associated proteins, to unveil other classes or sub-classes of cancer, and even more importantly to enable more precise identification of exact treatments to target the actual existing problematic proteins.
