Data & Artificial intelligence have been some of the most repeated buzzwords during the recent years. Often though, we hear big words, guidance and principles regarding how AI is going to transform our future isn't all that prevalent, whether we talk about industrial operations or the nature of work. 

Futurice has been working towards becoming a data-advised organization for the last 1,5 years. Key cornerstones in Futurice culture are continuous learning and experimentation. Hence, we started with having ourselves as a learning platform. And the first questions we have been exploring around are focused on solving problems of knowledge work. 

Futurice brings you a five-episode webinar series with live solutions and prototypes as examples, sharing the story of where we are on this journey and concretely transforming, exploring and learning on this new and interesting domain of data & AI.
