Tuesday, March 5, DataSci NMBU went and visited our main partner Acando. We took a bus together from Ås in to Oslo. When we there we had the opportunity to to ask questions and to talk to their employes. After some pizza and sushi there were some short presentations from the employees about what Acando works on. After that there was a exctiting lecture from Acandos lead data scientist on how they use AI in their projects.
During the second half of the visit we got a tour around the offices and their lab. We got to try out the Microsoft Hololens and see how they are utilizing it aswell as the robot Pepper. At the end of the visit we had a Kahoot.
The visit to Acando was very successful, inspiring and educational. Their employees shoed great interest in Ås and our studies and Acando seems like a exciting workplace. Events like these are a great motivation for further studies!
