What: WiT Breakfast Date: AI & Ethics: Using AI in benefit of Children & Youth

When: November 3rd, 2021

Where: Online stream, register here

Artificial intelligence is driving innovation and delivering value in all sectors of society, including health and social care. The AI-based solution called Nuora, developed by Fujitsu and the Finnish Eksote South Karelia Social and Health Care District, serves as an example by identifying and analyzing the factors that cause social exclusion among youth. It can currently identify approximately 90% of the young people at risk of social exclusion, improving early, targeted intervention and reducing healthcare and associated costs.

AI can also pose risks for children and their rights, such as privacy, safety and security. AI is increasingly being implemented in services used by children and in decision-making that affects children. However, most AI policies, strategies and guidance today do not take the needs of children into account.

UNICEF is now piloting a policy guidance globally to protect child rights in the use of AI.

How can AI help us solve social problems like youth exclusion, and how can children’s rights be taken into account in the deployment of AI? What are the lesson learned in the case of Nuora? You are welcome to join the webinar provided by Fujitsu and the discussion on the use of AI in benefit for children and youth.

Speakers: Etelä-Karjalan sosiaali- ja terveyspiiri (Eksote), Henna Puputti, BI Service Manager (will give a speech in Finnish)

Unicef, Jussi Kivipuro  Development Director, The Finnish Committee for UNICEF

What: WiT Breakfast Date: The DNA of winning teams

When: November 9th, 2021

Where: Scandic Park, Helsinki. Register here

Join our live breakfast event to discuss with successful business leaders how they build winning teams.

We all know that teamwork is one of the cornerstones of success. However, the past year has brought about rapid and remarkable transformation that has forever changed us and how teams come together. All this poses a list of questions, such as:

* How do you build winning teams today?
* How do you enable a winning culture when working from anywhere?
* What is the role of the technology?

To dive deeper into this topic, we warmly welcome you to join the breakfast event with business leaders Satu Kiiskinen, TietoEVRY; Taina Kunelius, Finnair; Taira Tepponen, Salesforce and Ella Haapiainen, Salesforce.

Come and join for breakfast seminar on November 9 from 8-10 at Scandic Park, Vision, Mannerheimintie 46, 00260 Helsinki. Tead more and register here.

What: WiT Breakfast Date: How to Measure Sustainability

When: November 11th, 2021

Where: EY House Helsinki (Alvar Aallon katu 5C, Helsinki.) Register here

It’s finally time to meet other Women in Tech face to face and have breakfast prepared by others! Welcome to the Women in Tech Breakfast Date at EY House in Helsinki on November 11th

In general: you get what you measure, and that applies also to companies’ sustainability! We invite everyone interested in how technology can help with measuring sustainability to enjoy breakfast with us while hearing our thoughts on how to do it. Our EY team will be discussing the importance of measuring sustainability, how planning and reporting e.g. the carbon footprint dimension will be integrated into the everyday finance function in the future, and how modern technologies, like blockchain, can help in measuring sustainability. 

Breakfast will be served at 8.00, and the hour-long program starts at 8.30. After the presentations we will have time for a Q&A session to share knowledge and insights.
