New Team and improved approach
2021 elections brought together a strong team of volunteers in three teams, Business Relations & Communications, IT & Operations, and Education. Together, they work on growing the society as well as strengthening the core, formalizing relations and collaborations, and leaning into the opportunities on distance with a push for online content.
All Internationals Hackathon
Targeted exclusively towards international students, this covid-safe hackathon put students in groups working into the late hours of the night to build AI solutions.
The 2020 board was elected, and a long-term partnership with McKinsey & Company as sponsor was signed.
First full-day event: AI Day
Over 150 students attended KTHAIS flagship event at the KTH union hall Nymble. Workshops with Ericsson and Accenture, panel discussions with AI Startups and meeting Furhat, the social robot from Furhat Robotics.
Established and up to speed
A core team is recruited and several projects are planned and executed. Plenty of interest is seen in the student community, and participants give lots of positive feedback. KTHAIS quickly became the fastest growing organisation at KTH.
An idea is born
Alexander Jacobsen came to Filip Matz with an idea: Why don't we establish an organization to build the community of students interested in AI at KTH? Together, they planted the seeds for this vision, acting with conviction that through this, us students can impact the future of AI.
