Imagine the world’s 20 top tier technologists “locked into” a house in in the outskirts of Stockholm for a week. Their task is to come up with new innovative concepts and prototypes for the benefit of the world. Awesome right?
That’s exactly what the project “Petri Dish” is about. In April 2016 the retreat will take place with participants like a Professor of Neuroscience, a facial recognition software expert and a CEO of a Machine learning company.
The goals of the project are:
Test the concept: Can a diverse group of top minds with free reins come up with truly innovative ideas and create functioning prototypes or elaborate plans?
Present new ideas for improvement to the world from top minds.
Strengthen Stockholm's position in the tech world as an innovation ecosystem.
Funded by Stockholm (October 2015)
