This site is a collection of playbooks on the most important topics in the intersection of technology, business and society today, written for the non-technical reader. They are meant to inspire and open these topics up for discussion and learning. I have added original illustrations for each, so that they would be more fun to look at and more inspiring to read. You can download both the papers (as pdf) and other free resources for any use, but please refer to 

When downloading the playbooks, you are asked to leave your email address so that we can notify you of important new playbooks as they come along. Happy reading and learning!

Please let us know if you have any constructive feedback on the content. Especially if you have feedback on the hypothetical use cases, so that we can make them real. At present, most of the cases in the papers are based on our best guess for the potential for applied AI in the most interesting Norwegian companies or organizations in each sector, based on their unique strengths and market positions, and we’d love to replace the potential AI dreams with real stories.

There is, so far, very little data on the transformative applications of AI, yet AI is ready to disrupt all industries. Most of the real world applications that we know of are about basic efficiency gains, while we are looking for transformative use of AI. If you have it, please share it.
