Representatives from the industrial sector and the academia, moderated by an international keynote speaker and technical journalist expert in AI (Mats Lewan) will discuss results and challenges in the relationship between the fields of Human-computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence.
The environmentally friendly thermo mug GreenCup is now available here at KTH Kista, at the kiosk Amigo by Electrum's entrance at Kistagången 16. Although students are the main target group, staff are most welcome to buy the mug and re-fill with hot drinks in an environmentally friendly manner.
The lecture is aimed at KTH staff who in some way engage in oral communication. We take a look at how you can plan and execute different kinds of oral presentations in various situations, cope with nerves, and deliver your message in an interesting and engaging manner. You will get a number of useful points, examples and advice that you can apply in your own work environment.
Mark Smith, Professor of IT Product Development and Anne Håkansson, Docent in Computer Science and researcher in AI will discuss Opportunities and Challenges with Smart, Sustainable and Competitive Societies today at Almedalen.
Three major changes will come into effect in the nearest future that will significantly reduce costs for KTH.
Internal pricing changes for MEX (Mobile Extension)
We are lowering internal pricing for MEX (Mobile Extension) as the costs and conditions have changed over time.
The current pricing is 3120 SEK/year and extension. As the changes are implemented we will reduce the cost to 2000 SEK/year and extension starting July 1, 2017. These changes will apply to both new and current users.
These major changes are related to the following:
- A long term strategy to streamline the range services offered by Tele
- An steady increase in the number of service users
- Reduced external costs
- Changes in the technical infrastructure
The cost reduction for this service corresponds to approximately 36%
A new operator agreement on 1 july 2017 (Tele2 Business)
The first july 2017 changes are made to the current agreement that will result in a more favorable pricing of traffic and data usage over the next three years. Today's operator Tele2 will be rebranded as Tele2 Business.
An additional news in the agreement is that it will include 1 GB data instead of the earlier 0.5 GB. This applies only to the MEX (Mobile Extension) extensions.
The new agreement reduces KTH traffic costs by approximately 41% (based on current traffic patterns).
Roaming within the EU/EEA (mobile phone abroad)
The new regulations will make it easier for you to use the mobile phone when visiting another EU/EEA country.
As of June 16, 2017 new legislation concerning roaming in the EU/EEA will be implemented. This means that you can surf on the internet or call and send SMS/MMS from the country you are in, to Sweden and other EU/EEA members at no additional cost. The aim is to simplify your mobile device usage and avoid surprises on your phone bill while traveling abroad.
What is roaming?
Using a mobile network that does not belong to your carrier is called roaming. This means that your mobile phone is switched from one telecom operator's network to another when outside Sweden.

This will reduce KTH traffic costs by approximately: 13% (based on current traffic patterns).
