Danish women in Tech – come and celebrate Ada Lovelace Day 2018
9 October 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
3Shape and the Department of Computer Science DIKU – University of Copenhagen, are joining forces to celebrate the Ada Lovelace Day 2018 in Denmark! You are kindly invited to spend an afternoon of talk, networking and refreshments – a day dedicated to women who have chosen technological and scientific paths sharing their stories.
The achievements of woman in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are celebrated on the second Tuesday of October around the world. A day that honors Ada Lovelace, an English mathematician, who is acknowledged to be the first to realize the full potential of a “computing machine” and the first computer programmer. Lovelace was a trailblazer who recognized that the machine could have applications beyond pure calculation. She is credited with writing the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine.
Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in STEM. It was started in 2009 by Suw Charman-Anderson as a day of blogging about women in tech. It has rapidly developed into a broader celebration of women in STEM.
This year, 3Shape and DIKU join the community of countries hosting local ALD events!

Speakers and talks
Aasa Feragen is an Associate Professor at the Dept. of Computer Science, UCPH, following a PhD in math and a postdoc at the MPI for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany. Aasa’s group works at the intersection where real problems and computational constraints meet mathematical modelling.
Data objects are often themselves estimated from data: In structural brain connectivity, connections are segmented (extracted) from noisy medical images. A typical population study aims to quantify population differences between healthy and ill, but ignores the segmentation uncertainty, and thus underestimates uncertainty in the population analysis, which can be fatal. I will discuss a solution.
Kristine Slot has been working with software development in 3shape for almost 10 year – either with her fingers directly in the code or as a Project Manager for innovative teams, contributing to the software development process in a more indirect way.
Kristine will talk about being a software developer at heart – also after following a calling as a Project Manager. She will talk about how to still be part of the creative, innovative process, still finding some time to do some code and using the software development skills in Project Management.
Dina Friis has a master’s in computer science from the University of Copenhagen. She has a background as Java Developer, Scrum Master and independent Agile Coach and is today working as Senior Nordic Agile Coach at Nets in a business unit with more than 30 teams across the Nordic countries, India and Romania. She has been part of the team behind Scrumpatterns.org from the start in 2010.
Most companies today are embracing Agile ways of working on different levels. But one area where most fail is the urge to hold on to the job role Developer. Agile is about increasing the value of the product and the organisation. This talk will be about aligning roles around value creation and how the Developer fits in to a modern Agile organisation.
Carina Graversen works as a scientist at Eriksholm Research Centre – part of Oticon. Carina holds a PhD in brain research, and now works with cognitive hearing science to develop future hearing aids to be steered by brain waves and other physiological measures.
My hearing aid is not working – it amplifies all sounds, and not only the speech I want to attend to! This common complaint by hearing impaired having their first hearing aid may soon be history. Come and hear the latest advances in obtaining a cognitive controlled hearing aid steered by brain waves and other physiological measures.
