Rami Luisto

Talks

I enjoy talking about complex technical topics both to experts and non-experts alike. Helping or enabling people to understand (tehcnical) ideas is a passion for me, and I highly recommend outreach activities to everyone who has the opportunity. The skills you gain from explaining your topic of expertise to a layman are very transerable both to the academical and business world. Especially if you do technical work e.g. in the field of AI and you have to help customers or co-workers to understand what is going on.

Listed below are both some of my more general audience talks and my older scientific talks in various seminars and conferences.
