Recent advancements in AI have expanded its applications across various fields, from basic tasks like language translation and trip planning to complex ones such as disease treatment. This technology caters to diverse human needs, simplifying our lives while also raising concerns about its potential to replace human jobs. This scenario presents a crucial consideration for job seekers and entrepreneurs: understanding AI's impact on career choices and business opportunities, amidst these challenges. Our upcoming workshop is designed to address these issues, featuring expert insights and interactive discussions. We eagerly anticipate learning from shared experiences and hearing your perspectives on this significant topic.

Chinese Professionals in Norway (CPN) is a professional and immigrant organization that has through previous work developed strong competence in helping immigrants with job applications, understanding the Norwegian business cultures, and developing ideas for becoming entrepreneurs. CPN has through its highly educated members built a wide contact network in Norwegian society, in addition to close cooperation with other immigrant organizations and the public sectors that manage instruments for innovation.

The workshop is financed by the Oslo municipality via the project entitled "Go for a job or an entrepreneur?". It will be held in English and free of charge. All attendees must register online at, due to the food reservation. The deadline for registration is 26th November 2023.
