In the City

Walking

Copenhagen is a very safe city to walk. If you want to explore the city by walking, feel free to check this guide.

Public Transportation

Practical tips for public transportation, for more details, please check this nice introduction.

  • Public transportation is quite reliable in Copenhagen and you can trust Google map wherever needed.
  • Tickets & prices: there are various types of tickets, please check this page.
    • The best option is to get an E-ticket (Download the app “DOT Billetter” in App Store and Google Play and pay for your tickets on the go).
    • You can always buy a one-time ticket in ticket machines, or 7-Eleven kiosks at the train and metro stations with cash or credit cards.
    • If you choose to buy a transportation card (called Rejsekort in Denmark, there are two types and for travelers the anonymous one is sufficient), PLEASE REMEMBER TO BOTH CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT AFTER YOUR TRAVEL.
    • There are also options for travel passes within a certain time (e.g. 24 hours). When purchasing the passes, you will need to choose the zones and it will only be valid to travel within the zones you have chosen.
City Bikes

The city is also very bike-friendly. You can rent bikes from bike shops or services like Donkey Republic. When biking, please remember to follow the rules.

Self-Study Recommendations

Code of Conduct

The ProbAI school aims to be and to promote an environment of diversity, inclusion, openness, collaboration, and knowledge sharing.

To reach those goals together, the ProbAI team has created the following Code of Conduct, which is expected to be complied with by all participants (attendees, lecturers, organizers, helpers, and others). We therefore expect the following from all participants:

  • Be welcoming and supportive. People of different backgrounds and identities are welcome and supported.
  • Be respectful and keep a good tone. Communicate thoughtfully and listen to the other participants. Be open to other participants’ thoughts and be aware of personal biases.
  • Collaborate and share knowledge. Everyone at the school has different skills and levels of experience. Engage and learn from the other participants. Share your knowledge and help out other participants.
  • Respect personal boundaries. We do not accept harassment, violence, behavior of a sexual or discriminatory nature, or other offensive behavior.

This code is not exhaustive and captures a broader understanding of a healthy and safe collaborative environment.

If you have an incident of misconduct you wish to report; you may use the form at this link: https://nordic.probabilistic.ai/report-misconduct/

The ProbAI team will handle any reported misconduct, and the appropriate actions will be taken. The consequences will vary depending on the level of the misconduct and include, but are not limited to, removed attendance from the school.
