North Rhine-Westphalia wants to become one of Europe’s top ten
The goal is an ambitious one: In just two years, North Rhine-Westphalia wants to be one of the ten strongest locations for artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe. At the core of its strategy is a competence platform launched a few months ago and managed by the Fraunhofer Institute.19 Sep 2019 David Schahinian
KI.NRW is more than just a URL, it is above all a network that, among other things, aims to pool skills and expertise and support the transfer of AI from research to industry. The platform has already paved the way for a project to create a test catalog for the certification of AI applications. Application-based projects for production and mobility are also planned. A further platform, the ‘Data Science Learning Laboratory’, is intended to impart AI technologies to experts in companies. According to the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS , more than 100 companies and organizations are already participating in the initiative.
It remains to be seen to what extent there will be synergies or differences between this and the German federal government’s AI strategy , the main goals of which are to ensure Germany’s competitiveness and the responsible use of AI.
