A new alliance to accelerate AI in the Nordics

The Nordic AI Alliance is made up by leading Nordic companies, all working with AI, and create stronger collaboration structures between the Nordic countries. The members of the Nordic AI Alliance pledge to help facilitate this acceleration, by helping other companies and organizations in the Nordic countries come in contact with the best expertise to help them throughout their AI journey.

Background

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already being used to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges and is being put at the core of change by organizations and countries around the world at an increasing pace.

The Nordic countries have strong regional values ensuring that everyone in society benefits from advancement in technology and research.

To remain competitive the Nordic Countries need to increase the pace at which they adopt AI technology at the core of business and infrastructure.

The challenges of AI

AI offers a cognitive increase in any organization’s capability to make predictions, support systems, automation and computer vision systems related to their products and services.

01/ Basic knowledge & understanding of AI

“AI has huge potential to create tremendous business value, but the value chain of AI is complex, and it can be hard to unlock the value within the organization. No organization will succeed if they try to master all parts of the value chain themselves. It’s essential that we have initiatives like the Nordic AI Alliance that will bring together those with enough courage to seek advice and collaborate with the vast amount of experts we have around us here in the Nordics.”
-Oscar Petersson, co-founder & CEO, Annotell
