Developing AI-on-demand-platform

BRUSSELS: The AI4EU project officially starts this month, with a kick-off meeting of the partners held at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona on Thursday.
AI4EU brings together 79 top research institutes, SMEs and large enterprises in 21 countries to build a focal point for artificial intelligence (AI) resources, including data repositories, computing power, tools, and algorithms.
It will offer services and provide support to potential users of the technology and help them test and integrate AI solutions in their processes, products, and services. AI4EU will provide upskilling and reskilling courses. The project, led by the French company Thales, receives a total of 20 million euros (23 million U.S. dollars) in EU funding over the next 3 years. The platform will be set up in the course of 2019.
The European Commission’s Vice-President for the Digital Single Market, Andrus Ansip, and the Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, said: “Europe can only reap the full benefits of AI innovations if this technology is easily usable by all. The AI4EU project will help bring AI to small businesses, non-tech companies, and public administrations across Europe.”
On April 25, 2018, the Commission presented its strategy on artificial intelligence, announcing the development of the AI-on-demand platform.
