AI INNOVATION OF SWEDEN SOUTH

ABOUT
AI Innovation of Sweden is a national and neutral initiative, functioning as an engine in the Swedish AI ecosystem. The focus is on accelerating the implementation of AI through sharing knowledge and data, co-location of competences, and collaboration projects, all with a strong emphasis on ethics, transparency, and security.
 

After an intensive fall of planning, workshops and discussions with more than 90 people from organizations from industry, academia, science parks, municipalities and regions, based in south Sweden (Skåne and Blekinge), the south node of AI Innovation of Sweden has now taken its next step and is getting ready to be formed.

The work on the pre-study has been lead by us, Mobile Heights, and underway in the fall of 2019 (read here for more information about the pre-study). The result, a recommendation for how a southern Swedish AI hub should be organised and financed in the long term, was presented during a final presentation held on December 17th.

Now the node project has officially started for real and we are super excited to continue leading this.

Focus for 2020 is to, together with signing partners, establish key functions and resources, identify projects with value creation cross sectors and kick off crucial activities. To accelerate the implementation of AI through sharing knowledge and data, co-location of competences, and collaboration projects. The goal is to have a fully established and running southern node of the AI Innovation of Sweden within the upcoming 6-12 months in the Skåne and Blekinge area.

As our Node manager Malin Larsson says – “Now we are ready for action! Only opportunities lie ahead of us.”
