Slovak.AI calls on the new government to support research and development of artificial intelligence at a national level

Slovak.AI calls on the new government to support research and development of artificial intelligence at a national level and encourage Slovak companies to accelerate innovation and link up with the Academy.

The digital transformation of industry and business is present in the world and Slovakia should focus on maximizing its potential benefits for our country. Digitization is related to almost every aspect of life and has the potential to become the main accelerator of growth in the domestic and global economy in the upcoming years. The founding members of the Slovak.AI platform at the Slovak Academy of Sciences presented a practical manual for companies on how to implement artificial intelligence on Friday, March 6th, 2020. They also presented a vision of getting Slovakia on the map of Europe in the field of artificial intelligence by creating an institute as a reference of excellence in artificial intelligence for Slovakia, Europe and the world. The new Government of the Slovak Republic 2020+ is addressing strategic recommendations that talk about the necessary reforms and measures to make Slovakia a full partner in the international infrastructure of centers of excellence.

The founding members of the Slovak.AI platform - Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, the American Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia and the IT Association of Slovakia presented two strategic documents in which they participated. Both studies, including the survey, were prepared for the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investment and Information Technology:

  • Analysis and proposal of Slovakia's involvement in the EU initiative in building European centers of excellence for artificial intelligence (link to download)
  • Manual for companies to introduce artificial intelligence (link to download)
