AI Innovation of Sweden (www.AI-innovation.se)
Through this national initiative, a broad spectrum of organizations from industry, the public sector, healthcare, fintech, and academia will co-locate and leverage technology, data, know-how and insights across domains to accelerate AI-related applied research and innovation. The unique set up with a data factory collocated with advanced AI algorithmic research provides an opportunity to quickly establish research and rapidly make progress in the projects. The intention is also for there to be collaboration with international leaders in Artificial Intelligence and to further strengthen existing, planned and future Swedish initiatives in AI.
The data factory is a key part of AI Innovation of Sweden and will be at the heart of the national AI-ecosystem in Sweden. Being one of the first of its kind in the world it will also serve as a portal and role model for international interactions related to data for AI. It will comprise components for all aspects of data generation, management and licensing including but not limited to data generation, curation, annotation, storage, and retrieval. It will also be able to accept datasets donated by industry, public sector and academia.
Wallenberg Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest ever privately funded research program. The program supports research on autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems with an artificial intelligence brain. Please see the WASP homepage for further info
As a collaboration between industry and academia, the WASP Research Arenas (WARA) will demonstrate WASP funded research in relevant environments. Furthermore, they will stimulate new research through their capabilities as well as the emerging use cases and long-term challenges put forward by the partners. WARA focuses on complex scenarios, including e.g., vehicles and actors, sensors, command- and control functionality at different levels, communication, cloud services, and machine learning. Initially, two research arenas are being started: WARA-Public Safety (PS), and WARA-Collaborative Autonomous Transport Data (CAT/DAT) which will be set up as part of the collaboration with Zenuity and AI Innovation of Sweden.
