Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a determining factor for our future prosperity and well-being. Due to its generic nature, AI will have an impact on all business sectors, our private lives, and society as a whole. The diligence with which we act now determines the control over our future with significant effects within the coming ten years. Therefore, the Netherlands must build and maintain a distinctive position in both the development and application of AI. Only by a proactive approach in AI we can, as a country, influence how AI will be applied to social and economic challenges and how we can genuinely benefit from it. AI is not the end goal in itself, but a powerful means, to maintain and expand our international competitive position and to solve economic and societal issues.
The Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) has been set up to substantiate and stimulate AI activities in the Netherlands. The NL AIC is a public-private partnership in which the government, the business sector, educational and research institutions, as well as civil society organisations collaborate to accelerate and connect AI developments and initiatives. The ambition is to position the Netherlands at the forefront of knowledge and application of AI for prosperity and well-being. We are continually doing so with due observance of both the Dutch and European standards and values. The NL AIC functions as the catalyst for AI applications in our country.
One of the main goals is to have impactful AI in at least ten economic and societal sectors within the coming three years. This is where the application of AI takes place and where we create our economic impact and tackle societal challenges.
Participating in the Netherlands AI Coalition means:
The NL AIC collaborates on the necessary common knowledge and expertise, resulting in five themes, also called building blocks. Those are important for a robust impact in economic and social sectors.
AI is a generic technology that is ultimately applicable in all sectors. For the development of knowledge and experience in the use of AI in the Netherlands, it is essential to focus on specific industries that are relevant to our country. These industries can achieve excellent results, and knowledge and experience that can be leveraged for application in other sectors.
The Netherlands AI Coalition is convinced that active collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders is essential to stimulate and connect initiatives in Artificial Intelligence.
