Amsterdam AI, the AI hub of Amsterdam
Deep, wide and responsible
Amsterdam is uniquely positioned to organize collaboration between academic, medical, government and other institutions in the field of AI. For over thirty years, the two Amsterdam Universities have provided high-quality AI education. Together with the Hogeschool van Amsterdam and academic hospitals, they guarantee a solid foundation for talent. This talent fuels the region’s science and innovation ecosystem.
With in-depth knowledge, a broad scope and a focus on the responsible development and deployment of AI applications, the Amsterdam AI network has a pivotal role. It works closely with international networks such as ELLIS and CLAIRE. The ICAI headquarters is located in Amsterdam. Also the national lead of the gravity program Hybrid Intelligence, of the long term program ROBUST and the TTT.AI consortium. Moreover, this connects Amsterdam well to the national network of knowledge institutions and companies. Central to the approach of the Amsterdam AI Hub are three themes, all of which have a major impact on our daily lives and socioeconomic development in the region: AI for Health, AI for Business Innovation and AI for Citizens.
