The Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) was established in 2019 to conduct and promote AI activities in the Netherlands. Their main objective is to realize AI innovations in at least ten economic and societal sectors. The Culture and Media Working Group delves into how AI drives the transition in culture and media (‘AI for culture’) and how this sector can contribute to the implementation of AI (‘culture for AI’). This group previously published a position paper on the matter. The Human Capital cornerstone primarily focuses on competencies, scaling up AI education, fostering new talent, and the continuous training and retraining of employees across all sectors.
