Ireland is to have a seat at the table when it comes to European AI research with CeADAR to join a new network of 30 innovation hubs.
Last week, the European Commission’s (EC) High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI) published the ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI.
As part of this news, the EC said that it will start setting up networks of digital innovation hubs in member states to develop and implement a model for best practices in data sharing among them.
Now, the Centre for Applied Data Analytics Research (CeADAR) has revealed it is the only Irish centre among a network of 30 AI innovations hubs across Europe selected by the EC.
Each of these centres will collaborate on various AI projects and will lay the groundwork for future European policies on the technology.
A total of 150 applications were received from 27 different member states as well as three Horizon 2020-associated countries: Serbia, Switzerland and Norway.
