FCAI is a nation-wide competence center for Artificial Intelligence in Finland, initiated by Aalto University, University of Helsinki, and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. FCAI is one of the six Academy of Finland Finnish flagships.
Our mission is to create Real AI for Real People in the Real World—a new type of AI, which is able to operate with humans in the complex world—and to renew the Finnish industry with the new AI.
Real AI solutions will bring AI systems closer to human cognition. We do not attempt to replicate human cognition but provide ambitious and realistic technical solutions.
For AIs to be able to perform efficiently in the Real World, they need to work with scarce data and in situations where large, labeled training data sets are rare.
Real People will use AIs as companions and assistants – and AIs need guidance from people. AIs we create can interact with humans in ways that are understandable, trustworthy, and ethically applied.

FCAI to work with The Alan Turing Institute on Data Science
The Alan Turing Institute and The Finnish Centre for Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), formally creating an ambitious agreement centred around the Turing’s data-centric engineering programme.
Significant boost for AI research from the Academy of Finland
The Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) has been selected as a Flagship of the Academy of Finland, which is a status granted to a very few selected centers of excellence with high societal impact.
FCAI SOCIETY: UNDERSTANDING AI ACROSS SCIENTIFIC DIVIDES
As we pursue a holistic view of artificial intelligence across scientific borders, FCAI has sought experts from philosophy, ethics, sociology, legal studies, psychology and art to explore the impact AI will have in all aspects of our lives.
