FCAI BUILDS A NATION-WIDE FINNISH COMPETENCE CENTER FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.
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.
Artificial Intelligence is expected to become the technology with the biggest business and societal impact over the near future. Education, government, social welfare and work and employment will be drastically impacted by the transformation it brings.
The Finnish government has launched a national AI Strategy and Program that outlines a set of key actions. By successfully applying AI, Finland can reach a €20-billion and 8% annual boost in GDP by the year 2023. With focused AI-based activities in business, net employment can increase by up to 5%.
A basic requirement is to set up an international AI hub, which attracts key players around the world and supports Finland in becoming a leading country in the application of AI.
FCAI will be that hub.
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.
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.
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.
