Artificial intelligence has made a tremendous leap forward in recent years. The influence of AI will be felt in all sectors and sections of society in the coming years. Building on the AI Policy Plan, Flanders is preparing its society for this evolution.
Through a leadership strategy where development and implementation of AI are concerned, Flanders aims to reap the full economic and social benefits. The Flemish government approved the Artificial Intelligence Policy Plan on March, 22 in 2019 to support this ambition. It provides an annual investment of EUR 32 million and consists of 3 parts that complement and reinforce each other.
- Part 1. Strengthen basic strategic research - The Flanders AI Research Program
- Part 2. Stimulate the use of AI in companies
- Part 3. Awareness creation, training and ethical framework
