The cabinet approved a national strategy for Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Communications Minister Yiannis Karousos announced on Monday.
If approved by the House of Representatives, it will be implemented by a new deputy ministry of innovation and digital transformation, he said.
“The national strategy gives us the opportunity to become pioneers in the field of Artificial Intelligence, as we now occupy the 19th position in the EU,” Karousos commented.
“The strategy is based on four key pillars set by the European Commission, which are to maximise investment through partnerships, to create national databases, to nurture talents and lifelong learning, and of course to develop ethical and trustworthy Artificial Intelligence.”
The European Commission plan proposes joint actions for closer and more efficient cooperation between member states, Norway, Switzerland and the commission in the four key areas.
“Stronger coordination is essential for Europe to become the world-leading region for developing and deploying cutting-edge, ethical and secure AI,” the commission stated.
