AI Sweden is setting up a matchmaking initiative to help apply AI to real-world problems – the AI Challenge Platform!
AI.se is the starting point for all AI-related research and development in Sweden! This is an opportunity for you that have a research Challenge that you suspect AI can solve, but lack the expertise, network, or time to take the next step… or maybe you’re already using AI, but are looking for ways of accelerating development or taking a new direction… or maybe you want to attract some new talent to your group? By publishing a Challenge with AI.se, you will reach a broad audience of other Challenge owners, but perhaps more importantly, AI solvers and experts throughout Sweden! For many, AI is a solution without a problem and this is your chance to let your Challenge find a solution.
The call is open to everyone in Sweden that has a Challenge that can potentially be solved with AI.
The Challenges will first be publicly published at AI.se while also being added to a database that AI.se affiliated experts can search/browse. Three types of actors that are presently most heavily involved as AI solvers are:
- Researchers and research groups (academic or industrial). This could be people interested in a joint grant application, have funding of their own, or are interested in applying their methods on exciting Challenges right away.
- The consultant market. This could entail Challenge owners “buying” the expertise they need.
- The broader “AI sphere”. With support from AI.se, a Challenge can lead to the development of a hackathon type open competition (with data made public, etc.) that anyone can work to solve.
Other universities and research organizations, large companies, funding agencies… and more. As momentum around AI continues to grow—and Challenges get solved by it—new grant calls directed at specific Challenges, new education areas, and even new professions may open up in the future.
The publication and dissemination of the Challenges is curated by AI.se: they know what’s needed and what’s possible and can provide support with refining your challenge, targeting the solution makers, and even protecting your ideas, if needed! You will of course have the opportunity to review the Challenge text before it’s publicly published, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to get the ball rolling.
The call for Challenge Owners will be open for as long as it is relevant, but don’t wait to get started on what might be the beginning of a new solution for your Challenge!
