Academy Professor Samuel Kaski takes part in shaping Finland’s AI future

Professor Kaski is a member of the new steering group preparing a proposal for Finland’s artificial intelligence programme.

Artificial intelligence has become a core element of digitalization and Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä appointed a steering group with the goal of getting Finland to the top of the world in the application of artificial intelligence. The steering group has members from the academia, industry and public sectors, including Academy Professor Samuel Kaski from the Department of Computer Science, Aalto University.

The goal requires collaboration between companies, research institutes, educational institutions and public organizations. Both companies and the public sector need to change the way they operate. Education in the field has to be increased and also the competence of people already in working life must be improved.

“This topic is important for Finland for many reasons, and I will be glad to contribute. Aalto naturally already does much of its share in research and education, but even though it is a pioneer, a few things still remain to be done”, summarizes Professor Kaski.
