VTT will bring their strong industry networks and their know-how in applied technology to the FCAI community. Their help will enforce FCAI’s ability to take the top research in both founding universities to far-ranging and efficient use in companies, public organisations and society at large.

FCAI promotes high-quality research and education on artificial intelligence in Finland and the applicability of AI to benefit companies and society. VTT will expand FCAI’s ability to speed up the necessary renewal and competitiveness of Finnish industry through AI-based innovations.

FCAI’s strives to make the new generation of AI methods a reality: create AIs that are understandable, trustworthy, and data-efficient. FCAI wishes to expand into a national network of universities, companies and research institutions who will lay the groundwork for Finland becoming a global leader in AI research and different AI applications.

Growth in any strand of industry largely depends on the ability to make use of cutting-edge technology. Artificial intelligence is the key leverage here.

‘Our vision is to have our high-class research in several strands of artificial research benefit people's every-day lives, companies and public bodies. FCAI’s impact is a potent mixture of research, a network of growing companies, advanced education and training in AI, innovative products and services, and smart experiments in public organisations,’ says Head of FCAI, Academy Professor Samuel Kaski.  

‘The single most significant growth factor now is applying artificial intelligence and ICT in general. For citizens, new innovations and solutions promise change in the content of their work and skills, and the services society provides. At best, this will mean, for instance, that AI will make medical care more efficient and personalised,’ says Tua Huomo, Executive Vice President at VTT.  

FCAI is building a national hub of universities, research institutes, industry and the private sector and public organisations with strong international networks. The FCAI community is expanding, and new memberships and projects are negotiated constantly.
