Industry cluster for applied artificial intelligence
The Cluster for Applied AI will contribute to Norway taking a leading position in the profitable and sustainable application of artificial intelligence (AI) in a business context.
The rapid development of digital technologies has led many public and private sector organizations to consider or start using AI for operational improvement, efficiency improvement, and product and service development.
New technologies and business innovation are constantly opening up new areas for the application of AI, and the cluster will be a hub for capturing these opportunities. Several reports and strategies, including Digital21 and the government's AI strategy, point out that knowledge of, and ability to exploit, the competitive advantages that AI can provide will be critical to enable organizations to create competitive innovation in the future.
Main objectives of the cluster
Growth through skills development
Members are provided with relevant expertise related to the innovation and application of AI within their markets through training, knowledge sharing and exchange of experience.
Sustainable application and commercialization of AI
Through good tools. Members get help in understanding the customer, accessing and structuring data, using AI to streamline and develop new solutions, business development, ethics, privacy, IPR and security.
Building a national team for applied AI
Further develop a national ecosystem in applied AI where the best environments work together to develop Norwegian companies. We will not succeed in this area if we do not work together.
Through collaborative development. Members gain access to contacts, capital, expertise and visibility through national and international projects and networks.
What do cluster partners get?
We offer actors in the AI value chain access to relevant national and international networks, skills development, support for funding processes, and enable research and innovation by facilitating and developing programs and projects that connect problem owners and problem solvers. This results in increased global competitiveness and sustainable growth for the benefit of society.Cluster membership
The cluster's contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
AI has great potential to make a positive contribution to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and research shows that the technology can contribute to the realization of all the goals if done in the right way. One example of this is that through streamlining logistics and production, AI can contribute to more efficient use of resources.
However, CI can also be used for purposes that are unethical, increase social inequalities, create echo chambers and one-sided or misleading communication, or overexploit natural resources. Therefore, to ensure the right use of CI, the contribution of the activity to sustainability is always assessed, which is anchored in the cluster's mission and main objectives.
"The cluster's companies will become internationally leading, data-driven, efficient and customer-focused through the development and use of sustainably applied AI."
