Major interests and opportunities for the Netherlands with AI

The long-term public-private programme AiNed is taking the Netherlands into the leading group of AI countries and making a major contribution to the country’s competitive position internationally. The largest possible proportion of the potential economic growth and recovery of 1.6% GDP will be achieved (as estimated by the McKinsey Global Institute, 2020). The programme will allow the Netherlands to maintain a strategic grip on the way AI is applied and the conditions imposed on such use.

Bottlenecks and solution strategies

The Netherlands has a good starting position in machine learning, hybrid AI systems and responsible use of AI.  Successfully harnessing the potential of AI will not happen by itself, though, because there are bottlenecks in areas such as innovation, the knowledge base, the labour market, society and data sharing.

Approach

The bottlenecks are tackled by working together on large-scale projects with a unique learning approach and chain approach that has human centric AI at the forefront. The parties working together are from the ‘quadruple helix’ of government, education and research, business, societal organisations and the public. That yields AI-based solutions ranging from sustainable energy supply to optimised mobility, and from reliable media to affordable healthcare.
