Artificial intelligence has been identified as one of the most important technologies of our time. It can create new economic growth and thereby promote wellbeing. Access to more efficient and inexpensive computing capacity, growth of the volume of data available to artificial intelligence, and the development of algorithms have resulted in the acceleration of AI development and utilisation. A growing number of countries have recognised the opportunities provided by artificial intelligence and have prepared a national artificial intelligence strategy. In 2017, Finland was among the first countries to launch an Artificial Intelligence Programme. The objective of the programme was to make Finland a leader in the application of artificial intelligence. In this report, the Programme’s steering group and secretariat comment on the progress made during the programme, and give recommendations for the future. These are examined in the context of case studies from the business world and views offered by a panel of AI professionals.
