The roadmap to how the Nordics can become leading in ethical and responsible AI by 2030

The Nordic Ethical AI Expert Group will present their five recommendations for concrete actions on how the Nordics can become leading in ethical and responsible AI by 2030.

The 23 leading Nordic experts with expertise in the development/deployment of ethical AI and with a background from industry, academia and civil society have develop a roadmap for how the Nordic region can become leading within ethical AI. The aim of the Nordic Ethical AI Expert Group’s work is to create a channel between political objectives and the needs of the Nordic AI ecosystem. The recommendations are targeted at the policymakers in the Nordics but also action takers in the ecosystem.
