AI can help solve major societal challenges and provide significant benefits in a variety of areas. AI offers significant potential for the Nordic countries in business and public sector activities. The potential lies in implementing today's technology and know-how to increase efficiency and value creation, and in continued development where AI tools become more user-friendly and available for broad use, and in the long term, more advanced in more application areas. Widespread use of AI in the economy can double the economic growth potential in the long term.
All Nordic countries have strongly regulated data environments based on common values and understanding of ethical standards regarding security and responsibility of collecting, sharing, and using data. Therefore, a joint Nordic program creates:
- Increased access to data that supports Nordic companies' digital opportunities and contribute to the development of technologies such as artificial intelligence.
- Increased Nordic opportunities for digital and data-driven interaction between the public and private sectors.
Budget: Up to NOK 1 000 000 (excl. VAT).
