About 2,100 artificial intelligence (AI) researchers from 29 European countries have announced a joint research alliance and are soliciting funding from the European Union (EU) to counter progress in such research in the U.S. and China.
The Confederation of Laboratories for AI Research in Europe (CLAIRE) is calling on the European Commission to deploy an EU-wide AI strategy similar to U.S. and Chinese initiatives, to cultivate and retain AI talent by establishing research and development centers that support "Google-scale" infrastructure.
The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence Research's Philipp Slusallek says, "Europe has a very strong tradition in AI and was also among the leaders in AI in the past."
CLAIRE says European progress in AI technology is highly reliant on government funding, as such research in Europe is not driven by the private sector to the same degree it is in China and the U.S.
