AI4EU will efficiently build a comprehensive European AI-on-demand platform to lower barriers to innovation, to boost technology transfer and catalyse the growth of start-ups and SMEs in all sectors through Open calls and other actions. The platform will act as a broker, developer and one-stop shop providing and showcasing services, expertise, algorithms, software frameworks, development tools, components, modules, data, computing resources, prototyping functions and access to funding. Training will enable different user communities (engineers, civic leaders, etc.) to obtain skills and certifications. The AI4EU Platform will establish a world reference, built upon and interoperable with existing AI and data components (e.g. the Acumos open-source framework, QWT search engine..) and platforms. It will mobilize the whole European AI ecosystem and already unites 80 partners in 21 countries including researchers, innovators and related talents. Eight industry-driven AI pilots will demonstrate the value of the platform as an innovation tool.


FBK will actively contribute to the definition of the human-centered AI framework, bringing into the project its competences on automated reasoning, machine learning, planning and acting; it will also steer the process of integrating all the contribution of the other partners in such a framework. FBK will provide the framework for integrating logical reasoning with statistical inference. It will participate to the development of an AI-powered assistant to support citizens in their interactions with the Public Administration, as well as to its demonstration and validation in collaboration with Public Administrations of the Trento Region.
