During the early years of WASP, much effort was invested in drawing the current and possible future map of available infrastructure for AI, Swedish research excellens, and the technology readiness in Swedish industry within WASP's scientific fields. The following reports are part of the results of this investment.

Cover picture AI4X reportThis report surveys the condition of AI and its use within various sectors in Sweden. During spring 2018, industrial leaders, business leaders and researchers gathered for the conference series AI4X and this report is one result from the meetings.

With contributions from 195 speakers, with 100 representatives from industry and 95 from the academic world, the report provides an overall image of how AI is currently used in Sweden. The report also discusses how work in AI should develop, and makes recommendations at the national level for how the academic world and industry together can ensure that Sweden remains at the forefront of research and development in artificial intelligence.

Some of the report’s recommendations:

  • Draw up a Swedish research agenda for AI
  • Invest in multidisciplinary research – the very nature of work in artificial intelligence is multidisciplinary
  • Create a strengthened ecosystem – courses and programmes in AI must also be improved to increase knowledge about AI throughout society
  • Create an active and vital discussion concerning digitalisation and artificial intelligence
  • Use Sweden as a testing ground, where new technology and applications can be tested and evaluated.
