"AI4EU" - Dr Mueller part of successful EU artificial intelligence grant

Dr Vincent C. Mueller, together with Professor Anthony Cohn (Engineering), are part of the new H2020 project: AI4EU "A European AI On Demand Platform and Ecosystem"

The project will start in January 2019 and aims to efficiently build a European AI-on-demand platform to lower barriers to innovation, 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 and other dedicated platforms.

In order to enhance the platform, research on five key interconnected AI scientific areas will be carried out using platform technologies and results will be implemented. The pilots and research will showcase how AI4EU can stimulate scientific discovery and technological.

An AI4EU Ethical Observatory will be established to ensure the respect of human centred AI values and European regulations. Sustainability will be ensured via the creation of the AI4EU Foundation.

The results will feed a new and very comprehensive Strategic Research Innovation Agenda for Europe.

Dr Mueller is already involved in the H2020 project INBOTS: "Inclusive Robotics for a better society", which looks to bring together experts from diff­erent disciplines involved in the understanding and acceptance of Interactive Robotics, promoting the collaboration between four pillars and six areas of expertise (technical, legal, business, socioeconomic, standardisation, etc).
