About NL AIC

Artificial Intelligence is a determining factor for our future prosperity and well-being. Due to its generic nature, AI will have an impact on all business sectors, our private lives, and society as a whole. The diligence with which we act now determines the control over our future with significant effects within the coming ten years.

Therefore, the Netherlands must build and maintain a distinctive position in both the development and application of AI. Only by a proactive approach in AI we can, as a country, influence how AI will be applied to social and economic challenges and how we can genuinely benefit from it. AI is not the end goal in itself, but a powerful means, to maintain and expand our international competitive position and to solve economic and societal issues.
