Frank van Harmelen on NPO Radio: On the need for a Europe-wide AI Initiative

Artificial Intelligence: Europe is lagging behind

Frank van Harmelen features on NPO Radio on why he feels scientists in Europe are lagging behind China and the United States in the field of artificial intelligence. China and the U.S. are investing billions and luring scientific talent away from Europe with high salaries and excellent research facilities in the field of AI.

The brain drain of students and researchers is affecting Dutch universities, with Professors finding it increasingly difficult to find PhD candidates to conduct research. Companies are seducing students with high salaries and working conditions.

In order to catch up with the competition, Europe must establish a high-quality scientific institute. This is the aim of CLAIRE (Confederation of Laborations for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe).
