Ireland’s National AI Strategy

Ireland has not yet released their national AI strategy. They did however a few days ago submit a progress report. Their country report was created on the 25th of February 2020. This document has been prepared in the context of AI Watch and the OECD AI Policy Observatory.

Ireland is one of the last countries to deliver their national AI strategy, and they have not done so yet.

The National AI Strategy for Ireland, under the working title of “AI — Here for Good”, will provide a high-level direction to the design, development and adoption of AI in Ireland.

It will present an integrated, cross-Government framework giving direction for the steps needed to ensure that Ireland’s use of AI will benefit society.

  1. Enterprise development and deployment of AI;
  2. RD&I;
  3. Human capital considerations;
  4. Data;
  5. Digital and connective infrastructure;
  6. public sector use of AI;
