Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Germany

On November 15, 2018, the Federal Government of Germany adopted a national AI strategy and allocated from 2019 up to 2025 a sum of  €3 billion for investment in AI research and development. With this, Germany aims to safeguard its competitiveness and become a leading centre for AI research worldwide, deploy AI responsibly for societal good, and “integrate AI in society in ethical, legal, cultural and institutional terms in the context of a broad societal dialogue and active political measures”.

As a highly industrialized country with a long tradition of collaboration between engineering and academia, Germany is well prepared for this development. Attracting AI talent from all over the world and forging relationships with the relevant international partners will be of prime importance for the best possible use of these resources.
