Artificial intelligence, AI, is the ability of computer programs and robots to mimic the intelligence of humans and other animals. An AI can learn things from previous experiences. For example understand speaking and text, solve problems or plan a sequence of actions. Within AI we have several important sub areas, such as machine learning, data mining and computer vision. Examples of AI applications are voice control, business intelligence, face recognition and self-driving cars.
AI Sweden is the Swedish National Center for applied Artificial Intelligence, supported by the Swedish government and the public and private sectors across the country. To fulfill our mission we run projects of national interest in areas such as information-driven healthcare, AI solutions for the Swedish language, data-driven journalism, and AI to help tackle climate change. We provide targeted training for our partners and the general public. Our Data Factory enables our partners to make available and access data and make use of computing power and storage capacity in AI projects.
We want to contribute to a culture of sharing, cooperation, and action in the Swedish AI-ecosystem. And, that is why we run all our initiatives in collaboration with our 100 partners. In the end, the purpose of our efforts is to improve the quality of life for all people living in Sweden.
AI Swedens East Office is hosted by Linköping Science Park.
AI Sweden is a partner organisation and while we provide an infrastructure in terms of both personell, know-how and hardware, we need the commitment and engagement from our partners to create real value and make real impact with our activities. Accelerating applied AI in Sweden through collaboration.
Our partner offering always have dual goals: Enabling partners to explore and use AI, while at the same time accelerating applied AI in Sweden. Both these goals aim at strengthening Swedish competetiveness and welfare.
It is important to note that we are not a consultancy providing tailored end-to-end services. Rather, all our activities will require a commitment from partners to invest time and effort to engage and retain maximum value from our activities, often in collaboration with others.

We would love to keep in touch, there are several ways to contact and interact with us, here are some!
AI Sweden organize events and workshops with actors from both businesses, the academia and the public sector. One example is this digital event from the Sweden Innovation Days (2020) where AI Sweden along with Linköping Science Park and LEAD invited AI initiatives to present. Watch one of the presenters, Professor Tino Ebbers from Linköping University, below!
Tino Ebbers is a researcher at AIDA (Analytic Imaging Diagnostics Arena). His research deals with the use AI for diagnostics, mainly as a help to radiologists and other medical professionals. According to his work, tasks that would manually would take 20-30 minutes can be performed in 2-3 minutes using AI.
“AI will not take the job from radiologists. On the contrary it will create more work as it gives us more opportunities.”
Do you have questions or ideas about AI in the East Sweden Region? We would love to hear from you!
AI is part of Smart, secure and robust connected products and systems, one of five regional strength areas in the East Sweden Region. The coordinator for the strength area is Linköping Science Park.
