About AI in Amsterdam

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to be the defining technology of the future. As an established hub for technology and science, the Amsterdam Area is on its way to becoming a world leader in the field, with a focus on health, business innovation and ethics.

What makes Amsterdam a great place for AI?

Churning out some of the most innovative uses for AI in the world, Amsterdam provides an effective living lab for AI solutions. Machine learning plays a key role in Amsterdam's business landscape, driving a new approach to the fintech, creative, and life sciences and health sectors. Continuous collaborations between academic, private and public organisations are pushing AI in other areas of business and society as well.

What truly distinguishes Amsterdam is that innovation and entrepreneurship often come with a human-centred approach to AI. This includes ensuring early processes such as data collection happen in an ethical way, and that the outcome actually improves citizens' lives. One such initiative is Amsterdam AI, technology for people, a programme designed to help the city develop and deploy responsible tech in the field of AI.

Cultivating talent in the field 

Businesses in Amsterdam don’t need to look too far for AI talent. The city’s two universities offer a joint masters programme in AI and forward-looking academies allow students to apply real-world practice with major corporations. Plus, Amsterdam is already home to many academic labs that work closely with the industry, such as the Qualcomm-QUVA Lab, ICAI, and UvA-Bosch DELTA Lab, all situated at Amsterdam Science Park, the region's lively hub for AI and big data science.
