I am a key supporter of the CLAIRE initiative

I am a key supporter of CLAIRE initiative. CLAIRE stands for Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe. The initiative was prompted in part by a letter of intent, signed by 25 European countries on 10 April 2018, to increase their efforts on strengthening research, innovation and collaboration on AI, a subsequent Communication from the Commission on 25 April with a preliminary AI strategy; it was also inspired by an earlier call for establishing a European laboratory to promote excellence in machine learning, known as ELLIS.
