The Catalan Government has recently created AIRA (Artificial Intelligence Research Alliance of Catalonia), an alliance to foster and coordinate its strategy in Artificial Intelligence, aimed to the promotion of scientific research, talent management and acceleration of the development of solutions based on artificial intelligence in Catalonia.
In its kick-off, AIRA is constituted by the Computer Vision Center (CVC); the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC); the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA); the Institute of Robotics and Industrial Informatics (IIRI) and the Intelligent Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research Center (IDEAl-UPC).
AIRA is an initiative promoted by the Department of the Vice-Presidency and Digital and Territorial Policies, and the Department of Research and Universities within the framework of the Artificial Intelligence Strategy of Catalonia (CATALONIA.AI). It is configured as a cooperative workspace, in which the catalan’s leading institutes and research centers in artificial intelligence will developed a coordinated strategy.
