Finland's grand AI experiment

The government of Finland is positioning its country as the leader in practical applications of Artificial Intelligence technology by providing its citizens with a free course. Recognizing the potential in AI technology, and the coming shifts in the global economy that will favor countries well versed in these technologies, the government has partnered with the University of Helsinki and a consulting agency named Reaktor to develop the free course. “We’ll never have so much money that we will be the leader of artificial intelligence. But how we use it — that’s something different," says one minister.
