The world of AI develops very fast. Some people say, that the world, in last year, changed faster than we, as humans, can count. In order to stay ahead, in the Netherlands we decided to setup a website where we can share knowledge, setup events and see the latest developments. Our purpose is to centralize AI developments and help The Netherlands, one of the best developing countries when it comes to AI development in Europe.

First, let me introduce myself. I’m Antoine Aarts and my role here is CAI (Chief Artificial Intelligence). I have been working in the world of IT since 1984. And as you can guess I’ve seen many developments. Exactly because of this I recognise the importance of staying ahead, or at least on par with AI developments. Just to give you an idea: last year I was in San Jose at a PYTORCH congress, where on the topic of object recognition they showed the progress of an entire year. Depending on how you look at it, but in that year the number of recognitions doubled 16 times.

And much more developments are going on at each level of our society when it comes to AI. In politics it is important to set borders and rules, in business it is important to stay ahead of competition, in healthcare there can be a huge increase in quality and the costs can be much more under control. In Climate control we see a lot of developments where AI can help to create a much better life environment.

I hope you will enjoy this website and we are open for feedback in order to improve it. If you want to stay tuned, please register for our newsletter, and we will send you the latest developments and a summary of the blogposts.
