Well tested - half done
Finland wants to boost its position as a frontrunner in artificial intelligence (AI). The Prime Minister's Office’s key project known as ‘Experimental Finland’ is now looking for challenges which could be responded to using AI to foster wellbeing. The topics that will be chosen from the application for challenges will later generate an application for pilot projects.
Promoting piloting and experimenting is one of the key projects of Prime Minister Juha Sipilä's Government. The Prime Minister’s Office has created a ‘Place to Experiment’ platform in collaboration with the Finnish experimental community. The Prime Minister's Office and Motiva will now work together to develop ways and means to promote piloting and experimenting.
Friday, 13 October 2017, is the International Day for Failure. The Experimental Finland team of the Prime Minister’s Office is organising the event Herozerohero where people can openly talk about their personal view on success and failure.
The pilot projects have been selected on the circular economy. The application for the first round of pilots at the Place to Experiment was used to particularly seek small-scale pilots to promote the circular economy in the ways we live, eat and move about. 21 pilots were selected for funding. The pilot projects will be primarily carried out during 2017.
Humans have a natural ability and desire to develop their living environment. By creating an environment for experimenting and piloting, we offer a fertile ground for this inclination to evolve from ideas into action.
