Introducing the “Large AI Grand Challenge” – an Open invitation for Europe’s Generative AI community, designed as a big competition to spark the creativity of researchers, visionaries and founders from Europe and Horizon Europe associated countries.
Large-scale AI models refer to a new generation of general-purpose AI systems that can adapt to various domains and tasks without significant modification. Thanks to their adaptability, these models hold immense potential to revolutionise various industries. Notable examples of large-scale AI models include OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Meta’s LLaMA 2. It is of strategic importance for European sovereignty to ensure European companies master this field.
This competition was carefully planned to focus on European startups and SMEs deeply involved with large-scale AI models. It aims to harness their potential, foster groundbreaking solutions, and ultimately, fortify Europe’s position at the forefront of AI innovation.
AI-BOOST stands for “Artificial Intelligence for better opportunities and scientific progress towards a trustworthy and human-centric digital environment”.
AI-BOOST is an EU-funded prominent open challenge prize programme that will serve as a benchmark for the European artificial intelligence (AI) community.
The overall objective of the project is to create and run highly replicable AI open innovation competitions that attracts the outstanding talent all over EU and Associated Countries to drive scientific progress in the major AI Areas. The project will foster collaboration between the key stakeholders in AI community to define attractive AI challenges with the potential to lead trustworthy and human-centric real-world solutions.
The project aims to achieve several significant impacts, with its central objectives focused on establishing and managing highly scalable AI open innovation competitions.
