A January 18 announcement from the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations shows that the government of the Netherlands will commit €204.5M ($22.07M). The fund seeks to boost local investment in artificial intelligence and ensure the nation ‘is not left out’ regarding this technology.
Dutch Government Seeks Enhanced Competitiveness in AI
According to the announcement, the U.S. and Asia are leading in using responsible generative artificial intelligence. The Dutch government seeks to improve the nation’s and the European Union’s (EU’s) competitiveness and pave the way for advancing this technology.
The government intends to initiate campaigns to teach people about safeguarding information from generative artificial intelligence. Additionally, an inquiry is into developing a safe and purposeful national artificial intelligence testing facility for public use.
The announcement explained the government’s plan for leveraging generative artificial intelligence systems such as ChatGPT while safeguarding against risks such as decreased job opportunities and misrepresentation.
Netherlands Seek Compliance with EU Artificial Intelligence Legislation
The Netherlands would also start complying with the European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act, which controls the governmental utilization of the technology and creates regulations to comply with before market entry.
In December last year, the European Parliament and Council agreed on a risk-founded structure for regulating artificial intelligence. However, some details are still being agreed upon, and its formal enactment is yet to happen.
Robbert Dijkgraaf, the Dutch Minister for Education, Culture, and Science, noted that the idea is to create and retain artificial intelligence talent. This will permit them to create forms of generative artificial intelligence that meet Europe’s values and standards.
Further, Robbert also noted that the government is considering investing in considerable technological and scientific resources, for instance, supercomputers, for the European Union and the Netherlands.
Specifically, he said they are considering investments in large-scale technological and scientific infrastructure, such as computing power and supercomputers, at the European Union and national level. This will promote competitiveness in the large language models (LLMs) field and other generative AI forms.
