Towards an AI strategy: How can Switzerland make itself fit for the opportunities and challenges of AI?

41 participants

The challenge:

Simultaneously regarded as the 21st century’s biggest hope and most dire threat coming from the tech world, artificial intelligence has sparked considerable policy debates in governments, international organizations, and various other fora. In the past two years, more than 20 countries  have released or announced national AI strategies, with priorities ranging from science and education to ethics and regulation. Yet to this day, Switzerland has not delivered a comprehensive and coordinated response to AI policy, other than announcing the creation of a working group on the topic within the federal administration.

To complement this effort, swissnex San Francisco and the Swiss foreign policy think tank foraus are launching an open dialogue on Switzerland’s position on AI with respect to the rest of the world. This is your chance to influence the Swiss AI strategy from the very start: 

How would you make Switzerland fit for the opportunities and challenges of AI? What elements should a Swiss AI strategy contain? 

Submit your ideas before December 17 online (‘create idea’ button above) or at one of the following workshops: 

Your ideas will be consolidated by swissnex San Francisco and foraus into a single text that will be shared with the federal working group and the public in early 2019. 

Want even more? We can help you develop your idea into full policy paper with the support of experts!
