In May 2019, the Czech Republic released its National AI strategy that builds on both the Innovation strategy 2019-2030 and the Digital Czech Republic strategy. The aim of this AI strategy is to improve the national economic growth and competitiveness in AI by means of:
- a responsible and trusted AI ecosystem;
- the digitalisation of enterprises, in particular SMEs;
- equitable opportunities and benefits in AI to boost the economic development of society.
To achieve these objectives, the Czech Government envisages policy actions across key areas like education, R&D support, financing, industry, social impacts, regulation and international cooperation. The Ministry of Industry and Trade will coordinate the overall AI strategy, while the Ministry of competence will coordinate each specific key area.
