The annual Nordic State of AI report report, published in November 2022, provides an overview of the use of artificial intelligence in the Nordic region, with the goal of offering business leaders, academics, policymakers, as well as anyone interested, a comprehensive look at what’s really going on in Nordic AI.

Nordic State of AI

Our annual report on the Nordic State of AI provides an overview of the use of artificial intelligence in the Nordic region, with the goal of offering business leaders, academics, policymakers, as well as anyone interested a comprehensive look at what’s really going on in Nordic AI.

We often talk about leveraging networks to reach scale with AI. True to that, we’ve expanded our collaboration from past years to 15 governmental or research organizations across Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden who were involved in the creation of this year’s report. We would like to extend special thanks and gratitude to our partners who helped make this report better by providing us with information, interviewees, and local knowledge: AI Pioneer Center in Denmark, Business Finland, Chalmers, Danish Industry Digital Futures, Digital Norway FCAI, KTH Royal Institute of Technology NORA, Nordic Innovation, Norwegian Cognitive Center, Silo AI, Vainu, Smart Innovation Norway, Swedish AI Society, and Women in AI Finland.

As a fortunate side product of assembling this report together, we’re also strengthening these networks across the region and getting one step closer to the Nordic success of AI.

Story behind the landscape

Mika Marjalaakso // Something Inc & Oak Ventures:

The idea of having one publicly available up-to-date and curated list of relevant Finnish artificial intelligence (AI) companies was born in 2017 when I was mapping the landscape for the Tax Authorities. Although many were doing the same research on their own, it seemed that a public and official list was missing. A first rough list was created with the help of the community, but it was not actively updated or curated. When First AI Accelerator offered their help maintaining the landscape it was an easy say – here we are now! 

Antti Poikola // First AI Accelerator:

First AI Accelerator got started in the Autumn 2018. One of our first jobs was to quickly gain a comprehensive understanding of the AI players in Finland. I got introduced to Mika Marjalaakso and the earlier started AI landscape initiative. I hope that the landscape evolves into a useful and valuable resource which is develop transparently and based on clear criteria – feedback is important, so please be in touch!
