“The CLAIRE vision –based on excellence and human-centred research and innovation– provides a blueprint to steer AI as a transformative force for the benefit of all.”
Ricardo Chavarriaga, Head of CLAIRE Switzerland
CLAIRE seeks to strengthen European excellence in AI research and innovation. The network forms a pan-European Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe. Its member groups and organisations are committed to working together towards realising the vision of CLAIRE: European excellence across all of AI, for all of Europe, with a human-centred focus.
Founded in January 2020, the CLAIRE office Switzerland.Given the strength of its academic and industrial ecosystem, its economic landscape and tradition on the protection of human rights, Switzerland plays an essential role in the advancement of human-centred AI.
We are focusing on empowering the Swiss AI community by connecting European partners and fostering the development of ethical humane, trustworthy AI-powered solutions that are compatible with the social and economic interests of all humans.
For this purpose, the CLAIRE office Switzerland is establishing an active network comprising academia, industry, public entities and international organizations. We actively engage with media and general public through outreach and participatory activities that inform society at large about the state-of-the-art in AI and provide spaces to discuss the effects of these technologies. CLAIRE Switzerland is currently supported and hosted by ZHAW digital , Zurich University of Applied Sciences Winterthur.
Our extensive network forms a pan-European Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe. We explore potentials, connect the brightest minds in AI research, industry and politics for a technological future in Europe.
Created in April 2018, the idea of CLAIRE emerged after the EC communication “Artificial Intelligence for Europe” which laid down the European approach to AI. Find out more about CLAIRE on our website.
