The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Analysis Basis) is funding 9 synthetic intelligence initiatives in cooperation with the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR, France) and the Japan Science and Know-how Company (JST, Japan). Primarily based on evaluate statements by internationally famend specialists, the DFG Joint Committee and the competent ANR and JST committees have now chosen these 9 trilateral initiatives from among the many 36 undertaking proposals submitted. Researchers from all three international locations shall be cooperating on these initiatives, which is able to obtain funding amounting to roughly €7 million from the establishments concerned; the funding shall be unfold over a interval of three years. The DFG will solely be offering the undertaking funding required by the scientists in Germany, i.e. roughly €2.four million. The ANR and JST shall be continuing in the identical manner.
In April 2019, the DFG, ANR and JST determined to problem a name for a joint funding initiative for synthetic intelligence primarily based not solely on standards of scientific excellence but in addition on an analogous system of values. The three companions are satisfied that the topic of synthetic intelligence is ideally fitted to a joint name, since it’s globally related and could be addressed notably successfully by adopting a multi-national strategy. The initiative is meant to give attention to analysis questions regarding fundamental methodical approaches, autonomous decision-making methods, and approaches to interplay between people and synthetic intelligence methods.
In July 2019, the DFG, ANR and JST accordingly issued a name for proposals for trilateral interdisciplinary analysis initiatives within the space of synthetic intelligence. The proposals had been reviewed throughout a digital evaluate session held on 2 September 2020 – earlier plans needed to be modified as a result of coronavirus pandemic. 4 reviewers from every of the international locations concerned said their place on the 36 proposals submitted.
The 9 initiatives chosen to obtain funding shall be launched on 16 November 2020 at a kick-off occasion to happen through the “Japan-France-Germany Trilateral Symposium on AI”. For the DFG, the trilateral cooperation is one among a number of modules meant to advertise analysis within the space of synthetic intelligence. Up till 2022, initiatives in all areas of AI analysis shall be granted funding inside the framework of assorted DFG programmes that can make up a strategic funding initiative.
