The goal of the Artificial Intelligence Coalition (AI Coalition), initiated by Dr. László Palkovics, Minister of Technology and Industry, is for Hungary to be at the forefront of artificial intelligence developments and applications in Europe and to become an important member of the international AI community.
The intention of the founders of the AI Coalition was to establish a permanent professional and cooperation forum for AI developers, market and government actors representing the user side of AI, the academic sphere, professional organizations, in order to jointly define the directions and frameworks for the domestic development of artificial intelligence.
The AI Coalition together with the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (its successor: the Ministry of Technology and Industry) created Hungary's Artificial Intelligence Strategy for the period 2020-2030, which was adopted by Government Resolution 1573/2020 (IX.9).
