Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming everyday life and the life of companies on a rapid scale, and the growing importance of the data economy cannot be overemphasized. But where are the domestic developments, and what does it take for Hungary to stand on the international stage in the global artificial intelligence competition?
Thanks to the AI Strategy announced in September 2020, we can see dynamic development on both the regulatory and market fronts. A joint event of the AI Coalition, which brings together the best of the Hungarian AI ecosystem, and the Ministry for Innovation and Technology provide a snapshot of the results of this process. At the stands, prominent Hungarian representatives will present their AI applications, while at the conference, meaningful lectures will provide an overview of where Hungarian AI efforts are taking place.
Artificial Intelligence National Laboratory project of the Centre for Social Sciences (TK MILAB) is also represented by one of its sub-projects (Zoltán Kmetty (CSS-RECENS), Bence Ságvári (CSS-RECENS) and external researcher Eszter Rita Katona). As part of the TK MILAB project, the research team will study the development of vaccination resistance in Hungary from the autumn of 2020. Millions of articles and comments have been processed with state-of-the-art NLP and AI solutions. At the exhibition, those interested can try out a platform that interactively shows how the discourse on vaccines has developed in Hungarian online public discourse and how the volume of vaccination has changed at different stages of the pandemic. The platform is a prototype of a policy decision support system that will be able to monitor the online footprint of social and political issues in real time.
The exhibition is open to public on June 16.
The event is free, but registration is required: https://kiallitas.ai-hungary.com/
