Greek Government Forms Advisory Committee on Artificial Intelligence
The Greek government has established an advisory committee on artificial intelligence (AI) to prepare the country for the advances and applications of this technology. The committee was created under the decision of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with the objective of ensuring that Greece can benefit from the opportunities presented by AI while also addressing potential challenges and risks.
The committee, which includes some of the leading experts in the field, will provide evidence-backed advice and proposals on how Greece can leverage AI in various sectors, such as the economy, society, innovation, infrastructure, climate crisis management, and human resources development.
Among the members of the committee is Constantinos Daskalakis, a renowned scientist and professor at MIT, specializing in computation theory and its interface with game theory, economics, and machine learning. Kimon Drakopoulos, an associate professor at USC Marshall School of Business, will bring his expertise in complex networked systems and information economics to the committee.
Vangelis Karkaletsis, the Director of the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications of the NCSR “Demokritos,” will contribute his knowledge in knowledge representation and information extraction. Vasso Kinti, a professor of philosophy of science, will provide insights on the ethical implications of AI.
Other members include George Pagoulatos, Ambassador of Greece to the OECD, who specializes in European politics and economics, and Fereniki Panagopoulou, an assistant professor of constitutional law and data protection law.
The committee’s recommendations will play a crucial role in formulating a national strategy for IT in Greece. This strategy will focus on improving productivity, increasing innovation, strengthening infrastructure, promoting social cohesion, and creating quality jobs, all while safeguarding national digital sovereignty and enhancing the efficiency of the State.
With this advisory committee, Greece aims to position itself as a leader in the adoption and responsible use of AI technology. By harnessing the potential of AI and incorporating it into various sectors, Greece hopes to foster economic growth, drive innovation, and create a resilient and competitive society.
