The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research (Kunnskapsdepartementet) and the US Department of Energy have entered into an agreement on increased collaboration on research and innovation in artificial intelligence.
“I am glad that we have put this agreement in place. The United States has very strong professional environments in artificial intelligence. We look forward to working with the best to develop methods and technologies to solve challenges in areas such as climate, energy, and health,” Minister of Research and Higher Education Ola Borten Moe (SP) stated.
He called artificial intelligence an area with enormous potential.
In addition to research and innovation, the collaboration will look at education and ethical issues related to artificial intelligence. Areas where the Ministry of Education’s cooperation can contribute to breakthroughs include carbon capture and storage, weather and climate warnings, and the development of new medicines.
