Platform for collaboration
Tampere AI ecosystem is operated by Business Tampere in collaboration with Tampere University and the City of Tampere. Our shared goal is to promote Tampere region as an internationally attractive Center of Excellence for artificial intelligence, raise awareness in AI, and support both organizational renewal and business growth driven by AI.
The history of the Tampere AI ecosystem
Business Tampere strongly supported the start of AI Hub Tampere in 2018. With this, a need was seen for an artificial intelligence ecosystem that would bring together artificial intelligence expertise and the activities centered around it in the Tampere region as part of Business Tampere’s business and innovation ecosystems.
In the fall of 2019, a survey was made of the region’s AI actors and their skills. At the end of the year 2019, together with the actors in the region, we planned what the AI ecosystem in Tampere should be like. Based on this, a roadmap for the development of the ecosystem has been drawn up. In the spring of 2020, all of this was gathered on the Tampere.ai website. Minna Kinnunen is the founder of the Tampere AI ecosystem.
