EU science advisers back call for a 'CERN for AI' to aid research

🧀

EU science advisers recommend establishing a 'CERN for AI' named EDIRAS to boost academic AI research. The proposal aims to provide extensive computational power, cloud infrastructure, quality data, talent, and training. However, there are concerns regarding its narrow focus, distributed nature, and lack of a definitive budget.

  • Science advisors propose a 'CERN for AI' to aid European research.
  • The proposed institute, EDIRAS, would be distributed across Europe.
  • Critics worry the focus is too limited and lacks concrete budgeting.
  • EDIRAS aims to give academics more computing power and data.
  • EU innovation could benefit from AI tools for scientists.
