Skilled people and innovative businesses are at the very heart of Europe’s competitiveness.
The digital transformation of the society calls for new skills and lifelong learning.
One of the greatest forces currently driving economic development is artificial intelligence.

The Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU has decided to invest in people’s future skills and will make the Elements of AI online course freely available in all official EU languages.

Our ambitious goal is to educate 1 % of European citizens by 2021. We will start launching new languages during the spring of 2020. "Elements of AI: Introduction to AI" course is available (since the launch in May 2018) in English followed by launches in 2019 for Sweden, Estonia, Germany and Norway. During 2020, we worked together with local partners to launch the course for Latvia, Lithuania, France, Belgium, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Malta and Italy (see list of partners below).

The language translation has been provided by the European Commission, more specifically by the Directorate-General for Translation in collaboration with the Directorate‑General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology. Finland held the Presidency of the Council of the European Union from 1 July to 31 December 2019.
