AI Sweden is the Swedish National Center for applied Artificial Intelligence, supported by the Swedish government and the public and private sectors across the country.

The center provides targeted training for partners and the general public. The Data Factory enables partners of AI Sweden to make available and access data and make use of computing power and storage capacity in AI projects.
