Mission

Artificial intelligence will ultimately create highly autonomous systems which are already changing the way we work, interact and ultimately live. BCA’s mission is to ensurethat AI will benefit the whole society, not just a select fewWe will work towards building open technology platforms to support distributed artificial intelligence marketplaces.
We will empower innovators, data scientists, and developers collaborating to build and trade value, while creating safe, robust, and beneficial AI aligned with societal goals. BCA, is established as a Swiss non-profit association and pursues the following non-commercial goals.

Goals

Increasing knowledge and understanding of the distributed artificial intelligence systems development across governments, universities, startups, SMEs, and industry
Develop an open platform technology and infrastructure for a distributed artificial intelligence marketplace.
Promoting research into decentralized and distributed artificial intelligence from cloud to edge devices.
Foster the adoption of trustworthy AI within industry.

Our Activities

Build
  • Build and promote a decentralized, multi-party AI ecosystem in Europe reducing fragmentation across researchers, start-ups, SMEs, and industry with the capacity to set the course of AI for the benefit of society
  • Create an AI Communitywith national and European AI strategist and policy makers
  • Prepare joint proposal for new EC funding programs and facilitate consortium building
Disseminate
  • Monitor and disseminate relevat national and European level AI funding opportunities to encourage industrial competitiveness especially of non-tech sectors
  • Implement joint dissemination activities for funded European projects
  • Foster European investments in AI through use-case experiments of innovators and integrators
Enable
  • Enable innovative ICT-based companies and technologies to adopt trustworthy AI while reaching investment maturity and market introduction readiness using AI based business models
