Hungary Joins EU Initiative On Artificial Intelligence
Hungary joined the European Union’s initiative on artificial intelligence at an event marking Digital Day 2018 in Brussels on Tuesday.

József Pálinkás, head of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office (NKFIH), signed the document under which member states will coordinate their efforts to do research in, make use of, and draft legal regulations pertaining to artificial intelligence, the office said.

The Visegrad Group member countries published a separate statement showing that they would jointly encourage developments in the field.

The NKFIH announced in January 2018 that it would allocate 1 billion forints (EUR 3.2m) to supporting research linked to artificial intelligence (AI).
