Projects that are worth supporting within the scope of TÜBİTAK's Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call will be announced in Istanbul on Sunday, November 13.
The signing ceremony for the projects deemed worthy of support as a result of the "Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call" opened for the first time by the TÜBİTAK Technology and Innovation Support Programs Presidency (TEYDEB) in 2022 will be held at the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (ITO) Information Commercialization Center in Şişli. The ceremony was attended by Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank and President of TUBITAK Prof. Dr. It will be held with the participation of Hasan Mandal.
The Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call was planned to contribute to the transformation of artificial intelligence technologies developed by companies located in Turkey and committed to implementing the project results in the country, into products or solutions in line with the needs. In this support model, the parties that develop, produce and need information were brought together. Companies that need artificial intelligence solutions were defined as customer institutions.
COMMON FUNDING MECHANISM
A co-funding mechanism was also established in the form of meeting a certain percentage of the project budget by these companies. In the applications, together with the client institution, at least one company as a technology provider, at least one university research laboratory, research center or public research center experienced in this field, a research institute and TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Artificial Intelligence Institute (YZE) formed a consortium.
TURKISH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ECOSYSTEM
Within the framework of the program, it is aimed to activate the "Turkish Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem", to transfer knowledge to companies, to create a pre-competitive cooperation approach in the field of artificial intelligence and to train researcher human resources in this field. YZE will be responsible for the basic integration of the solutions developed in this context and the rapid transfer of the accumulated knowledge to the ecosystem.
FOUR PRIORITY AREAS
For this purpose, project outputs such as the catalog of generalized solutions, anonymized database of use cases, lessons learned and communication platform, reusable software libraries and method/tool suggestion system will be gathered under the body of YZE. Within the scope of the program, "Smart Production Systems", "Smart Agriculture, Food and Livestock", "Finance Technologies" and "Impacts of Climate Change" were determined as four priority areas.
22 CONSORTIUM APPLIED
A total of 22 consortiums applied to the call, which attracted great interest in a short time. 10 consortium projects were accepted after the evaluations of multiple referee committees, who are experts in their fields. 7 of them were in Smart Production Systems, 1 in Finance Technologies, 1 in Smart Agriculture, Food and Livestock and 1 in Climate Change Impacts thematic areas.
