EU: EIT publishes AI maturity tool
The European Institute of Innovation & Technology ('EIT') published, on 20 January 2022, an artificial intelligence maturity tool ('the AI Tool'), which is part of an initiative on AI, in which several Knowledge and Innovation communities of the EIT are involved. In particular, the EIT noted that with the AI Tool organisations can assess by themselves how prepared they are for the use of AI. In addition, the EIT stated that the web-based AI Tool by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. creates a result graph based on the information the organisation enters into a questionnaire and gives it a visualisation of the organisation's AI maturity. Furthermore, the EIT clarified that the graph highlights the AI maturity in six dimensions, which can be used to recognise the most important, required, or urgent development targets. Moreover, the EIT highlighted that the AI Tool will allow the organisation to compare its AI maturity level with respect to other organisations, once the number of participants has grown, and the AI Tool also guarantees the anonymity of entered data. Lastly, the EIT stated that the AI Tool is available in Castilian, English, Finnish, French, German, Spanish, Polish, and Italian.
