AI Strategy

In October 2019, the Maltese government published Malta’s national AI strategy (Malta, 2019a). The objective for Malta is to gain a strategic competitive advantage in the global economy in the field of AI. To achieve this objective, the policy report presents three pillars to lay the foundations for Malta’s AI strategy:

  • The creation of a solid AI ecosystem based on investments, start-up support and innovation;
  • Support for increased adoption of AI in the public sector;
  • Support measures for the adoption of AI in the private sector.

The successful achievement of these objectives relies on three horizontal enablers that cut across the three aforementioned areas: education and workforce, legal and ethical framework and infrastructure. The national AI strategy of Malta has been based on Malta’s AI workforce high-level policy document that was released in March 2019 for public consultation (Malta, 2019b).

Malta’s government has launched a dedicated web portal to outline and present the progress made in implementing the national strategy in AI.

The Maltese AI strategy does not disclose financial provisions or estimations for its overall implementation.
