In August 2019, the Ministry of Digitisation has published a draft of its national AI strategy, entitled Artificial Intelligence Development Policy in Poland for 2019-2027 (Poland, 2019). The policy draft has been released for public consultation, with the aim of gathering feedback and recommendations from relevant stakeholders. The public consultation lasted until September 9th. The collected feedback will be used to revise the actual draft. The current progress and milestones in developing the national AI strategy can be followed on a roadmap released by the Ministry of Digitisation. A Committee of the Council of Ministers for Digitalisation has been appointed to coordinate the implementation of the national AI strategy of Poland.
The objective of Poland’s strategy is to encourage the growth and innovation of the knowledge-based economy by supporting AI science and research developments and to prepare citizens for the digital transformation by improving their competences.
