AI Strategy

Slovakia is one of the Member States that includes its AI-related policies as part of a broader digitalisation strategy. In October 2019, the Slovakian government published an English version of the Action plan for the digital transformation of Slovakia for 2019-2022 (Slovakia, 2019a). The action plan offers a set of concrete steps on how to start building a sustainable and human centric, and trustworthy AI ecosystem. The action plan is based on a wider Strategy of the Digital Transformation of Slovakia 2030 (Slovakia, 2019b), setting out the long-term perspective of Slovakia for a successful digital transformation of the economy and society. While the strategy report provides a broader picture, the action plan is more detailed and includes concrete policy measures for the years 2019-2022.

The Slovakian Action Plan sets out a list of policy initiatives with a short-term time horizon that covers the following strategic areas:

  • Supporting digital transformation of schools and education to prepare for digital skills needed in the digital era;
  • Strengthening the basis for a digital and data economy;
  • Improving abilities of the public administration to innovate and use the data for the benefit of citizens;
  • Supporting the development of an AI ecosystem.

The Slovakian strategy does not disclose financial provisions or estimations for its implementation.
