SWITCH is a partner of the SATW initiative Swiss Artificial Intelligence Research Overview Platform (SAIROP). The data for the platform is linked via the Connectome Knowledge Graph.
As an enabling technology that is finding its way into all areas of daily life, AI is of outstanding importance for Switzerland as a research location and for future value creation. The planned platform - the Swiss Artificial Intelligence Research Overview Platform (SAIROP) - will provide an overview of current research projects and the competencies of Swiss research institutions in the field of AI. The projects thus receive better visibility, the expertise of research groups in the field of AI is presented more clearly and it creates new access for the initiation of future projects.
The partners from research funding, academia and industry will compile information from existing databases, process it and make it more accessible by means of the new platform, which is likely to be unique in Europe in terms of the planned level of detail. This is where the Connectome Knowledge Graph comes into play: the data from different sources are linked in the background and thus enable the competences of Swiss research groups to be shown on the basis of current projects via SAIROP as a central access point. SAIROP is scheduled to be launched in fall 2021 and will be publicly accessible.
