The Netherlands seems to be missing the international revolution in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI startups although growth in the Netherlands, but compared to other countries, this growth is not fast enough. This is evident from data research StartupDelta. For the director of StartupDelta, Nils Beers, the figures show that it is time for a national AI strategy. “If we do not invest more quickly, we miss the boat.”
From the data analysis of StartupDelta shows that investments in the Netherlands in 2018 a total of 102 million euros in Artifical Intelligence startups. The Netherlands lags behind other European countries such as the United Kingdom (1.2 billion euros), France (348 million) and Germany (243 million).
