Artificial Intelligence Advisory Team for Poland

The Minister of Digitization has appointed an advisory team on artificial intelligence.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digitization Krzysztof Gawkowski has established a PL/AI Artificial Intelligence Advisory Team for Poland, which will develop recommendations for using AI to improve specific areas of state operations, the Ministry of Digitization said in a press release.

The statement indicated that the use of AI can help increase efficiency and optimize processes in public administration. AI, it added, is also a huge opportunity for economic advancement and a leap forward for Poland, especially since Poland has a large number of female entrepreneurs, scientists and computer scientists who play a key role in the global AI revolution.

“Today we are initiating a very important project, a group of experts with proven global successes in AI development have pledged their support. This group is, of course, open and we want more participants to join it. I believe that together we can ensure that AI will be used to significantly improve the functioning of administrative activities that are important to citizens, and consequently improve the lives of Poles,” said Gawkowski.

The team and the involvement of experts in supporting the administration is part of the Poland Top10 strategy. The group’s initiators have identified 10 areas in which artificial intelligence has the potential to improve the state’s operations – these are issues in the fields of security, education, public health, effective state and development, where AI can allow for increased efficiency, elimination of barriers or better planning. The team will prepare recommendations and share the knowledge of artificial intelligence practitioners with government administrations.

Experts expect results in three fields. First: speeding up analytical work, where AI, by analyzing a range of data faster than humans, can speed up service to citizens, such as issuing simple formal decisions.

Second: cleaning up inconsistent regulations. AI is able to find inaccuracies in documents, point out what needs to be clarified and made more consistent.

Third: strategic planning in state management. AI makes it possible to quickly draw conclusions from demographics, the health system, global trends, etc., to make theses about what the state needs to prepare for in a five, 10 or 20-year perspective.

The originator of PL/AI is Miron Mironiuk (founder of Cosmose AI). Also joining the team are: Agnieszka Mikołajczyk-Bareła,(senior AI engineer at Chaptr), Kamila Staryga (co-founder of Rita Health), Marek Cygan (co-founder of Nomagic), Tomasz Czajka (worked for Google and SpaceX, among others), Łukasz Kidziński (founder of Saliency AI) and Karol Kurach (worked at Google and Cosmose AI, among others). The team of scientists, entrepreneurs and developers, will permanently advise the Ministry of Digitization.

“I believe our unique selling point is that we focus on what brings us together. Poland Weekly offers something you will not find anywhere else: a truly international and unifying perspective focused on content that builds cooperation and mutual understanding. This attitude doesn't make us naïve, but it allows us to focus on mutual understanding and a search for solutions. There are so many new challenges that we are all facing, such as energy transformation, climate change and supply chain disruption, to name but a few. By working together and sharing good practices, we can achieve so much more.”
