One of the most important ones is Artificial Intelligence – everyone expects that it will change the world, but also to drive new economic progress for the countries that want and invest into it. European Union is making sure that we are not behind and there are numerous initiatives and investments into the Artificial Intelligence. What about Croatia? What is Croatia doing to make sure that we are in the same boat as the rest of the European Union? What do we need to do to prepare and what activities are we already implementing?
