The shortage of AI specialists is an issue faced by almost all developed countries. The demand for AI specialists often exceeds the actual number of AI graduates coming out of university every year. In this context, public and private actors are engaged in a fierce battle to recruit the top experts.
Another crucial issue is enabling the general public to understand the basics of AI, as interaction with AI
applications is increasingly becoming part of our lives and has a growing impact on them.

This session will discuss and compare the different strategies envisioned or implemented in Japan, France and Germany to cope with this challenge.

What advantages could Japan, France and Germany derive from working together (i.e. scientists, companies, political decision-makers, etc.) on this topic? Why? How can we improve co-operation and what are the current brakes and deadlocks?
