AI is expected to contribute $13-16 trillion to global GDP.   For Czechia to play a significant role in the new economy, we need innovative companies and startups that develop products and services reaching far beyond our country’s borders. What’s more, we need well-established companies successfully implementing innovation in real-life use cases.
Do you want to make good use of systems that optimise and automate tedious tasks, increase productivity, or help inform your executive decision-making? Are you looking for tools addressing various needs or are you interested in cooperation with the academic sector? We have compiled a database of Prague companies and research groups.
Successful implementation of innovation is possible only with ongoing education and constant motivation of your employees. To that end, we launched the Czech version of the free online course Elements of AI and created our own content platform, Journal. We also produce popsci video series in collaboration with the Red Button EDU initiative.
Nourishing the ecosystem
Alongside the founding institutions, private companies comprise the membership base of prg.ai. They acknowledge the importance of an educated, smart, and well-funded community that shares the common vision of transforming Prague into a European AI hub.
They all offer advanced AI products and services, employ highly skilled professionals, and closely collaborate with academia. Knowing these functions are essential to be able to prepare our society and its economy for the world of tomorrow, these companies play an integral role in prg.ai.
One of our goals is to enable the growth of our members. We connect them with potential clients, perspective employees, or top tier experts from different fields. We explore interesting projects for them to participate in locally and internationally. We seek synergies among our members, offering a platform to share information, knowledge, and experience.
