AI Artificial Intelligence
AI is one of the strategic directions of Wrocław’s development. The city wants not only to implement these solutions but also to design them. These efforts have already been noticed. The authorities of Wrocław, domestic companies and start-ups as well as branches of large international corporations focus on solutions based on artificial intelligence. They want Wrocław Metropolitan Area to become a technological hub. Lower Silesia has many features that could turn it into a “European Silicon Valley” within a few years: a great international location, perfectly educated young employees, low labour costs compared to Western Europe, research facilities and international contacts.The new technology industry is also now one of the main pillars of the city’s development. It is estimated that thirty-six thousand people work in the Wrocław IT industry today.
