AI in Action
Sitra is a future fund that collaborates with partners from different sectors to research, trial and implement bold new ideas that shape the future. Our aim is a Finland that succeeds as a pioneer in sustainable well- being. Sitra’s IHAN® project aims to build the foundation for a fair and functioning data economy. The main objectives are to create a method for data exchange and to set up European level rules and guidelines for ethical use of data. Data is the fuel for AI and it needs to be collected with fair terms. Join the pioneers of the fair data economy!
The Elements of AI course is a free online course offered by the University of Helsinki and Reaktor. It is aimed at students and professionals in their own field of work. The purpose is to provide ways to understand how artificial intelligence will affect our future life.
The University of Helsinki Legal Tech Lab is a research hub that examines law, technology and society. The Lab’s objective is three-fold: to define what legal digitalisation in its various forms truly means, to develop best practices for sustainable digitalisation and to experiment with new technological tools. Since its creation in 2016, the Lab’s work has strongly emphasised the need to make law more accessible to everyone, and to establish a network for debates on legal tech. We provide a neutral forum for dialogue between all different stakeholders from lawyers and programmers to academics and policymakers. For more information, check out: www.legaltechlab.fi.
The Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT) has its strategy is to drive sustainable growth and tackle the biggest global challenges of our time and turn them into growth opportunities. It goes beyond the obvious to help the society and companies to grow through technological innovations. VTT has over 75 years of experience of top-level research and science-based results.
One of the city’s new networks is the Artificial Intelligence Programme, led by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. One of the programme’s key goals is the promotion of responsible AI, and it has launched an ethics challenge to further this aim.
Espoo is also involved in the Ethics Certification Program for Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (ECPAIS) launched by the world’s largest technical professional organization IEEE. Espoo is one of the project’s founding members. The project aims to establish internationally recognised processes and certificates for the ethical use of artificial intelligence. The first certificates are expected to see daylight in 2019.
Helsinki strives for being the most functioning city in the world. To achieve this goal we need to make the best use of digital technologies. Helsinki is increasing skills for utilizing AI by experimentation and training. City is collaborating with other cities to define ethics for using AI. Helsinki will share experiences on using text mining for creating better understanding of the citizens’ service feedback, opinions and ideas.

Valohai is deep learning management platform with automate deep learning infrastructure, version control and pipeline coordination. Valohai is the go-to solution when machine learning products require 100% audit trail. In order to build fair intelligent solutions the development work needs to be transparent and that's what Valohai offers: transparency. The platform automatically stores machine learning specific aspects like training data, code, and ready model. This makes data scientists work efficient since they can concentrate on the actual model building instead of manually keeping track of their work.
Valohai offers virtually unlimited computing power, with a push of a button, and allows data scientist to run multiple trainings on parallel.
ANOPPI-project (Finnish Ministry of Justice)
The project Anoppi produces tools for (semi)automatic anonymization/pseudonymization and content description of documents that contain personal data, e.g. court decisions. The tools are developed by using the methods of language technology and machine learning.
In the project, the tools ANOPPI (anonymization tool) and APPI (software for content description) are implemented in Finnish judiciary, in order to intensify anonymization/pseudonymization of court decisions, and to enhance accessibility to case law. Results of the project are based on open source code and are, therefore, widely applicable.
The wider accessibility of court decisions improves transparency of our legal system and increases citizens’ legal protection. Availability of those documents, especially as an open data, is important to jurisdiction research, too.
The project Anoppi is coordinated by the Ministry of Justice and is carried out in cooperation with Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities (HELDIG), Aalto University and Edita Publishing Ltd. The project is funded by the Ministry of Finance’s special funding for projects that aim to increase productivity by means of robotics, analytics and artificial intelligence.
Microsoft is the productivity and platform company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world. Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to do more and achieve more. Since the company was founded in 1975, we have worked to achieve this mission by creating technology that transforms the way people work, play, and communicate. We develop and market software, services, hardware, and solutions that deliver new opportunities, greater productivity, and enhanced value to people’s lives. Microsoft believes it will achieve its mission, in part, by infusing AI technologies into its products and services, amplifying human ingenuity with intelligent technology. More than any other technology that has preceded it, AI has the potential to extend human capabilities, empowering us all to achieve more. We do business throughout the world and have offices in more than 100 countries.
Microsoft Cognitive Services is a collection of Representational State Transfer (RESTful) intelligent application program interfaces (APIs) that allow systems to see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret people’s needs by using natural methods of communication. Developers can use these APIs to make their applications more intelligent, engaging, and discoverable. With Cognitive Services, developers can easily add intelligent features—such as emotion and sentiment detection, vision and speech recognition, knowledge, search, and language understanding—into their applications. The collection of APIs will continuously expand, adding new APIs and improving existing ones.
