Large Dutch companies are ahead in Europe with artificial intelligence




Large Dutch companies use artificial intelligence techniques such as neural networks relatively often compared to competitors in Europe. Microsoft reports that after research.

In particular, Dutch companies make greater use of neural networks. In addition, the subject is often on the agenda and the Netherlands is one of the countries where artificial intelligence projects are already quite mature.

On behalf of Microsoft, EY interviewed 277 organizations in different sectors in Europe about their use of artificial intelligence techniques, including 22 from the Netherlands. Among the Dutch companies were Coolblue, Rabobank, Wolters Kluwer, Randstad, Royal Schiphol Group and VodafoneZiggo.

59 percent of the Dutch organizations surveyed use neural networks, compared to a European average of 39 percent. Also in the use of text analysis, speech recognition, computer vision and biometrics, Dutch companies are at the forefront.

However, this is not the case in all areas. The most used technique in Europe is for example machine learning, probably because it can be used for many applications. More than three quarters of European organizations apply this, but in the Netherlands this is somewhat less. Smart robotics and natural language processing are also less used here. Given the relatively low number of organizations questioned, the likelihood is that the sectors in which the companies operate have an influence.

According to the survey, Dutch companies also call artificial intelligence more important than European competitors. In addition, 37 percent of organizations work on AI projects that are actually taken into production or are in an advanced phase, compared to the European average of 32 percent.

According to Dutch universities, there is indeed a brain drain abroad of knowledge about artificial intelligence.
