Learning Machines

The Learning Machines center is led by the vision that advanced digital transformation by data-driven innovation will become the key driver of creativity, entrepreneurship, and sustainable growth in Swedish industry and society in the near future.

Learning Machines will be a major driving force for this paradigm shift. Working closely together in center form, center partners Ericsson, Husqvarna, King, KTH, Saab, Scania, SICS, Skatteverket, and Spotify will join their combined expertise, activities, and resources in a unique industry-academic center for Data Science, achieving the necessary critical mass and momentum for world-leading research and innovation.

Learning Machines will co-create next-generation Data Science technologies and application platforms at the intersection of scalable systems for high-velocity real-time streaming analytics and advanced algorithms for analytics and machine learning. All research and development will build on common technical platforms, published as open source and used by all partners. These will be used to develop application prototypes and demonstrators for high value, high impact areas such as autonomous vehicles, smart personalized services, intelligent management of connected users and devices, and automation of complex systems such as 5G networks, intelligent transportation systems, and large-scale Internet services.
