“The CLAIRE vision –based on excellence and human-centred research and innovation– provides a blueprint to steer AI as a transformative force for the benefit of all.”
Ricardo Chavarriaga, Head of CLAIRE | Zurich
Our Swiss CLAIRE office was initially founded in 2020. Given the strength of its academic and industrial ecosystem, its economic landscape and tradition on the protection of human rights, Switzerland plays an essential role in the advancement of human-centred AI.
We are focusing on empowering the Swiss AI community by connecting European partners and fostering the development of ethical humane, trustworthy AI-powered solutions that are compatible with the social and economic interests of all humans.
For this purpose, the CLAIRE office Switzerland is establishing an active network comprising academia, industry, public entities and international organisations. We actively engage with media and general public through outreach and participatory activities that inform society at large about the state-of-the-art in AI and provide spaces to discuss the effects of these technologies. CLAIRE Switzerland was supported and hosted by ZHAW digital, Zurich University of Applied Sciences Winterthur from 2020–2022.

Development of talent and knowledge transfer are key elements of the CLAIRE vision. We have established a collaboration with the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (NVIDIA DLI) in 2022 to provide access to trainings in Artificial Intelligence. Through this collaboration we contribute to empowering society to benefit of the potential of Artificial Intelligence.
These courses, developed by NVIDIA, provide theoretical instruction and hands-on exercises on GPU-accelerated computing power in the cloud provided by the organizers. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive an NVIDIA DLI certificate to recognise their subject matter competency and support professional career growth.
Stay tuned for our upcoming trainings in summer and fall of 2023!
