Telenor Hungary is founding member of Artificial Intelligence Coalition

Telenor Hungary has also signed the Founding Declaration of the Artificial Intelligence Coalition initiated by the Ministry of Innovation and Technology to join forces with other industry players in promoting MI-based application development. The research, development and practical application of artificial intelligence are innovative technology fields heavily contributing to economic growth. The AI Coalition aims to provide a permanent forum for cooperation between AI developers and AI users and contribute to the development of Hungary’s AI strategy.

At the formal signing event of the AI Coalition’s Founding Declaration on 9 October 2018, Telenor Hungary was represented by György Koller, Chief Technical Officer of Telenor Hungary and Gábor Kőrösi, Director of Public and Regulatory Affairs at Telenor Hungary.

After the signing event, György Koller said: “We welcome the Hungarian AI Coalition initiative aiming to promote public-private partnership for industry-level AI development. We also see a great potential in the development and deployment of AI technology that can boost the growth of the country, its businesses and enable us to provide an outstanding customer experience. New AI technologies help us better understand customer needs and offer customized and optimized solutions in network and product development.

We at Telenor are currently evaluating the opportunities provided by AI-based technologies and their potential contribution to our strategic goals and customer experience. We’ve also taken some important steps on this journey through the use of BI (business intelligence) and Big Data solutions. We believe that if we process customer data in an appropriate way – with maximum privacy and GDPR compliance – we can better optimize our network and create high-quality personalized offers. This way, our customers can make the most of the internet, work and study faster and more efficiently and be more successful. As a result, the development of business intelligence and artificial intelligence technologies can make a valuable contribution to Hungary’s economic growth, a key ambition also for the AI Coalition.”
