 Protocol 72 of the regular meeting of the Council of Ministers of 16 December 2020 adopted the Concept for the Development of Artificial Intelligence in Bulgaria until 2030.

The document proposes a comprehensive vision for the development and use of artificial intelligence in Bulgaria. It is based on the strategic and programme documents of the European Commission, which consider artificial intelligence as one of the main drivers of digital transformation in Europe.

The main goal of the concept is to unite the efforts on the development and implementation of artificial intelligence systems by creating scientific, expert, business and managerial capacity. It is envisaged to provide a modern communication and scientific infrastructure for the development of new generation digital technologies. The education and lifelong learning system will be improved. The development of research and innovation in key sectors will be supported, and work will be done to put in place an ethical legal and regulatory framework that enjoys public trust.
