1 — Private investment very far from AI world leaders
2 — AI Adoption in organizations below average
3 — Relevance of European AI publications declining
4— Relevance of European AI patents declining
5— No clear AI Ethics common principles
6 — Low relative AI skill penetration rate*
*A country’s relative AI skill penetration rate of 2 in one specific sector means that the average penetration of AI skills in that country is two times the global average across the same set of occupations in that sector. Only Germany makes it to the top three in two categories (and in one of them the index is close to 1).
