CLAIRE is an initiative by the European AI community that seeks to strengthen European excellence in AI research and innovation. To achieve this, CLAIRE proposes the establishment of a pan-European Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe that achieves "brand recognition" similar to CERN. We believe that artificial intelligence (AI) will fundamentally change the way we live and work. It is also likely to become crucial in addressing society's grand challenges. In addition, AI is a global "game changer" that has become a major driver of innovation, future growth and competitiveness.
Generally, as any start-up matures, the people working in it go through a professionalization process. Silicon Valley may be home to companies where jeans and flip-flops are the norm, but Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates are examples of how managing rapid growth and taking a company public leads to greater levels of financial and organizational maturity, as well as hierarchy that echoes the structure of traditional businesses. This is logical – it's one thing to be operating out of your garage when you're still trying to find investors for your disruptive idea; it's another thing entirely once your company is worth millions, if not billions of dollars. Achieving a level of operational excellence allows startups to scale. Yet, this evolutionary process is not universal.

Not that it's likely to deter others. More than a few former associates come out of the woodwork to challenge Claire, including former Chief of Staff Doug Stamper. The season arrives November 2nd.
