A total of 23 proposals from start-up businesses in Cyprus, Israel, Greece, and the United Kingdom are participating in the Alpha Stage of the Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit.

Following the completion of the initial evaluation by the review committee of the 23 applications in DAAS-AI, Kyriakos Kokkinos, the head of the organizing committee of the Digital Agenda Alpha Stage Artificial Intelligence competitions (DAAS-AΙ), stated, "We are particularly satisfied with both the number of entries and the quality of the proposals. I am pleased to announce that in the final presentation stage, five proposals from three different countries will be invited: Israel (2), Cyprus (2), and the UK.

The proposal selected as the best will be awarded a prize of €10,000.
