One of the most effective things a government can do to foster an ecosystem of AI startups is to have a National Open Data Strategy.
Put all government data behind APIs, sponsor the creation of high-quality public datasets in various domains relevant to local markets & language.
New startups, open-source applications, and big co services will emerge to make use of this data. It's one of the most cost-effective way to foster innovation, and, unlike research & education (which are also critical), it has short-term returns
Datasets = infrastructure for the future.
