Specifically, in the year 2006, only 135 publications were recorded, which gave way to 444 publications in 2020, which is also the maximum performance of the reference period on which this research was focused.

In particular, publications from 1,175 in the five-year period 2006-2010 (annual average 235 publications), increase to 1,411 in the five-year period 2011-2015 (annual average 282) and to 1,839 in the five-year period 2016-2020 (annual average 368).

The above data are derived from the statistics and indicators of the new edition of the ECB “Identification and analysis of Greek scientific publications in the field of Artificial Intelligence with Machine Learning techniques“, which presents the number of Greek scientific publications in the field of Artificial Intelligence for the period 2006-2020, the impact indicators, the main organizations active in the field and the international collaboration networks developed by Greek researchers.

Regarding the organizations that produce these publications, the universities of Patras, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and National Technical University of Athens occupy the first three positions.

The Technology and Research Foundation is in fourth place. The rest of the rankings are occupied by the University of Piraeus, the Democritus University of Thrace, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Technical University of Crete.

In terms of cooperation and networking, in total, the countries with which the Greek institutions cooperate in the scientific publications related to Artificial Intelligence for the period 2006-2020, amount to 71.

Using the geographical addresses (affiliations) of the authors, it is recorded that Great Britain, the USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Belgium are the countries with which they are mainly connected research scientists of Greek bodies and institutions.

As noted by the Director of the ECB, Dr. Evi Sahini, “the ECB, for the first time, collected and processed, with machine learning techniques, the data from all international bibliometric bases and identified the scientific publications of Greek institutions in the dynamically developing field of Artificial Intelligence».
