The challenge was set up by Finnish KEHA-centre, which is a nation-wide office that provides development and administration services for ELY Centres (Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment) and TE Offices (Public employment and business services) in Finland. KEHA-centre guides and serves its customer organizations for example by deploying new digital tools and developing governance and management practices and operational processes.

The Challenge is described at Industryhack webpage:

In AI Goes to Work, teams will co-develop AI-based solutions to provide Työmarkkinatori’s customers with personalised skill-building and job offering opportunities. These opportunities are formed by connecting operators in education and employment services in public, private and third sector alike. The solutions are expected to approach the challenge from the viewpoint of a private person (i.e. any individual using the platform for personal purposes), including those who are not actively searching for a job. The key for building a truly valuable, tailored offering for each user really is to look beyond their ‘obvious’ characteristics like work history and skills, and also take into account their interests, hobbies, underdeveloped skills, etc.
