Abstract: Artificial Intelligence tools and methodologies have successfully been used in a wide range of fields including medical diagnosis, stock trading, robot control, law, scientific discovery, toys and many more. Frequently, when a technique reaches mainstream use it is no longer considered Artificial Intelligence, which sometimes is described as the AI effect. One of the reasons that AI tools and applications were successfully adopted throughout the technology industry is that these tools are truly scientific, in the sense that their results are both measurable and verifiable. This success was partly due to the commitment by researchers to solid mathematical methods and rigorous scientific standards. In this technical report we summarize some of the AI applications and mathematical foundations of AI that were developed by Greek researchers and research groups, working in Greek universities and research institutions, or working abroad. Notice that this chapter cannot be considered as an exhaustive list of Greek researchers or groups developing AI applications and foundations, but only as an indicative list, that resulted from an open call for contributions published in Hellenic AI Society's members' mailing list.
