In this talk I will give an overview of our plans for the new Pioneer Centre for Artificial Intelligence in Denmark, along with a brief look at the research trajectory in Computer Vision and Machine Learning that brought me from the US to Europe. In addition to an overview of the centre organization, covering both research thrusts and areas of societal impact, I will provide a glimpse into the grand challenge problems the centre researchers will pursue during the next decade and beyond.
