Knowledge 4 All Foundation Ltd (K4A) is a non-profit organization based in London (UK), formed as a successor to the PASCAL2 Network of Excellence, an FP7 research project and the main supporter of VideoLectures.Net. Among the over 60 members of the Foundation are some of the most important research and development centres in the field of artificial intelligence in Europe.
