#FranceIA is organizing the Artificial Intelligence days all over France. Accordingly, Systemx has set up an afternoon meeting on March 3rd from 2 -5 pm at Nano-INNOV (Palaiseau).


Event organized in partnership with:


Artificial Intelligence in the service of autonomous vehicles

Researchers, companies, startups and institutional stakeholders are meeting for two months at #FranceIA, to contribute to defining France’s main options in artificial intelligence. Ten major topics have been identified and attributed to ten working groups. Thus, IRT SystemX has been chosen to steer a working group on the topic of “Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles” in collaboration with the DGE (government directorate for corporate entities). Come and discover the work we have already accomplished in the field and the challenges we intend to take up, on the afternoon of March 3 2017!

Why #FranceIA?

Artificial intelligence technology offers major potential for research and development of new products and services, and innovative industries. However, it also poses many ethical, social and societal problems. In this context, the Government is mobilizing everyone in the AI community and is federating the many emerging initiatives in France, under the umbrella of a concerted national strategy for artificial intelligence.
