In the framework of the French government initiative « AI for Humanity », a manifesto for AI at the service of industries has been signed. Its objective is to coordinate an action plan with the French eco-system to define the challenges related to the development of AI and to prioritize research topics.
The DATAIA Institute promotes an Industry Affiliation Plan, a partnership aimed to enrich the development of academic research on AI as well as giving companies advantages.
