October 25th, 2017 - PARIS
After the computerization of enterprises in the 1980s and the networking of their information systems in the 2000s, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is emerging as a decisive step in the exploitation of digital data. The current global situation of AI is based both on relevant academic basic research, on an abundance of achievements attesting to the maturity of technologies and on the enthusiasm of all the actors who work in this field: researchers, teachers, entrepreneurs, policy makers and funders.
In order to gather research and business actors in the field and affirm the collaboration between French and Japanese actors, the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) and the Embassy of France in Japan, the Embassy of Japan in Paris, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) co-organize a day of talks, meetings and debates on Wednesday October 25th 2017, in the Paris region.
