Artificial Intelligence for good

on the June 8, 2021

Digital event
Welcome to the « Artificial Intelligence for Good » digital event. Le Pays de Galles et la région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes sont des viviers d’entreprises qui excellent dans le domaine des technologies numériques. L'objectif de cet événement 100% digital est de croiser ces deux écosystèmes autour de la thématique de l’Intelligence Artificielle et ses applications. Découvrez les collaborations déjà existantes entre les universités de Swansea et de Grenoble, découvrez les opportunités de financement pour vos futures collaborations et initiez des liens avec les acteurs de l'industrie et de la recherche lors de la session de rdv B2B de l'après-midi.

Both Wales and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region are homes to world-renowned expertise in digital technologies.

At the crux between the semiconductor industry, with chips becoming more and more powerful, and the software industry, with the production of colossal amounts of data, artificial intelligence, where machines “think” for themselves is becoming more and more prevalent. The applications of AI are countless but while we may sometimes think of AI as nefarious, with machines taking away jobs and autonomy, AI can and is being used for good, to improve our health and wellbeing and supporting sustainability.

The objective of this event is to introduce our two ecosystems to each other and establish working-level connections by uniting them around the theme of artificial intelligence and its applications.

By promoting on going collaborations from the Universities of Swansea and Grenoble and presenting financing opportunities for collaboration, the goal is to inspire participants to initiate connections between actors from industry and from research during the B2B networking session in the afternoon.

Companies, researchers and organisations working in AI that would be interested in collaborative projects.
