A workshop that aims to offer leading AI researchers affiliated with Imperial College London, DATAIA and INRIA a platform to present their latest research on AI and Machine Learning.

Against the backdrop of new AI initiatives from the European Commission, UK, and French Governments, the programme, held in partnership with the French Embassy in the UK, is designed as a platform to share scientific views on emerging techniques and applications of AI/Machine Learning, and to develop Franco-British academic collaboration in related fields.

DATAIA is the French Government sponsored cluster of 14 institutions working on AI (Paris-Saclay University, Inria, CEA, CentraleSupélec, CNRS, Ecole polytechnique, ENSAE, HEC, IFP-EN, IMT, INRA, Evry-Val d’Essonne, University Paris-Sud, Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University).

INRIA is the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation.
