Chipmakers Expand R&D Amid France's New AI Push

LONDON , Apr. 04, 2018 – 

French President Emmanuel Macron last week launched a bold new AI strategy, backed by up to €1.5 billion (about $1.84 billion) government funding over the next five years.  Key players like Fujitsu, Samsung and DeepMind also announced they are establishing increased AI research in the country.

The strategy states data is a key competitive advantage in the global AI race, and it is therefore essential to have a data and AI policy if France and the European Union wish to attain the goals of sovereignty and strategic autonomy. It says this is especially significant to counter the dominance of digital giants in China, Russia and the United States, which have built up their positions by focusing on data collection and use and have a considerable head start.
