France is leading in Europe in the field of AI and is looking for international cooperation. On 29 March 2018, President Macron set out his plan to invest €1.5 billion in AI over the next five years, with which he wants France to be among the world leaders in the field of AI Research & Development and innovation.
Participation in the virtual AI mission France has three main objectives:
- To position Dutch companies and knowledge institutions as innovative solution providers in the field of AI in collaboration with the Dutch AI Coalition.
- To build a relevant network to scale up AI solutions, promote commerce and explore opportunities for Research & Development collaboration;
- Exploring the European, and specifically the French market, with related French and European developments in the field of AI.
