Event organized by IBM


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform our lives in depth and for the better, provided that we build a controlled and inclusive AI. This conference is positioned as a contribution to the “Etats généraux des nouvelles régulations numériques” of the French government, on topics such as bias in AI, transparency, developing AI ecosystems which create value in France and how we can prepare for jobs of the future, and the development of ecosystems that create value in France.

What are the next moves of government actors and public institutions? How can companies go beyond declarations and concretely propose a responsible AI?
