Sophia Antipolis presents The International Summit of Artificial Intelligence

Europe’s first science and technology park and digital cradle, Sophia Antipolis, will host, from Nov. 7th to 9th, 2018, the top Artificial Intelligence specialists for a summit dedicated to researchers, businesses, economical partners, students and the general public.

Comprising key players like INRIA alongside an exceptional ecosystem composed of historical digital players, Sophia Antipolis is a world-renowned location for AI development. Sophia Antipolis is the rightful place to organize this event in the context of the French Pre- sident announcement and the Villani report defining AI as a key issue for the future.

Scientific conferences, debates, round tables, poster sessions and digital shows will bring together the academic and business world with unique perspectives on various current topics, such as A.I. and cognition, A.I. and health, A.I. and the living, A.I. and the vision, A.I. and the economy, transport, education, Art and creativity, digital humanities and more. These topics go far beyond the traditional frameworks of disciplinary scientific research and therefore require an open and transdisciplinary approach.

Over fifty experts will join to share and compare their different approaches and experiences. They come from companies at the forefront of IA and prestigious institutions, among them: Facebook, Orange, SAP, IBM, Accenture, INRIA, the Academy of Sciences, the College of France, University of Jerusalem, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Johns Hopkins University and many others.

Two public conferences will address, in a more interactive way, the questions and concerns of citizens regarding the impact of artificial intelligence on their daily lives on the one hand (work world, security, individual freedom), and on ethical issues raised by AI true potential and its impacts into our daily lives on the other hand.

This summit will be the culmination of other events that, throughout 2018, have solicited or questioned Artificial Intelligence and the numerous applications of AI.

The summit is jointly organized by Sophia Antipolis Urban Community and Université Côte d’Azur, and in connection with all the stakeholders involved: Telecom Valley, SCS Cluster, Sophia Club Entreprises, FrenchTech Côte d’Azur. An entire ecosystem focuses on this subject and intends to assert its ideas for a global transdisciplinary approach.

The summit will take place in the Science and Technology park (Sophia Tech Campus, SKEMA, Amadeus, Espaces Antipolis, INRIA) hosting conferences during the day and at the Palais des Congrès in Antibes Juan-les-Pins for the two public conferences in the evening.
