AI Programme

Changed on 20/02/2023

Inria was charged by the SNIA with coordinating all activities related to training and research in the field of artificial intelligence, and in particular with the transverse animation of the 3AI institutes created in the first phase of this strategy. Through these four institutes, Inria's activity has continuously developed. In addition, in support of public policies and with the support of the Ministry of the Economy, Inria launched the Regalia pilot project aimed at detecting bias in digital platforms.
