Samsung To Establish Massive AI Research Facility In France

SC - 30-mars-2018 06:50:42
The centre is to be Samsung’s third biggest after those in South Korea and the US, with more than 100 researchers Samsung and Fujitsu are to establish substantial research centres for artificial intelligence (AI) in France, the companies announced ahead of the launch of a government AI initiative set for Thursday . Samsung’s French AI base is to be its largest after those in South Korea and the US, the company said. The announcement followed a meeting between French president Emmanuel Macron and Samsung strategy chief Young Sohn in Paris. “Great progress on artificial intelligence is happening in France,” Macron said in an English-language Twitter message . “Samsung chooses France to locate its new research center on artificial intelligence, creating more than 100 jobs. Thank you Young Sohn for taking the leap.” AI expansion The Samsung centre currently employs a team of 15 people in the Paris area. It plans to expand that to 50 scientists by the end of 2018, and eventually to more than 100 experts, according to local media reports. The larger facility is to be based either in Paris or in Saclay, in the capital’s south-west outskirts. Japan’s Fujitsu also said it would expand a team of 15 AI experts that is currently based in the elite Polytechnique engineering academy near Paris. “The group, after a review that lasted more than a year, found that France stood out from the crowd in the field of artificial intelligence,” said Fujitsu France managing director Benjamin Revcolevschi, according to Reuters. Macron’s Thursday announcement is expected to include a state investment designed to build on France’s position in AI, which is in turn based on the country’s strengths in mathematics. France and the UK are competing to attract talent and start-up investment capital in areas including AI and  financial technology  as Britain prepares to depart from the European Union.   Source : Silicon.co online media,   https://www.silicon.co.uk/software/samsung-ai-research-france-230787   

The “French Tech Tour to India 2017”, a platform to bridging the French and Indian Tech ecosystems

Purva Marwaha - 30-oct.-2017 10:57:25
Business France, the Trade & Investment Commission of France in India, is organizing, with several stakeholders and partners, the second edition of the “French Tech Tour to India”, a multi-purpose and multi-format platform to run over Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Hyderabad & Bangalore from the 13 th  to the 17 th  of November 2017.   The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will consist in an immersive mission to India for 9 innovative “French Tech” startups and SMEs and 1 of France and the World biggest car makers . The program for these companies will include customize business meetings with Indian start-ups, investors, partners and clients as well as pitch sessions and curated networking cocktails across the 4 cities. The first edition of the event in 2016 pitch sessions and networking and networking event was a tremendous success and recorded a footfall of more than 150 participants in each city.   France is eager to develop strong partnerships with the Indian start-ups ecosystems.  Therefore, the “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will also include meetings with several incubators in the 4 cities, and more specifically  T-Hub in Hyderabad , Indian leading start-ups incubator, and one the biggest in the World. The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will finally have a strong participation  at the Bangalore ITE.Biz 2017  (Bangalore, 16th to 18 th  of November 2017), with the objective of strengthening reciprocal awareness between the French and Indian Tech ecosystems, and of promoting France as a leading Innovation and Business Hub in Europe for Indian Tech Companies. In the years to come, Business France looks forward to take these initiatives to greater scale.  The French Tech initiative fits in the with the goals and objectives of the “Startup India” and “Digital India” initiatives  by the Government of India. We hope that this spirit of reciprocal learning and collaboration between India and France strengthens in the following years.     *     *     *     *     * For some years now, the French Tech ecosystem has enjoyed a steady and strong development, driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers and other talented people. Like India, France has emerged as a leading Startup Power, home to vibrant Tech Hubs and talents, and imbued with a strong entrepreneurial culture. With 100,000 Engineers trained yearly, 6,000+ Tech startups, 200+ Tech startup incubators / accelerators, 100+ VC funds active, more and more large companies and Mid-Caps involved into startup initiatives, not to mention our Innovation Clusters, France stands among the leading ecosystems globally when considering Tech-related Entrepreneurship and Innovation; as ascertained by the fact that France led -for the 6th consecutive year- the race in the “Deloitte Fast 500 2015 EMEA” ranking with 87 laureates. The “French Tech” is benefiting from both Software and Hardware-centric capabilities. Also, while France has been historically known for Telecommunications and Media technologies for instance, the country has nurtured a growing number of World market leaders emerging in domains such as Big Data & Analytics (with Success Stories such as Criteo, Scality, Talend or Teads…), IoT and Connected Devices (over 25% of all startups exhibiting at the CES 2016 were French), eCommerce and Sharing /On-demand Economy, or BioTech and MedTech (No. 2 in the World for BioTech and No. 1 for MedTech IPOs over 2011-2015). In addition to public supportive programs, private initiatives such as the StationF to open in early 2017 in Paris (consisting in the retrofit of the Halle Freyssinet, to make it the largest business incubator worldwide with over 1,000 startups spread over 33,000 sqm), shall contribute to sustain this dynamic. Also noteworthy is the fact that many MNCs (Cisco, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Huawei, Intel Corporation, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung…) have implemented R&D and Innovation centers in France and are increasing the scale of their operations in this domain.   The “French Tech Tour to India” finds its origin in the statement that with over 5,000 and 6,000 Tech startups respectively, and many large corporates involved in Open Innovation and Acceleration programs, India and France both belong to the Top 5 of the Tech startup ecosystems in the world. Yet, further initiatives need to be developed to exploit the true potential for synergies and value co-creation between the 2 Startup Powers. Hence, in addition This French Tech Tour to India 2017 is part of the larger  French Tech  initiative spearheaded by the French Government and associated public and private stakeholders to promote innovation and the growth of startup ecosystems in France. These initiatives look at bridging the French and India Tech ecosystems, creating reciprocal awareness between the two ecosystems and enabling participating French Tech startups and SMEs to find their future partners and clients and develop in the Indian market   About the “French Tech” initiative: Launched in 2013, the “French Tech” is an initiative spearheaded by the French Government in association with public and private stakeholders in order to nurture the densification, the growth and internationalization of Tech startup ecosystems in France, and to accrue the positioning of France as a leading European Innovation and Business Hub towards any Tech company. It consists in: -  a set of programs (grants to entrepreneurs, access of entrepreneurs to IT and research resources, fund of funds, acceleration fund, “French Tech Ticket”, etc.) designed to achieve these objectives; - networks of labeled ecosystems located throughout France; - a brand and logo, this pink rooster to which any “French Tech” entrepreneur associates itself. The "French Tech" eventually refers to all the stakeholders and individuals contributing to the Tech startup ecosystem in France or abroad. The initiative is sector-agnostic and relates not only to the Digital economy or ICTs, but also to BioTech, CleanTech, EdTech, FinTech, FoodTech, MedTech, etc. For further information, you can log on to the Website of the “French Tech” initiative:  http://bonjourlafrenchtech.com/   About Business France: Business France is the National Agency for the Internationalization of the French Economy, responsible for fostering the international expansion of French businesses as well as promoting and facilitating international investments in France. It promotes France’s companies, business image and nationwide attractiveness as an investment location, and also runs the V.I.E scheme (an international internship program).

Bangalore Startup Shoots For The Moon Propeled By Nandan Nilekani, Ratan Tata And Others

Purva Marwaha - 06-mars-2017 10:24:17
Bangalore Startup Shoots For The Moon Propeled By Nandan Nilekani, Ratan Tata And Others A team of more than 100 techies--young engineers guided by a group of retired senior scientists from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)--is building a spacecraft to soft-land a rover on the moon by the end of this year and fly the Indian flag up there on the country’s Republic Day (January 26, 2018). The spunky Bangalore startup has already secured a contract with ISRO for sending the spacecraft into orbit around the Earth aboard ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. Team?Indus, cofounded by IIT grad and serial software entrepreneur Rahul Narayan, is one of five teams around the world competing for the $20 million Google Lunar XPrize that is intended to promote entrepreneurial space exploration. The others in the fray are the U.S.’ Moon Express, Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL, Japan’s Hakuto and Synergy Moon (an international collaboration from 15 countries). The winner is required to land the craft and release the rover, which has to move 500 meters on the lunar surface and beam high-definition photos and videos back to Earth. The Indian team has already cleared one milestone, landing technology, and has netted $1 million from GLXP. GLXP’s stipulation is that 90% of the mission cost has to come from private sources. Part of the funding will come from selling taxi services: For instance, competitor Hakuto’s rover will hitch a ride on the Indian spacecraft. "The development of the spacecraft is in progress now," says fleet commander Narayan, 43. "We have all the key alliances in place. We can make this happen." The trip to the moon has big backing from these business leaders: Nandan Nilekani Software giant Infosys’ cofounder, with a net worth of $1.6 billion, is the biggest investor in TeamIndus.   Rakesh Jhunjhunwala Hailed as India’s Warren Buffett, the star investor who stays away from startups has made an exception with the lunar company. Ratan Tata Former chairman of the $103 billion (revenue) Tata conglomerate is a big backer of startups in India. Venu Srinivasan South Indian business leader chairs India’s third-largest two-wheeler maker--the $1.7 billion (fiscal 2016 revenues) TVS Motor Co. Sachin & Binny Bansal Cofounders of e-commerce marketplace Flipkart--referred to as India’s Alibaba--take a leap into space.   Source:  http://bit.ly/2lNqAv6
