A French unique community to design and industrialise trustworthy AI-based critical systems.

A national strategy at the service of French engineering is the technological pillar of the Grand Défi “Securing, certifying and enhancing the reliability of systems based on artificial intelligence” launched by the Innovation Council. It is the largest technological research programme in the #AIforHumanity plan, which is designed to make France one of the leading countries in artificial intelligence (AI).

Tackling the challenge of AI industrialisation

The very large-scale deployment of industrial systems integrating AI is a crucial stake for industrial and economic competitiveness and national sovereignty. The programme therefore has a strong ambition: breaking down the barriers associated with the industrialisation of AI and equipping French industrial players with methods adapted to their engineering and built on independent technological bases. The originality of the programme lies in its integrative strategy: it addresses the scientific challenges related to trustworthy AI and provides tangible solutions that can be applied in the real world and are ready for deployment in operations

Federating the driving forces

The programme brings together a group of major French academic and industrial players in the fields of defence, transport, manufacturing industry and energy who have decided to pool their cutting-edge scientific and technological know-how. The programme relies on strong engineering know-how and mathematical culture combined with excellence in artificial intelligence to build a sturdy trust in critical systems. In this, it is the symbol of the French cultural approach to the validation of artificial intelligence.
