France and Germany release 17.5 million euros to finance the five winning projects of their joint APP

As part of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Directorate General for Enterprise (DGE) is organising, with the support of Hub France IA and Numeum, an event at the heart of the Global Industrie industrial fair, in Paris Villepinte: The “AI Village”, which started on May 17 and will end on May 20. Germany and France, which launched an APP on February 3, 2021 to “Boost the offer of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for risk prevention, crisis management and resilience in 3 areas of application” announced funding of 17.5 million euros for the five projects selected.

The AI ​​Village

Start-ups and large groups have the opportunity to come and present their initiatives and solutions around AI during this event which aims to put AI at the heart of the digital transformation of industry and businesses in France. and in Europe as well as to position AI technologies as levers of productivity, operational excellence and growth.

It aims to:

promote a European initiative concrete on AI;
demystify and raise awareness of AI use cases for industry and for business;
create commercial synergies between companies;
strengthening links between European AI ecosystems for the industry through meetings and exchanges between companies, professionals and academics.

During these four days, five round tables around the technological challenges of AI for industry, strategies to adopt, on trusted AI, its adoption by companies as well as on European regulations on AI are planned. In addition, professional meetings have been set up to allow companies to establish commercial relations.

The pitches take place at the France Pavilion where the five winning projects of the Franco-German AI AI project were also presented, which aims to make our societies more resilient in the face of the various ecological, health or economic and industrial crises. .

The winners of the Franco-German APP

As part of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, signed in 2019, France and Germany have started collaboration in the field of AI and have launched this call, 25 projects bringing together 119 partners have been submitted, five selected who thus obtained this financing of 17.5 million euros.

Those are:

The project AIOLOS Artificial Intelligence Tools for Outbreak Detection and Response.

AIOLOS aims to integrate a wide variety of data sources and develop new AI-based models to monitor and detect the appearance of new epidemics, predict their future development, assess the impact of different interventions and define the needs in health resources to control these epidemics.

Partners: Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Angewandten Forschung eV (GER), Umlaut Consulting GmbH (GER), CompuGroup Medical SE & Co. KGaA (GER), Quinten (FR), Sanofi Pasteur (FR).

The project CONTRAILS – Contrails in the Climate System: from Observation to Impact Modeling and Prediction

This project aims to develop and couple trusted AI methods and physical models to improve the identification, characterization, data assimilation and prediction of contrails. The results of this project will provide tools to monitor the impact of contrails on climate and help inform future experimental tests to optimize trajectories by preventing their formation.

Partners: Deutscher Wetterdienst (GER), Thales Research & Technology (FR), Reuniwatt SAS (FR), Atmospheres, Environments, Space Observations Laboratory (FR).

The project RenovAIte – Boosting the renovation industry with AI.

RenovAlte will provide AI-based software to optimize large-scale housing and road renovations. It will cover the entire value chain, from data acquisition to decision-making tools for design offices, local authority housing and road management services.

Partners: OFFIS – Institut für Informatik (GER), VIA IMC GmbH (GER), Action Logement (FR), ALEIA (FR), Leonard (FR).

The project GreenBotAI – Frugal and adaptive AI for flexible industrial Robotics

This project has three main objectives:

  • ensure continuous production in Europe during pandemics,
  • ensuring European sovereignty in the automation of production
  • reduce the environmental impact of European factories – by reducing the energy consumption of robotic applications by 50%.

These objectives are to be achieved by developing an intelligent system which should allow industrial robots to adapt to the needs of the production line, to manage complex and laborious tasks and therefore to improve working conditions, to control defects during handling of items and reduce the installation and training phase.

Partners: Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung eV (GER), Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences (GER), GrAI Matter Labs SAS (FR), Arts et Métiers (ENSAM LIPSEN) (FR).
