You are studying computer science and artificial intelligence, does that speak to you? As part of a partnership with the Metropolis of Rouenthe start-up Evolukidspecializing in digital and new technologies, looking for 10 students with good computer skills. The goal? Develop innovative projects on the territory.

“The idea is to make these young people work in the service of the community”, explains Morad Attik, co-founder of Evolukid and at the origin of this project called Kesk IA. And to complete: “These young people, we are going to incubate them, that is to say, have them integrate a program. We will accelerate their knowledge and make them work on PoCs [Proof of concept, NDLR], projects that will serve the community. »

AI at the service of the community

Applications are open: “We are looking for nuggets, the best, the most motivated”, insists Morad Attik. Indeed, this activity, which will take time and resources, will be done in addition to lessons. “It’s very rewarding for them, especially on CVs,” he continues.

The technology of the moment and of the future is artificial intelligence. With AI, we do incredible things.

This initiative is also for Morad Attik a means of accelerating and promote employment in the priority neighborhoods of the city policy. “We want to seek out these young people who are full of talent and who don’t always have the chance to express it,” underlines the co-founder of Evolukid.

In close collaboration with the Métropole de Rouen

In France, seven territories — including Métropole Rouen, that of Nantes, Trappes, and even Marseille — have been chosen to join this program.

On the nature of the projects, they remain to be defined according to the young people selected and the needs expressed by the communities. “At the end of the selections, we will present several works on the table. It will then be up to them to choose, underlines Abdelkrim Marchani, vice-president of the Metropolis in charge of higher education and research, student life and digital technology. Of course, they can present us themselves with a concept to develop. We are open ! »

The elected official insists on the fact that “young people must feel the project. The goal is not to make an order for usis to have something that drives them and motivates them”.

Identify thermal colanders, fight against waste, etc.

For his part, Morad Attik notes several lines of thought: “How to identify thermal sieves using AI? How to fight against waste in the canteen? These are areas on which these young people can work, even if everything remains to be defined with them and the communities. »

For the Metropolis of Rouen, it takes the example of heritage renovation. “We can imagine a project around image recognition. With a drone and artificial intelligence, we are able to scan a monument and check that everything is fine, schedule work as needed, etc. »

Maybe these examples will give some ideas. After the call for applications, the first works and workshops should start next February. In May 2023, students will then have to return their work. The most promising, at the national level, will be rewarded.

To apply, it is here.
