Thales and Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi (SUAD) empower the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals to embrace the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI). As part of the virtual sessions on “Career perspectives” hosted by The Career Centre of Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, Thales Senior expert in Artificial Intelligence, Juliette Mattioli, conducted a live presentation titled “Building Artificial Intelligence for a future we can all trust”.
In January 2020, Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, (SUAD) signed a cooperation agreement with Thales for the creation of an industrial chair in the field of artificial intelligence. The agreement marked a key milestone in shaping the future of AI research in the UAE. This is also in line with the UAE’s vision for the burgeoning technology to act as a catalyst for the country’s digital transformation.
“As a long-term partner of the UAE, Thales supports the country through three main axes: industry, innovation and education. AI is one of the key technologies that irrigates these 3 axes. It is the defining technological revolution of our century, impacting all sectors, fields and modern society. Its pace of development has been so rapid that the very conception of AI is constantly evolving and constantly challenged. Through our partnership with Sorbonne University, we are developing young experts whose learnings and research will leave a lasting positive impact on tomorrow’s society,” commented Bernard Roux, CEO Thales in the UAE.
“At Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi we are always keen on working with strategic industry partners such as Thales to advance research and literature in the field of AI, and contribute towards the sustainable development of the UAE. We believe that empowering the next generation of STEM professionals with the science and knowledge is key to building sustainable and autonomous economies and towards the advancement of nations, and we are glad to work with Thales towards achieving this objective” Professor Jean Chambaz, President of Sorbonne University and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi .
