21 Novembre 2022

Catégorie : Enseignant-chercheur


Université Côte d'Azur carries the Interdisciplinary Institute of Artificial Intelligence 3IA Côte d'Azur, in collaboration with INRIA, CNRS, INSERM, Eurecom and Skema Business School. 3IA Côte d'Azur is one of the four “Interdisciplinary Institutes of Artificial Intelligence” created in France in 2019. Its ambition is to create an innovative ecosystem, influential at local, national and international levels, and a focal point of excellence for research, education and the world of AI. Its main objective is to make AI expertise, algorithms, and tools available to academics, businesses, and the community, in order to have a significant impact in terms of economic value but also in public everyday life.

The Institut 3IA Côte d’Azur was recently laureate with the EFELIAproject of an important grant from the French Government (Program “Compétences et Métiers d’Avenir”). EFELIA stands for "Ecole Française de l'IA" and aims at dramatically expanding the scale of AI education in France. The main action points are (i) the creation of pilot training courses targeted at all disciplines, (ii) the creation of educational content (MOOCs, SPOCs) that can be made available to all French higher education institutions, (iii) the labeling of national training courses in AI, (ii) the setting up and management of computing platforms and challenges for students.
