CEO OF NEXYAD WAS A SPEAKER AT THE PARIS CHALLENGE STARTUP & INNOVATION SUMMIT ON AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) 2019 March 27th.
NEXYAD was pleased to participate to this summit on Artificial Intelligence. We could explain how our Artificial Intelligence -based software component SafetyNex is now embedded in many products worldwide and how it transforms industry (aftermarket for telematics – fleets & insurance -, new vehicles – cockpit and AD systems ).
We also explained how such a module, via a reward system, can be used by B2C mass market distribution firms to acquire consumers at low cost, in a “nudge” positive loop that will save many lives.
And we were very interested in other speakers presentations with so many different interesting point of views on AI.
Many famous speakers gave their view during the day, such as Jacques Aschenbroich, Valeo CEO; Luc Julia, Samsung CTO & Senior Vice President Innovation; Antoine Bordes, Facebook AI Research Director; Luc Bretones, Orange Technocentre Director; Jean-François Copé, former minister: Marko Erman, Thales Technical & research Director;
