Artificial intelligence, French tech’s forward march and robotics took center stage at Viva Technology, a technology conference in Paris June 15–17 organized by Les Echos and Publicis.
A major theme was that artificial intelligence looks set to transform cities and virtually every industry. Lots of sessions were devoted to AI, start-up Heuritech, which has developed an AI-powered virtual assistant capable of spotting the latest fashion trends, won LVMH’s first Innovation Award and Cisco and Valeo unveiled a cyber valet service which enables driverless cars to park themselves in intelligent parking lots.
