The Côte d'Azur is a candidate to host an interdisciplinary institute of artificial intelligence (3IA)
The Côte d'Azur has one of the highest scientific densities in digital science and mathematics in France. Sophia Antipolis is the largest and oldest technology park in Europe with nearly 60% of the 36,000 employees from more than 60 nationalities involved in digital technologies. It is in this dual capacity that the academic actors of Nice-Sophia Antipolis are preparing an application for an interdisciplinary institute of artificial intelligence (3IA) initiated by the Université Côte d'Azur, the CNRS and Inria to respond to the first call of the "artificial intelligence" plan launched by Emmanuel Macron at the end of March following the submission of the Villani report.
