Artificial intelligence: Grenoble sticks to its roadmap – Les Affiches de Grenoble et du Dauphiné

The interdisciplinary institute on artificial intelligence in Grenoble multiplies research work and collaborations, to implement the national strategy for artificial intelligence (AI).

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already widely present in our lives. If only in our emails, spam filters benefit greatly from this technology which is also, whatever one thinks, behind the advertisements and suggested content on social networks or even behind the blown reading lists. on music apps. Thus for the past ten years, AI has entered our connected societies at full speed, to help us carry out complex tasks. Faced with the United States and Asia which, in this regard, have “a considerable advance», according to the experts, Europe, driven by the taste for discovery and exploration, as much as by the need to benefit its economy, has finally jumped on the bandwagon.

A route to Grenoble.

In 2018, Emmanuel Macron presented the grand plan for artificial intelligence at the Collège de France and announced his ambition to raise France to the rank of world leader in artificial intelligence (AI). As of 2019, four interdisciplinary institutes on artificial intelligence (3IA) have been created to orchestrate its smooth running. The Grenoble technology park, which has distinguished itself in IT since the 1950s, is thus one of the four university towns selected along with Paris, Nice and Toulouse. Should we therefore allow ourselves to be galvanized by the “superpowers” ​​of artificial intelligence? Its ability to process an immeasurably large amount of data to find information, establish correlation or detect similarities is breathtaking and far exceeds human capacities. But “AI doesn’t understand anything“, considers, deliberately provocative, the mathematician and former deputy Cédric Villani, to whom the President of the Republic commissioned a seminal report on AI in 2018. In fact, AI will be able to find clusters of cancerous cells on an image but has no idea what a sick person is, suffering or what a doctor is for. Similarly, the future autonomous car will be able to get from point A to point B but it will not know why it is going there. Still, all the players concerned agree that AI will transform society with major consequences in the fields of the environment, health, transport and land use planning. Just as much as in daily life and work that it will robotize, but above all simplify and make more efficient.

Guide values.

But because it often acts invisibly if not insidiously, it is feared that it will fall into the wrong hands and be used for its formidable efficiency, manipulating and conditioning people without their knowledge in order to operate an incredible order. . “When technology serves the common good, all is well», Estimates for his part Emmanuel Macron to clear the ground. Thus, the Grenoble 3IA wishes to “uphold humanist values ​​and use AI to help save lives, improve well-being, give more freedom to individuals, help the environment“, explains Éric Gaussier, the director of the Multidisciplinary Institute in Artificial intelligence (MIAI), the name given to the 3IA in Grenoble.
