To support our mission of transferring new technologies to industry, we initiated several R&D partnerships with companies in France and internationally. For businesses, the pace of digital transformation accelerated over the course of the year. Our goal is to support this transition through technological innovation.
Our results in AI are among the highlights you will find in this year’s Annual Report. Specifically, we completed validation testing on a deep learning algorithm using formal methods—a first. We also developed a new embedded AI circuit and a design and testing environment for upgradeable, expandable AI solutions. We also made breakthroughs in advanced manufacturing, another one of our flagship research areas. These included a far-reaching project to develop a companion robot for the industry of the future, and an innovative new rail-industry SHM tool to detect defects in rails.
