"We will hire new talent and partner with universities to offer internships and projects to support the National AI Mission," he added.

The new centre will join France’s growing AI ecosystem and tap into its deep talent base in design and engineering, to build advanced technologies in the space of human centric AI.

According to the company, the centre will, initially, focus on areas such as brain computer interface, building empathy in machines, and unleashing the power of AI in arts and culture.
