The second edition of the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Workshop is fully sponsored by Télécom Paris' Chair Data Science & Artificial Intelligence for Digitalized Industry & Services and its industrial partners: Airbus Defence & Space, ENGIE, IDEMIA, Safran and Valeo. The Chair gets the support of the Fondation Mines-Télécom and is driven by Florence d’Alché-Buc, Full Professor at Télécom Paris in the fields of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.


Beyond the applications of our historical businesses, such as cyber security or military intelligence, Airbus is developing a new scope of AI applications. These innovations in aerospace must meet strong reliability requirements. This trustworthy Artificial Intelligence is characterized by three essential properties: explicability, robustness and responsibility.


ENGIE is a global energy player, present in nearly 70 countries on five continents (major player in Europe and leader of the energy transition), with three main businesses: generating energy, building energy infrastructure and implementing solutions to support zero-carbon energy transition “as a service” for its clients. Digital technology underpins its effective and sustainable solutions. Artificial Intelligence, used to develop innovative products and services, can accelerate the implementation of the group’s solutions.


IDEMIA is the world leader in Augmented Identity, combining security and biometrics. Its expertise is based on AI, which lies at the heart of its development projects. R&D focuses on cutting-edge technology such as pattern recognition in images and videos. The group is vigilant about staying at the forefront of research in machine learning, as its applications are deployed in mission-critical systems.


Safran is an international high-technology Group operating in the aviation, defense and space markets. The Group invests heavily in innovation and research, to offer its clients high value-added and disruptive technologies for the key programs of the future.

In this context, the Artificial Intelligence is a major stake for Safran and leads a specific R & D program on three axes:

- AI as vector of innovation in Safran’s future products, in particular by bringing more autonomy to equipment and systems.

- AI as a means of delivering better services to our customers in the operation of our equipment and systems, including predictive maintenance.

- AI as a lever for industrial efficiency, particularly through the development of innovative methods and tools in design offices or the automation of manufacturing processes.

Safran relies on structuring academic partnerships to help it conduct its AI research program and remove the most difficult scientific challenges such as monitoring of complex systems or AI algorithms certification for critical applications.


Valeo is an automotive supplier, partner to all automakers worldwide. As a technology company, Valeo’s research center dedicated to Artificial Intelligence for automotive applications conducts ambitious research projects, in particular in assisted and autonomous driving, where deep learning and reinforcement learning play a major role.

Fondation Mines-Télécom

Fondation Mines-Télécom is working to drive the development of IMT and its eight schools in their missions of training, research and innovation. It brings together over 80 corporate partners and 2,000 individual donors who undertake to support concrete projects with considerable technological, industrial and societal impacts in digital technologies, energy and the industry of the future.
