Minister Lipavský initiates the Czech-French workshop on AI technology
Minister Lipavský will host a two-day workshop bringing together leading Czech and French researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs aimed at boosting joint projects and long-term partnerships in strategically important, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
One of the key goals stipulated in the 2018 Czech-French Strategic Partnership Action Plan is to work closely together in the area of innovation success and start-up support.

Some topics of the workshop will be: usage of AI in open economic competitiveness, protection of individuals, and AI for the common good. Speakers will also discuss regulations and ethical issues, management of applied research in public administration, and the private and public sector.
