Google's DeepMind to open AI lab in Paris

Thursday 29 March 2018 | 11:24 CET | News
Artificial Intelligence research company DeepMind, owned by Google since 2014, has announced that it has chosen Paris as the location of its first laboratory in continental Europe. The new research team will be led by Remi Munos, one of DeepMind's main research scientists, and former professor at France's Ecole Polytechnique. The Paris lab, like those already operating in the UK and Canada, will collaborate with the local scientific community, establishing ties with universities and with Google's new French research lab, unveiled in January.
