France aims to become Europe’s AI center and compete with the US and China.

France is making a strong push in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and is taking all efforts to position itself as the hub of AI in Europe. The French President, Emmanuel Macron, stated that they are number one in AI in continental Europe and are investing heavily in research and development to accelerate their progress. Governments see AI as strategically important as it is expected to have a significant impact on various industries like finance and healthcare. France aims to establish two or three major global players in the AI field, despite not having a dominant company like the US. They believe in the potential of French startups and their ability to rapidly expand. Several local startups showcased their innovations in the recent Viva Tech event, highlighting the excitement surrounding AI advancements in France.

However, France is facing stiff competition from the UK and Germany, which are also working towards establishing themselves as the global AI center. The ongoing technology rivalry between China and the US has also made AI a new battleground. Despite this, France believes that it is well-positioned in AI due to its large talent pool and start-ups built around this technology.

France has been one of the strong proponents of regulation around technology. However, they have taken up some issues with the EU AI Act recently approved by the European Parliament. The French digital minister, Jean-Noel Barrot, expressed his concerns about the provision around generative AI and the EU Parliament’s attempt to solve too many problems at once through the AI Act.
