RIT’s Paris Director Delivers Address at ICT Spring Europe 2020
Laurent Ach of RIT Paris presented at this year’s ICT Spring Europe in Luxembourg. The conference gathers short talks from business and academic leaders in the domains of AI, Fintech, Space, and Cybersecurity. It promotes Luxembourg as a technology hub and allows European industries and startup companies to connect. The conference went “phygital” this year, meaning mostly virtual interfacing with a limited number of on-site visitors and speakers.
Laurent Ach’s presentation, “Understanding Image and Language with Deep Learning for E-commerce,” provided a short overview of RIT’s work and the capabilities and challenges of current deep learning technologies to extract knowledge from images and texts associated with product. He also sat as a jury member for “Pitch Your Startup” in AI, Machine Learning, and Big Data domains to recognize and attract the best and brightest startups in Europe.
We want to thank ICT Spring Europe and 2020 sponsors, as well as all participating startups, attendees, and speakers.
