Mark Zuckerberg founder and CEO of Facebook is excited to announce that Facebook is opening International Research Center in Paris… heres’ why in his own words:
“I’m excited for the opening of Facebook’s first international research center for artificial intelligence in Paris.
One of our long term initiatives is to build a new generation of internet services that are more intuitive and can more easily connect you with the things you care about by understanding the meaning of voice, text, images, videos and other information.
Our new Paris team will help lead our research in machine learning. We’ll continue sharing all our insights openly with the AI community through publications, open source and collaboration with other researchers. We’ll also be investing in top scientific institutions and have a collaborative agreement in place with INRIA. This opens up new joint study opportunities for talented research professionals, PhD students, and postdoctoral researchers.
France already has one of the strongest AI research communities in the world, so we think this is the ideal home for our new team. I’m excited for us to be taking another step toward the future of computing and connecting the world.”
