Ai4geo is an R&D program with an industrial research phase aiming at lifting the technological barriers allowing the automatic production of2D and 3D Geographic Information with semantic content, key information used in high value-added services thanks to innovativeArtificial Intelligence methods adapted to3D imaging and Big Data technologies.
3D Geospatial Information
Ai4geo allows each of the industrialists during the more downstream phase of experimental development, to remove the last constraints & technological locks. At the end of this Proof Of Concept(POC) phase, the Ai4geo project will lead to the marketing of new products and services with high added value.
Data intelligence platform
Ambitions and challenges
The Ai4geo program is a French scientific and industrial response to address strategic issues related to the development of3D geospatial information.
A 4-year program
This 4-year Ai4geo program launched in September 2019, responds to the challenge of availability of 3D Geospatial Information, a challenge at the heart of many booming business sectors: Sustainable City and Smart City, Ecological Mobility andAutonomous Vehicle, Business Intelligence, consumer market.
Funded by the Programme d'Investissement d'avenir (PIA)
Funded by the Programme d'Investissement d'Avenir (PIA).
Supported by the competitiveness clusters
Led by Aérospace Valley, Cap Digital, Finance Innovation
Operated by BPI France
Operated by BPI France, the program strengthens autonomy in the field of 3D Geospatial Information, creates leaders in new markets and promotes access to these technologies by SMEs.
Richness of sources and sensors
The production of qualified2D and 3Dgeospatial information on a globalscale. This mapping will be based on satellite data that offer global coverage, increasingly fine resolution and frequent updating. It will be hybridized with other sensors(Lidar, Radar) from aerial and terrestrial platforms to increase its added value, its level of qualification and to meet specific uses.
Tomorrow's jobs in artificial intelligence & geospatial data
The structured collaboration of institutional and industry is the strength and richness of the consortium. The complementary nature of the expertise in AI, IT, 3D, and Data are at the heart of the project's success
