An alliance between Chinese and French institutions of higher education to promote artificial intelligence (AI) is established so as to apply innovation to a wider spectrum of domains by means of cross-disciplinary international cooperation.

Eight educational institutions from the two countires, including Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University and Sorbonne University, set up the France-China AI Consortium.

"This alliance brings together a galaxy of AI experts from China and France and is of immense significance to addressing major challenges in AI. The application of algorithms and data analyses will produce a far-flung impact on every aspect of daily life. This cooperation will enable both countries to make joint efforts to resolve these challenges," said French mathematician and Fields medalist Cedric Villani.
