Paris, France – In an exciting collaboration, the iliad Group, the CMA CGM Group, and Schmidt Futures have come together to establish Kyutai, a non-profit laboratory dedicated to advancing research in artificial intelligence (AI). With a shared commitment to this project, each founder has contributed $110 million to fund the research laboratory.
Kyutai aims to address the main challenges of modern AI by focusing on developing large multimodal models and inventing innovative algorithms to enhance their capacities, reliability, and efficiency. The laboratory has already assembled a team of exceptional researchers with diverse academic and business backgrounds.
The founding members of Kyutai are optimistic about the potential of AI to shape the future and empower the younger generation. „Through this new investment in artificial intelligence, I would like the younger generation to benefit from all the opportunities that this technology has to offer. Thanks to Kyutai, researchers will have all the resources they need to create and invent the world of tomorrow. It’s a project that will bring together the world’s leading experts to tackle the challenges of AI,“ said Rodolphe Saadé, President and CEO of the CMA CGM Group.
Highlighting the capabilities of European researchers, Xavier Niel, Chairman and Founder of the iliad Group, expressed confidence in the potential of Europe to lead the AI race. „Europe’s got everything it takes to win the AI race. French researchers are known as being the best in the world. We have all the computing power that’s needed. And we have a hyper-dynamic AI ecosystem. By creating an AI open research lab here in Paris, we’re stepping up the pace even further. Kyutai will give us ultra high-performing, reliable AI models, which the entire European AI ecosystem will be able to benefit from.“
Patrick Pérez, CEO of Kyutai, emphasized the commitment of the laboratory to share its research with the wider community. „To achieve our ambitions, we’re building an exceptional research team and immersing ourselves in the major challenges of modern AI. We’re looking forward to sharing with the community the first results of our open research.“
