The Eurosatory 2024 Defense Exhibition in Paris, France, will be the hub for discovering the latest technologies in AI (Artificial Intelligence).

As the Defense and Security (D&S) industry converges in Paris, high-level talks and panel discussions will delve into the critical role of AI (Artificial Intelligence) in addressing contemporary crises ranging from high-intensity conflicts to humanitarian and environmental disasters. EUROSATORY 2024 offers an unparalleled opportunity to examine the indispensable technologies shaping the future of security and sovereignty for armed forces and governments alike.

Reflecting broader industrial trends, a global race to dominate AI technology is underway, with nations investing heavily to secure or establish technological supremacy. The United States leads with a robust ecosystem that integrates cloud technology and AI development, positioning it at the apex of this race. Meanwhile, China has made significant strides by investing in biometrics and other technologies, further underscored by its prolific scientific publications on AI.

Not to be outdone, the European Union has made its mark with the adoption of the EU AI Act on December 9, 2023, establishing the bloc's first legal framework on AI, demonstrating its commitment to standardization and regulatory leadership in the AI domain.

Amidst this competitive backdrop, France emerges as a key player, especially noted for its large enterprises and vibrant start-up ecosystem. However, the challenge of retaining French researchers, who often seek opportunities abroad, remains a concern. The concept of "sovereign AI" is crucial for France, which seeks to carve out its niche by focusing on "frugal AI" — a model that operates on less data, enhancing sovereignty and reducing dependency on foreign ecosystems, notably the U.S.-dominated cloud services.

Arnault Ioualalen, CEO of Numalis and a participant at EUROSATORY points out that while the U.S. may be ahead in terms of AI doctrine, the real strategic competition comes from China, with its colossal investments and strategic focus on structuring its AI ecosystem through standardization.

The adoption of the EU AI Act signifies Europe's collective effort to legislate and standardize AI technologies, setting a precedent for future developments in this arena. As countries vie for technological supremacy, EUROSATORY 2024 stands as a critical platform for dialogue, collaboration, and innovation in the race to AI, highlighting the strategic importance of AI in the defense and security sectors on a global scale.

The Army Recognition Group has been appointed by the organizers of Eurosatory 2024 as the Official Online News Publication and the Official Video Report provider, offering the latest news and videos throughout the five days of the event.
