Thales to Adopt French CEA’s Solutions to Hasten AI Integration in Defense Market Offerings; Bertrand Tavernier Quoted

Thales has partnered with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, or CEA, to use its multimodal generative artificial intelligence expertise to fast-track the company’s AI integration into its defense and security solutions.

Bertrand Tavernier, chief technical officer for Thales Secure Communications and Information Systems, emphasized the collaboration’s role in delivering “trusted, sovereign generative AI solutions” to government and military customers.

“This partnership with the CEA’s AI teams will combine the power of their research with our work at Thales’s AI accelerator, which brings together the group’s technological expertise and deep knowledge of the defense and security sectors,” he said.

The three-year renewable cooperation focuses on harnessing generative AI to improve interoperability within military alliances, such as using the technology to simplify communication among member countries during joint operations.

Alexandre Bounouh, director at CEA’s List Institute, specializing in smart digital systems, said the AI partnership is founded on “the long-standing collaboration between the CEA and Thales.” The cooperation supports CEA’s mission to use AI to improve the safety and security of the agency’s partners and stakeholders, he added.

The Thales-CEA collaboration manifested in March 2017 when their joint research unit, FormalLab, unveiled a new cybersecurity solution to ensure cryptographic code security.
