Digital Thematic Mornings

In addition to the exhibition and face-to-face conferences on May 29 and 30, 2024 at the Parc Floral de Paris, and its digital platform enabling the entire high-powered digital community to exchange ideas all year round, the Teratec Forum is offering themed Digital Morning sessions in April and October 2024.

Digital Thematic Morning - Smart cities - April 25, 2024 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.

AI and digital twins: undeniable assets for resilient, sustainable cities

Access the replay of the Matinale Digitale dedicated to Smart Cities, which took place on April 25 >>>

During this morning session, we invite you to discover the digital technological challenges and innovative solutions deployed in cities and metropolises to help them meet the challenges of climate change, accelerate their energy and ecological transitions, and improve their residents' quality of life.

  • How can we harness artificial intelligence to predict and smooth urban traffic flow?

  • How can we capitalize on digital twins to improve the thermal insulation of a building or the energy performance of an entire neighborhood?

  • What can we expect from the most ambitious research projects and new Lidar data surveys, which are reaching unprecedented levels of precision, to accelerate the development of innovation at the service of the major urban transitions of our time?

These are just some of the exciting questions we'll be exploring on April 25, 2024 with our experts at this 100% Digital Matinale of the Teratec 2024 Forum, held in partnership with Cap Digital.

Panorama: AI and digital twins: between technological promise and major urban challenges
With Professor Dominique Baillargeat, Director of CNRS office in ASEAN


Keynote: Paris 2024 Olympic Games: how to make the ring road more fluid and maximize the thermal insulation of the Olympic Village
With Jacques Beltran, Vice President, Global Head, Cities & Public Services, Dassault Systèmes

Keynote: How a computing infrastructure can serve the digital twin
With François Sabatino, President, Eclairion

Round Table: IA, AI, Digital Twins and urban transition, the importance of a multiscalar approach
Animated by Guillaume Doyen, Editorial Director (La Gazette des communes, Le Courrier des maires...) Infopro Digital

Players in the city of tomorrow are springing into action, using artificial intelligence and digital twins to accelerate urban change. This ranges from the creation of a digital version of the whole of France to the digital reproduction of a specific neighborhood or building. Advanced technologies such as large language models and deep neural systems are also involved, as are artificial intelligences integrated into urban equipment. Now, the challenge of compatibility and interoperability at different scales is crucial to the success of this transition.

With the participation of :

  • Philippe Sajhau, Director of smart cities, innovation and data, ville de Noisy-le-Grand.
  • Benoit Gufflet, Innovation project manager, Groupe Bouygues
  • Philippe Chevalier, General Manager and co-founder, Kipsum
  • Dimitri Sarafinof, Deputy Director of Programs and Chief Strategy Officer, IGN

Research & Development session

  • Presentation of the JUNON program: Centre Val de Loire Digital Twins for better management of local natural resources
    With Sebastien Dupraz, Director of the JUNON Program, BRGM

  • Presentation of the DesCartes program on hybrid artificial intelligence
    With Francisco Chinesta, University professor in digital physics, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers
