The 6 winning startups will be showcased on the Orange stand at the Viva Technology trade fair, from June 15 to 18, 2022, in Paris.
Six startups have won the first Data-AI challenge organized by Orange Fab France in partnership with Viva Technology: Beamo, Cardinality, Crowlingo, Pocket Result, Predictive Layer and Tilkal.
Launched in February 2022, the aim of the Data-AI challenge is to identify startups
developing innovative and responsible solutions or technologies in the field of AI and Data and to support them through a specific acceleration program.
The data and AI revolution offers a unique opportunity to support the Orange Group’s
growth and to demonstrate its social and environmental commitments, issues that are a
core part of its Engage2025 strategic plan.
The challenge drew a strong response, with 262 entries received in 2 months. The Orange
Fab France jury selected six startups whose solutions meet Orange’s needs in a wide range
of areas from customer experience, to operational efficiency, machine learning and business
intelligence. The main selection criteria included the business impact for the Group, ease of
integration, and commitments to ethical and responsible AI.
