// Driving Business Innovation with Data & AI

In this year’s edition, we bring to the forefront concrete use cases across multiple domains, developed and implemented by our corporate donors: L’Oréal, Capgemini, TotalEnergies, KERING, Rexel, VINCI and Schneider Electric.

They share their use cases, some common among them, while also presenting their unique approaches and internal organization. This gives us a tangible view of the applications, limits, and benefits of artificial intelligence in 2024.
