Call for proposals on Specific Topics in Artificial Intelligence (TSIA) 2023

Since its 2012 revolution, artificial intelligence (AI) has been introduced at the core of digital solutions and continues to evolve rapidly. These recent developments are notable, both at the core of AI and in its interactions with other research fields. Following the first national AI plan and in response to requests from the community.

The call for proposals on specific topics in artificial intelligence (TSIA) operated by the ANR is defined to:

  • encourage research collaborations in artificial intelligence in two specific emerging fields:
    • giga-models for automatic processing of natural language and multimodal data
    • smart fleets of robots
  • develop multidisciplinary projects associating experts at the core of artificial intelligence with specialists:
    • of cybersecurity
    • of circuit design.

TSIA targets collaborative research projects whose results will form the basis for scientific and technological breakthroughs.

This call for proposals is divided into four themes, each of which is subject to differential funding and a separate evaluation committee.

Descriptions of the themes, as well as details on the eligibility requirements for this call are specified in the call text available below on this page in the Documents section. The template to be used for proposals is also available in this section.
