Atos and Google Cloud have teamed up to create an AI Lab in London, which will offer a place for private and public businesses to identify new use cases for the tech across a range of sectors.

The idea is to enable businesses to find new opportunities for AI and also encourage developers to come up with new solutions to business challenges.

For example, one use case could be using connected sensors for improving the supply chain, while another could be using AI to reduce fraud in financial services.

“The opening of this first AI Lab marks a new era in enterprise transformation and opportunity,” said Adrian Gregory, CEO, Atos UK & Ireland.

“In combining the advanced capabilities of Atos and Google Cloud AI technology, organizations will have access to compelling solutions acting as a springboard to growth in an evolving, digitally focused marketplace.”

Atos’ AI Lab will be open to both private and public sector organisations and will be completely sector agnostic. Both businesses hope that as well as outing the UK at the forefront of AI development, it will also build London and the UK’s Bank of highly skilled AI workers.

As part of the partnership, Google Cloud will be Atos’ preferred cloud provider.

“The new AI labs from Atos will be a valuable resource for European businesses wanting to take advantage of Google Cloud AI capabilities,” Paul Emsley-Martin, head of SI Partnerships at Google Cloud added. “This is a great next step in our partnership with Atos, and we are delighted to continue working with Atos to bring Google Cloud AI, infrastructure, machine learning and collaboration tools to enterprises worldwide.”
