And be sure to tune in live to watch the trophy ceremony and find out how ITU is supporting global innovation for social good.

Who chose the finalists?

The WAICF Honorary Committee, composed of 14 internationally renowned AI experts from diverse backgrounds, forms the jury and selected the finalists. These six finalists will come to defend their projects during battles, two competitors for each trophy. At the end of these battles, the public will choose the lucky winners live by electronic means. ITU was invited to take part to shine a light on these projects and their impact on inclusive, sustianable global development.

The World AI Cannes Festival was born out of the desire to bring together diverse businesses and individuals in Artificial Intelligence in a unique way. Through a rich and diverse line up, attendees are invited to discover and understand the many ways in which artificial intelligence impacts our daily lives through innovative ideas, novel information, and new findings in two days of Exhibition, Workshops, Masterclasses, interactive experiences, Keynotes and finally the Cannes Neurons Awards.
