We provide operational consulting in artificial intelligence (AI) for multimedia solutions including feasibility assessment, due diligence, and technology watch. We aim at removing the R&D risk from clients and brings back a working prototype that matches the business needs.
We mean artificial intelligence in the broadest sense: Mathematics applied with computers also known as statistical learning, pattern recognition, machine learning, signal processing for various media such as sound, image, video, text and of course tabular data.
Our expertise in artificial intelligence was earned through both academic research and corporate experience. Knowing how to combine the best of both worlds is the special signature. We mobilize and create cutting-edge research enhanced by concrete pragmatism to make sure our solutions work in the real world.
Our ambition translates into accomplishments towards artificial intelligence by maintaining close relationships with academia with scientific publications and collaborations, think tanks, companies thanks to research, operational consulting and teaching in business school.

Scientific culture is at the core of our philosophy. We rove across the fields and never hesitate to deploy alternative approaches borrowed from non-AI domains discipline when they work more efficiently.

We believe that Artificial Intelligence (AI) should be understood as an upheaval comparable to agriculture and sedentary life, the invention of writing or even printing. Those turning points altered our very relationship to the world.
All activities are now being affected by AI. For our everyday life, artificial intelligence is the automated emergence of certain aspects of natural intelligence such as learning, decision making, adaptation, prediction etc.
In practice, artificial intelligence is the science that allows machines to execute tasks from examples instead of instructions.
Warith Harchaoui holds a Ph.D. in applied mathematics and is deeply engaged in the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) in academia and in companies. He commenced his academic journey at École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, where he received his M.Sc. in 2008. His initial forays into the industry revolved around computer vision applications in startups and global companies.
He extended his academic pursuits at École Normale Supérieure de Paris, contributing to research at the globally recognized Willow laboratory. His scholarly interests encompass a range of topics within image, sound, video, and text processing, a domain where he has consistently leveraged mathematical models for innovative solutions. From 2014 to 2020, Warith embraced a corporate role in data science, working with the e-commerce leader in the automotive parts sector Oscaro.com. Balancing industry demands with academic rigor, he completed his Ph.D. research between 2016 and 2020 at the MAP5 Lab of Université de Paris.
