Nicolas Padoy awarded the ANR Chair in Artificial Intelligence for AI4ORSafety

Sep 21 2020

Professor Nicolas Padoy was awarded one of the 43 national Chairs for Artificial Intelligence for his project AI4ORSafety.

The chair is sponsored by the French national programme for AI, which aims to offer French and foreign researchers, with the support of their host institutions, substantial resources to build a team and carry out ambitious and impactful research projects. It is co-sponsored by the IHU Strasbourg, the University of Strasbourg and the Région Grand Est. The overall funding of the project is 1.1M€ over 4 years.

AI4ORSafety aims to develop novel AI-based approaches for automatic safety checkpoint monitoring during endoscopic surgeries, enabling the development of a surgical control tower for the operating room. It leverages the strong clinical collaborations that Prof. Padoy has built with the University Hospital of Strasbourg/IHU Strasbourg/IRCAD.
