Having fun, learning and sharing: the contenders unanimously agree that they did all three at this tournament. And more than that: working in the conditions provided an opportunity to expand their technical culture, sharpen their skills and learn from the experience that Renault Digital’s teams have gathered in artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge disciplines.
It was a school project at first, but then a real group of friends started coming together around it. We have learnt a lot about artificial intelligence, from a technical standpoint especially,
reports Maxime, from EPITA.
While they were fine-tuning their cars, they also started building a network of contacts in the company. Some of the students are now thinking about starting their career at Renault Group.
This kind of playing field for tech enthusiasts is a “magnet” for talent and Renault Group is naturally excited that the students taking part in this tournament are starting to consider their options in the professional world. Renault Group CEO Luca de Meo, who was at the Renault Digital DIY Robocars France stand on Friday, made that point: “We have a very important retraining challenge in-house but we also need to bring in new blood from schools and universities. We need initiatives everywhere that show that changing our culture at Renault also include integrating young people. This is very important to me.”
* A field of artificial technology that can analyse data sets to learn and improve its performance.
