Global recognition for research and innovation
The Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators ranking recognises the volume,
success and influence of the patents filed by technology companies.
Thales has appeared six times in this prestigious ranking, reflecting
the company’s commitment to innovating, bringing inventions to market
and protecting its ideas.
This distinction comes at a turning point in Thales’s history. With the
completion of the acquisition of Gemalto on 2 April, the Group now
employs 28,000 engineers, devotes €1 billion a year to self-funded R&D
and maintains a portfolio of 20,500 patents, including 400 filed in
2018. At the show, Thales will also sign the LGBT+ Charter championed by
Autre Cercle, thus highlighting the group’s strategy of promoting
diversity and inclusion across its talent pool, as a way to free
creative potential and foster innovation.
Thales at VivaTech: AI for every decisive moment
Thales will be showcasing its latest innovations alongside some 30
start-ups from six countries specialising in artificial intelligence,
connectivity, drone technology, cybersecurity and robotics.
A series of demonstrations will show how advanced technology helps
real-life users to understand the most complex situations:
Columbus invites visitors to feel what it’s like to be
an astronaut on-board the International Space Station’s science
The autonomous train demonstrator lets visitors drive a
New York City subway train and see how they match up to the
capabilities of artificial intelligence.
Piume allows users to experience what it’s like to be an
explorer or a researcher working in harsh environments.
Geonav uses the Galileo satellite constellation to
prevent risks faced by high-level athletes, without the dropped
signals that often occur inside sports stadiums.
Smart New World combines the power of holographic
displays with IoT (Internet of Things) technology.
The 3D interactive hologram table developed with the
Australian start up Euclideon models anything you can imagine: cities,
objects, design techniques and much more.
Thales experts will also be taking part in around 40 panel sessions to
discuss how artificial intelligence that is trustable, explainable and
certifiable can be used to invent or reinvent the cities of the future,
develop autonomous trains and future medical imaging solutions, protect
the environment and take space exploration to the next frontier. The
schedule for the demonstrations and panel sessions can be found on the Thales
