Descartes is driving AI evolution in France

Descartes’ founders Tanguy Touffut, Sebastien Piguet, and Kevin Dedieu are honored to be recognized by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, for their contribution to driving AI evolution in France. Sebastien, Chief Underwriting Officer, attended a gathering of the greatest French AI talents, held Tuesday May 21st, as acknowledgement of Descartes’ role in advancing France’s overall ambition to lead AI globally.

We would like to thank all of our employees from over 30 countries, for without them it wouldn't have been possible to be recognized as a leader in the AI space.

We also want to express our sincere gratitude to President Macron, Mme Marina Ferrari, secrétaire d’Etat chargée du Numérique (Secretary of State for Digital Affairs), Mme Clara Chappaz, Directrice de La French Tech (Director of French Tech) and Paul Midy for their invaluable support.

Descartes’ parametric insurance products harness cutting-edge AI techniques and scientific research to provide our clients with precise risk assessment and coverage against weather events, even in the most vulnerable regions worldwide. As we confront the escalating impacts of climate change, our mission remains to create resilience through innovative insurance solutions.
