During his presentation, Kanji spoke about the current state of investments and opportunities in different geographical areas, including Europe, and highlighted the policies announced by the French president, Emmanuel Macron and said that “although London is currently the leading market, France is now appearing as a great alternative for R&D in artificial intelligence”. He also mentioned Spain and Barcelona in particular as one of the new cities that is creating new and exciting businesses.
