IBM Announces 1,800 New Jobs in France Within Next Two Years
The announcement was made at the Tech for Good summit in Paris, which was hosted by the President of France Emmanuel Macron.
Pursuing the idea of making France a “center of excellence” dedicated to artificial intelligence, the tech giant is looking to hire 1,800 specialists in France in areas including blockchain, AI, and IoT.
In their efforts to expand operations in France, IBM is cooperating with major clients such as Crédit Mutuel, Orange Bank, Generali, SNCF, and LVMH.
Building on the American classifications of “blue collar” or “white collar” jobs, Rometty said that IBM will bring a training program for “new collar jobs” to France.
In March, IBM announced that the world’s smallest computer will use blockchain technology and soon be “embedded into everyday devices”.
