We invest in R&D around NLP and contribute in the ongoing AI revolution

We operate an ambitious R&D laboratory with substantial investments: 26% of revenues are invested in research.

At Novelis, we are committed to using new technologies as tools to better serve our clients' business challenges and thus better support them in their transformation.

To meet these needs, we have set up an ambitious laboratory in terms of research and development with substantial investments: we invest more than 26% of our turnover in research.
This R&D laboratory is housed at the École Polytechnique and benefits from the school's scientific ecosystem. A dozen PhD researchers work there on a daily basis on fundamental and experimental research on AI: machine learning, image processing and NLP.

Our Perspective

Artificial Intelligence

In the years to come, even if we are already starting to feel it, Artificial Intelligence will occupy a predominant place in the digital space of organizations. Knowledge and mastery of AI, the ability to deploy projects and solutions around AI and to be able to meet the needs of business challenges, are skills that require a lot of time to acquire and master: this is the work we have been doing since our creation.

Intelligent Automation

RPA – Robotic Process Automation – is “the set of tools and techniques for automating business processes” : Novelis is a leader in the field of RPA and we implement Intelligent Automation within the company.

Software Engineering

In our daily life, AI is present in many fields, from medicine to automotive and industry… AI itself is a very vast field gathering several subfields. In recent years we have seen great advances in AI and software engineering : We want to advance the science of artificial developers.

Our projects

ESummarize: Use generative AI algorithms to summarize and extract key information from your documents

ESummarize: the generative artificial intelligence engine to produce accurate, concise summaries of your texts and documents. Our engine is designed to help you save valuable time by obtaining key information from your documents while complying with the RGPD. Thanks to our advanced natural language processing technology, you can rely on ESummarize to deliver accurate, consistent summaries that faithfully reflect the original content of your documents.

EShadow: Protect your data with the most advanced document pseudonymization and anonymization solution

EShadow: a state-of-the-art solution for document pseudonymization and anonymization, designed to help companies effectively protect their sensitive information. By pseudonymizing and anonymizing your documents, we ensure that sensitive information remains inaccessible, reducing the risk of data exposure and protecting your business from potential data breaches. You remain compliant with RGPD requirements.

OWD: Save time and effort by using AI to detect scenes involving keywords or objects in a video

A solution to detect words and objects in a video thanks to AI, NLP, Machine vision and other technologies. Object Word Detection (OWD) will list all instances where words are spoken and indicate the appearance of specific objects (such as persons, cars, lamps, etc.) in the video, along with their corresponding sequences.

AIDA: Automatically generate an application from specifications written in natural language

The AIDA development assistant solution uses cutting-edge advances in natural language processing to help companies speed up their development process and optimize the overall project flow.
