Illuin Technology is a young company carrying out strategic projects around AI and new modes of technological interaction.
Our challenge: appraise, integrate and master the latest AI technologies and human-machine interfaces
At the heart of the open innovation ecosystem of CentraleSupélec and Paris Saclay University, we were convinced in 2017 that codes needed to be changed in order to meet the enormous challenges and opportunities that this new generation of AI would bring to the economy and society. In March 2017, the 11 founders of Illuin Technology decided to take up this challenge with the support of the Randstad Group. The Randstad Innovation Fund became a shareholder of Illuin Technology in July 2018. François Beharel, CEO of the Randstad France Group and Member of the Group Board, world leader in HR, becomes a member of the Illuin Supervisory Board.
Our vision to change the codes is to combine the scientific and technical excellence of our projects in the field of data science and new interfaces with the excellence of a human-oriented Design Thinking and UX approach.
With an R&D investment of more than 400 days in 2017, 750 days in 2018, strong academic and research links, we obtained at the end of 2017 a Crédit Impôt Recherche approval, which allows us to participate in our clients’ most innovative applied R&D projects.
Illuin is inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion. This is one of the two lamps, erected on Middle-earth (Illuin in the north, Ormal in the south). In this legend, they were created at the beginning of the World by the gods, and they allowed the vegetation to grow for centuries.
has to be as talented as possible for our clients and functions in the spirit of mutual support
To be an Illuiner is to share this desire to be a pioneer and to take up complex challenges, while being eager for creativity.
What is Illuin ? Well, it is a horizontal, liberated and empowering organizational framework where initiative is strongly encouraged.
It is a shared desire to write an innovative and uniquely different story with our partners.
Finally, it is a strong team spirit, a ski weekend, a monthly team building event and regular afterworks!
Convinced that, as in all the major global technology hubs, the keys to success lie in a close network between the best Universities, the best research laboratories, the Open Innovation eco-systems where students, researchers, large groups and start-ups meet, Illuin has created a unique relationship with CentraleSupélec and the Université Paris Saclay.
