CAdFE breakfast with Oliver Väärtnõu, CEO of Cybernetica at the French Residence

On 28 February, members of CAdFE (the Business Club for Francophones in Estonia) were graciously invited to the quarterly breakfast exclusively for members by His Excellency Emmanuel Mignot, the French Ambassador, at the Residence of France. The guest of honour was Oliver Väärtnõu, CEO of Cybernetica and Vice-President of the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This exclusive meeting provided a unique platform for CAdFE members to engage in cross discussions on Artificial Intelligence, Data Protection, Cybersecurity, Digital Identity and bilateral collaboration opportunities.

The breakfast at the French Residence was an excellent opportunity for CAdFE members to interact with His Excellency Emmanuel Mignot and Oliver Väärtnõu, who shared their perspectives on the development of information technologies and the partnerships between Estonia and France in this area. Cybernetica's CEO shared with the guests a number of projects on which Cybernetica is working on a daily basis, including the detection of data manipulation, the development of a data collection platform and biometric identity verification. He also presented the EUCINF (EUropean Cyber and INFormation warfare toolbox) project, supported by the European Commission and conducted in cooperation with Airbus, on the creation of software to help manage fake news and cyber warfare. A particular highlight of the meeting was Oliver Väärtnõu's insightful analysis of the differences in approach to artificial intelligence in France and Estonia. In his capacity as Vice-President of the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Oliver presented possible partnership opportunities between the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and CAdFE, once we officially become a France International Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the coming months.

On the invitation of Mr Väärtnou, a visit of Cybernetica will be organised for our members at the beginning of May.

Organised exclusively for CAdFE members by the French Embassy, this breakfast perpetuates a local tradition for the future International Chamber of Commerce.

CAdFE expresses its sincere gratitude to H.E. Emmanuel Mignot, Oliver Väärtnõu CEO of Cybernetica and Louise Dubrulle (Economic Attaché of the Embassy) and looks forward to future collaborations. The date of the next breakfast will be announced shortly.
