Idiap celebrates its 30th anniversary

From September 8th to 11th, at Idiap in Martigny, we will celebrate this anniversary with you and our faithful partners. The program below will be regularly updated.


During our 30 years of existence, we have been part of many historical moments such as:

  • First internet connection in Valais,
  • Facial recognition on mobile phones,
  • Osama Bin Laden voice identification,
  • Speech transcription technology dedicated to Swiss German,
  • Development of artificial intelligence software Torch, used for example in most today's autonomous cars.

We will celebrate this rich heritage, develop it, and share our plans for the future during several events presented below, including the Open House Day program.
