The startups at VivaTech 2023 in Paris

Daniela Musial-Lemberg

VIVA TECHNOLOGY is the most important event for startups and innovation players in France. The seventh edition will be held at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from June 14 to 17, 2023.

Around 110 start-ups from the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4. 0, Green Tech, Deep Tech/Tech on the Edge, Health, B2B Enterprise, Mobility and Future of Work will present themselves at a joint stand of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the Franco-German Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the technical university Arts et Métiers, the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT), the Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (INRIA), the Franco-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK) as well as the Franco-German University of Applied Sciences (DFH/UFA), the De Hub Digital Ecosystems and institutions from the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Berlin and Saarland.

These four KIT spin-offs are participating this year.

Mara Solutions 

The start-up Mara uses deep learning to analyse customer ratings on the internet and derive profound insights into consumer interests. Costly on-site market research should thus become obsolete in the future or at least no longer necessary in the capital-poor start-up phase of young companies. But that’s not all: the KIT spin-off promises to generate an individual response to every review with the help of its AI assistant – and automatically in any language.


This very special start-up addresses one of the central challenges of autonomous mobility with its innovative technology. The currently available technology is not yet suitable for large areas, as highly accurate maps are needed. Creating these and keeping them up to date involves a lot of effort. SafeAD’s mapless approach enables cars to perceive and react to their surroundings in real time via sensors. This could soon make the self-driving car suitable for mass use.

Semorai is a young start-up that deals with the detection of risk factors before production begins. This should save considerable quality costs. Currently, they offer their service exclusively for the automotive industry. Because in this industry, undetected errors before the start of production can be very expensive. Their AI uses text data as a source of information and has been fed physics-heavy reading with a focus on this industry. It is then trained domain-specifically for each start-up and recognises mechanical, electrical, even physical correlations. It then throws out risk factors with probabilities of occurrence and offers solutions.

Aimino Tech 

Aimino Tech aims to help businesses revolutionise their data with its cutting-edge generative AI platform. This is how actionable insights are to be gained. Redundancies as well as errors in company data and labels are to be detected through automated data cleansing. If gaps in the data sets have been identified, the AI fills them by means of synthetic data generation. Aimino Tech also supports data preparation with intelligent data processing through its generative AI. Particularly exciting is also the automated search across different data sources that companies receive via the platform.
