Paris-based communications company Havas Group is opening an artificial intelligence “innovation centre” in Montreal.

The company, a subsidiary of media conglomerate Vivendi, plans to hire 60 people to work at the office between now and 2020.

The centre will develop artificial intelligence products for Havas’s clients.

The centre is a joint project between Havas and French advertising company BETC.

In a news release, the companies said they were attracted to Montreal because of its strong AI talent base and the ability to serve both North American and French-speaking markets.

Havas Group currently employs 80 people in Montreal. It is one of the largest communications companies in the world with around 20,000 employees worldwide.
