A first step will be the creation of a “centralised AI practice” at Altran’s subsidiary Tessella in Portugal, focusing on automation, cloud, and machine learning. Tessella, acquired by Altran in 2015, is an international data science, analytics, and AI technology consultancy.

Altran is also involved in VfP’s Vodafone5GHub, along with Cellnet, Ericsson, the Instituto Superior Tecnico, Nimest, Parkio, and the University of Porto’s Faculty of Engineering (Vodafonewatch, #174).
