France is well in the race for artificial intelligence (AI) development, and now its G4 AI group has joined forces with the American College of Radiology (ACR), according to Dr. Jean-Philippe Masson, president of France's national union of independent radiologists (FNMR), speaking in a video interview on Tuesday at RSNA 2018 in Chicago.

Describing the U.S. reaction to the G4's new nonprofit AI company -- DRIM France IA, created in October -- he revealed that ACR is keen to collaborate on developing the first AI ecosystem in the world. This means DRIM France IA would be represented in ACR's AI group, probably making it the only foreign group to be invited to participate, according to Masson.

The French AI ecosystem is a "dream tool" that will allow the creation of many AI modules in line with professional demand, promoting AI everywhere for everyone and AI for France, he said.

"The tool has been noticed by the Americans ... because our concept is unique worldwide," Masson said. "We're not just in the race, we're in the lead."
