France’s Thales has expanded its partnership with Neural Labs to support the development of AI powered smart city infrastructure. 

Thales is a provider of smart technologies, electronic systems, software, space, ground transportation, services, and equipment to the aerospace, defense, and security markets.

Headquartered in Spain, Neural Labs provides video analysis for smart cities to create safe transport solutions. 

The partnership will allow Neural Labs access to Thales’ Sentinel platform to quickly license its software, speeding up the process of deploying Neural Labs software. Neural Labs also stated that this would cut software licensing costs, giving them an advantage over competitors. 

Thales and Neural Labs originally entered into a partnership 20 years ago when Neural Labs chose Thales’ Sentinel for software protection. 

Since then, in the last three years Neural Labs estimates that using Sentinel has increased its revenue by 25% through reducing unauthorised software use.
