Coming soon! March, 17th 2016

With Fanny Mochel, clinical neurologist (INSERM/ICM/UPMC), and Marie-Christine Jaulent, specialist in public health data processing (INSERM/LIMICS/UPMC). The 8th conference season of Sorbonne University’s Sciences à Cœur (Science at the heart of matters) began on February 18, 2016. On one Thursday per month almost every month between February and December, around fifteen scientists from different fields will share the fruit of their research and thoughts on big data with the general public.

 

 

 

 

Mathematicians, linguists, doctors, computer scientists, geographers, biologists, philosophers and lawyers of Sorbonne University will explore multiple aspects linked to the profound changes caused by using large amounts of data.


This season’s eight conferences will combine scientific, sociological and ethical points of view.

The opening session ‘Data, information, knowledge: let’s decipher the data!’ took place on Thursday February 18 at 6pm in lecture hall 25 on the Jussieu campus.

Hosted by the journalist Daniel Fiévet, the conferences featured two guests: Serge Abiteboul, a computer scientist, researcher at Inria, member of the French Academy of Science and associate professor at ENS Cachan - Paris-Saclay University and Jacques Dubucs, a philosopher and researcher in the ‘Science, standards and decisions’ team (Paris-Sorbonne University/CNRS - the French National Center for Scientific Research).

This season’s schedule is now available.
