UE Data science seminars and Challenge

Diplômes intégrant cet élément pédagogique :


Our master programs now include a series of 6 or 7 seminars given by active researchers in the field of data processing methods and analysis.

These seminars are intended to give students some insights on modern problems and solutions developed in a data science framework, with applications in a variety of fields.

In order to make these seminars a most valuable experience for all students, a scientific paper dealing with the topic of the seminar will be selected by the speaker and dispatched to all students about 2 weeks before the seminar. Students are expected to read and study this paper, and to prepare questions, before attending the seminar. Presence at the seminars is compulsory for master students. 

The seminars will be on Thursdays around 3:30PM (no sooner).

The oral exam consists in a 25 min summarized presentation of the scientific issues that were addressed, and a 15 min session of discussion and questions.

A second different topic is chosen by the student, and he.she must write a report on that topic, based on the seminar and associated articles.
