Conference scope : How data science revolutionizes Houstonian key industries: medicine, energy and space?
Join us to learn, exchange and share with French and American professionals on the state-of-the-art and future of Data Science and its impact on business. The event will cover topics such as data analysis, data visualization, and data security.
In a context where industries collect a massive amount of data, it is important to develop tools that enable relevant extractions of information for targeted analyses. The challenge today is to find ways to display this information in a meaningful and useful manner. Beyond data analysis, the question of data protection and data security is also a major concern as it often ties to confidential or private information.
All these topics will be discussed in a cross-field approach, gathering French and American major companies. Total uses Data Science every day to explore and manage its wells thereby helping making better decisions for the future. In the medical industry Data Science is about to revolutionize approaches and techniques; AT&T Foundry representatives will illustrate latest digital health innovations. Finally, managing technological data in the aerospace industry will be illustrated by a representative of Airbus.
Less known from the general public, Big Data also lies at the very heart of science and scientific research. French and American academic experts of data processing in Computer Science and Bioengineering will give insights of current interests in Data Science.
