ATOS: The ENS Paris-Saclay, Atos and the CEA have created the "Industrial Data Analytics & Machine Learning" Chair

The ENS Paris-Saclay, Atos and the CEA have created the "Industrial Data
Analytics&Machine Learning" Chair for the development of a cooperative
program oriented towards industrial applications of artificial intelligence

The three pillars of the initiative are training at the master and PhD level,
joint research projects bringing together field experts and academic
researchers, and support for the development of spin-offs, and they will set
the foundations for a unique ecosystem in France stimulating innovation and
science

In Paris on 20 October 2016, the ENS (
É
cole normale supérieure) Paris-Saclay, a prestigious public institution of
higher education in France, Atos, a global leader in digital services, and
the CEA (The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission), a
major player in research, development and innovation, have signed a
convention for a partnership that will last at least 5 years and announce the
creation of anIndustrial Data Analytics&Machine Learning Chair
, to be based at the ENS Paris-Saclay. This Chair aims at stimulating
Artificial Intelligence-enhanced industrial data analysis for business and
developing disruptive technologies. The main axes offered by the program are
the following: a training program of excellence at the graduate level,
specific research actions blending the expertise of industrial with academic
partners, cocooning of spin-off projects and start-up initiatives with high
potential and based on sophisticated technological assets.

The huge rise in the use of digital data in all areas of science, technology
and society requires the training of high-level researchers in mathematics in
order to master data acquisition and processing and automatic interpretation.
The use of massive and complex data from the industry, or science, or
generated by novel communication technologies such as Internet of Things
(IoT), raises a major issue at the strategic, the technological and the
economic level. Mathematical approaches to massive and complex data
processing, particularlymachine learning algorithms
, are the vectors of a technological revolution which must be managed by
bringing together mathematicians and field experts from the areas where these
methods are used.

As such, the ENS Paris-Saclay, the Atos group and the CEA have decided to join
their forces together to seize this opportunity for research, innovation,
training and progress through the creation of a chair in the subject.

The "Industrial Data Analytics&Machine Learning
" course will focus on three areas:

* training - initial and continuing - with the "Mathematics, Vision and
Learning" MVA M2 Master as a foundation, based on data modelling,
mathematical techniques and algorithms;
* research, with the CMLA (Centre for maths and its applications) and its
"Machine Learning&Massive Data Analysis " team, created in 2012 with 12
researchers, as a kernel;
* the innovation and the sharing of experiences benefitting the dynamics of
start-ups and SMEs on the Saclay plateau.

ForPierre-Paul Zalio, President of the ENS Paris-Saclay
, "This partnership corresponds perfectly to the types of action promoted by
the
ENS Paris-Saclay: tackling industrial and societal issues to which
fundamental research may provide solutions. The rapid dissemination of new
knowledge to training is an equally important issue, which will be galvanised
by this chair
".

ForJean-Marie Simon, Executive Vice President, Director General of Atos France
, "Atos is involved in a process of close academic and industrial partnerships
in
order to accelerate its innovation processes and pass these benefits onto its
clients, particularly through its
Atos Codexsolution. This also allows us to expand our uptake of potential
young
recruits, with technological evolution and the emergence of big data being at
the heart of new subjects. This is why Atos is adopting a voluntaristic
approach in order to support the development of new networks and anticipate
their new needs and abilities
".

ForFrançois Geleznikoff, Director of Military Applications at the CEA
, "The CEA, mainly, its Military Applications Division, has maintained a
partnership with Bull, now Atos, since the beginning of the 2000s, for the
development of power calculators for defence, academic research and industry.
These calculators generate considerable amounts of data; it is therefore
essential to have tools which can process them while reducing the time spent
on analysis and taking into account the specificities of the different
domains. That is the meaning of this chair at the ENS Paris-Saclay, a school
of excellence with whom the CEA has been associated for many years,
particularly within the domain of maths and numerical procedures
".

About École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay (ENS Cachan)

L'École normale supérieure de Cachan became École normale supérieure
Paris-Saclay

The main mission of École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay (ENS Cachan) is to
train students for research and higher education, by providing them with a
top-quality cultural and research education, in the tradition of excellence
of Écoles normales supérieures.

Both a training centre and a research centre, ENS Paris-Saclay gathers 13
internationally recognized laboratories, in basic sciences, in humanities and
social sciences, and in engineering sciences. 3 federative institutes promote
interactions between the laboratories, and give support to interdisciplinary
actions, which contributes to ENS Paris-Saclay's originality and strength.

Bringing together disciplines, which no other institution gathers in such a
way or at such a level, is a unique feature of the school. In this
environment, students receive a research- based and research-oriented
training, reinforced in their own discipline, and at the same time,
interdisciplinary and internationally open, leading them to Master's degree
and PhD.

ENS Paris-Saclay is a founding member of Université Paris-Saclay, a
world-class scientific university, gathering forces of 19 grandes écoles,
universities and research organizations.
