How and why to become a partner of the Data Science Initiative?
The partnership is a contract of exchange between the Data Science Initiative group (of L’École Polytechnique) and an institution eager to provide answers to data analysis problems. The Data Science team provides public institutions with the possibility of becoming an actor in the development of research in data science.
Sharing your difficulties and points of view with high level researchers in this field will make it possible to develop a concrete project. Solutions will be adapted to your problems with tools resulting from solid and advanced research.
This exchange will nourish research with new and current problems that will challenge our researchers. Your institution will enter in contact with researchers and doctorate students that work on the science of today and of tomorrow for a lasting collaboration.
If you are part of the world of Data Science, and eager to meet the world of the applied research, contact us!
The Data Science Initiative is a reliable partner, as part of an institution that has proved its worth!
Some examples of institutional partnerships
Partnership with the CNAMTS
In 2014, the French National Health Insurance Fund (CNAMTS, Caisse Nationale de l’Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs Salariés) and L’École Polytechnique signed a research and development partnership for a period of three years, which aims to apply Big Data techniques to public health data. More precisely, Big Data techniques are applied to the data of the National Health Insurance Cross-Schemes Information System (SNIIRAM, Système National Inter Régimes de l’Assurance Maladie).
It is undoubtedly one of the largest health databases of the world (nearly 500 Tb). The topics of this partnership are numerous, ranging from the identification of useful factors in guiding protocols for particular pathologies, to the detection of weak signals in pharmaco-epidemiology and the detection of frauds.
Collaboration with SGMAP/ETALAB
L’École Polytechnique and the General Secretary for the Modernization of Public Action (Secrétariat Général pour la Modernisation de l’Action Publique) collaborate regularly in the field of Data Science.
This association aims to improve the effectiveness of public policies in different fields. In 2015-2016 collaboration developed extremely varied subjects, from the analysis of unemployment (in collaboration with the Employment Center, Pole-Emploi) to the prediction of car thefts in Oise (with the collaboration of the ST Service (SI) 2).
