Research and innovation, in the fields of computer science and information technology, constitute the primary source of the academic programs of the EPITA engineering school of Computer Science. The training of future engineers requires teachers who are up to date with the most recent technologies and perfectly aligned with the research world.
Central to tomorrow’s challenges
Cybersecurity ensures that data is managed in optimal and secure conditions in terms of acquisition, transport, processing, storage, and provisioning. All of these stages offer potentially as many opportunities for cybercriminals. Data protection has become one of the major challenges of our time and the stakes are political, economic and military as well as criminal to various extent. How to protect data while guaranteeing access to authorized persons? How to create a trusted digital society while protecting individual liberties?
Internet Of Things
Connected objects or Internet of Things (IoT) are everywhere. Whether they are simple “fun gadgets”, medical devices or industrial systems, etc., they are complex. Their common point is to be connected to open networks such as the Cloud / Internet, posing therefore complicated development, communication and security issues.
Image processing is changing our daily lives. Recent advances in recognition systems have opened up new perspectives in many fields, from medical to satellite and automatic document analysis.
Knowledge based AI
Knowledge-based systems (KBS) have dominated research and applications in the field of Artificial Intelligence for years. They use a completely different approach to AI than statistical AI by using explicit knowledge instead of neural networks and Machine Learning. The statistical AI seeks to reason while KBS reproduce from known data. If statistical AI currently produces remarkable results, how can we develop KBS today?
AI: Machine learning
Machine Learning is the set of algorithms that allow a system to “learn” from examples and data… The system will make a prediction from the data provided to it during its learning phase.
Whereas current computers use bits (0 or 1), quantum computers use qubits which, according to the laws of quantum mechanics, can represent a combination of 0 and 1 at the same time, thanks to the principle of superposition.
Virtual and augmented reality
The augmented reality consists of adding 3D virtual elements in a real environment. As for virtual reality, it consists in immersing the user in a computer-generated world.
Fintech stands for Financial Technology. This word encompasses start-ups and small businesses that use the most innovative digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and mobile applications.
Maker Space, a place
for creation, innovation and collaboration
Inaugurated in 2022 by the ATELIER student association and the school’s directorate, the Maker Space, or FabLab, is a place to meet, collaborate and create, to benefit from advice and expertise, to find answers to questions and overcome technical challenges.
Located in the 7 EPITA campuses, they are accessible to all students, administrators, professors and incubated start-ups. This is the place where they will be able to imagine, design and prototype the services of the future.
