Other events

Challenge data

The FSMP supports the Challenge Data, a machine learning competition created in 2015 by Stéphane Mallat (DI ENS) and Gilles Wainrib (Owkin), where students and researchers can solve data processing problems (images, sounds, digital data...) proposed by companies.

The Data Challenge traditionally ends with a ceremony where the winners have the opportunity to present their solution to the public.

Math Innov meetings


In 2016, the FSMP Meetings became the Math Innov Meetings.

They are an opportunity for mathematical science researchers and business leaders to meet, discuss, decipher the world together, and exchange ideas to combine their talents.
