Exploiting this immense volume of data requires sophisticated mathematical techniques, which form the basis of Data Science. This transition from data to knowledge brings many challenges that require an interdisciplinary approach. Data Science relies heavily on the statistical processing of information: mathematical statistics, numerical statistics, statistical learning and machine learning.
Data Science is offered at Institut Polytechnique de Paris.
A wide range of mathematical and numerical statistics and learning methods are used from analyzing exploratory data to sophisticated inference techniques (hierarchical graphical models) and classification or regression (deep learning, support vector machine). In order to be develop on a massive scale, these methods require the mastery of data distribution mechanisms and large-scale calculations. Applied mathematics (functional analysis, numerical analysis, convex and non-convex optimization) also plays an essential role.
The first year is dedicated to the fundamentals in Applied Mathematics and statistics.
Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies.
Data Science has a strong impact on many sectors. There is currently a large worldwide shortage of data scientists and data analysts. Students from Data Science and Big Data courses are therefore eagerly awaited on the global job market. Like all fields of breakthrough innovation (e.g. biotechnology and e-medicine), there is a high need for high-level engineers and doctoral candidates.
