What you will learn

An international programme, rooted in Research

Digital Sciences grows up on the rich field of our international network of scientists, the guests of the CRI. They bring life sciences closer to the sciences of learning it. They move the frontiers of knowledge. The scientific materials are the data coming from living systems, social systems, and machines. You will learn computer knowledge, under the light of the sociology of digital worlds.

Computer Sciences, Applications, and Engineering
  • AI: classification algorithms, regression, clustering, neural network, prediction
  • Data Science: collection, preparation, storage, processing, exploitation of heterogeneous data (images and texts, Open Data, Data visualization, etc.)
  • Robotics: modular and interactive robotics, developmental robotics (learning robots), biomechanics
  • Reality/virtuality: design of virtual environments, observation of behaviors
  • Modeling, systems, business processes, RPA, Open Source tools
  • Blockchain, introduction to quantum computing, IoT
  • IT frontiers (health, education, public services, etc.)
Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Systems
  • Involvement of the IT Professions in the collective responsibility of changes in societies and practices
  • Controversies in social sciences: a computer science in time of Anthropocene
  • Sociology of digital transformations
  • Law, regulations, freedoms, disinformation, discrimination.
  • Ethics by design, the question of commonalities, open sciences
  • Management, Future of work, AI and task modeling: how to place professional collectives in a position to get involved?
  • Critical approach to collective intelligence, design thinking, agile approach, citizen mobilization, new forms of democracy (continuous democracy, platform state, ...)

A learning experience

Digital Sciences students are going to experiment:

Complex and stimulating environments: research laboratories, schools, the university of the future, corporate R&D, citizen labs, etc. All projects are linked to subjects of rapid digital transformation.

Real data sets, to implement solutions to real problems, designed collectively.

A personalised learning path, co-designed at the beginning of the year, based on self-evaluation and personal development, supported by project, research and skills mentoring.

A learning ecosystem, vibrant with international events, creativity, and collective intelligence, welcoming for all through its quality of exchange and relationships.

A fluid training: starting with an intensive 4 week bootcamp training, followed by intensive courses, masterclasses, continuous training through practice(internship/apprenticeship allowing professionalization to co-exist), the different modalities respond to the analysis of each individual situation.

Pedagogical team

Our teachers, partners and inspirations

  • CRI professors and researchers, engaged in scientific approaches to transform open science, open learning and ecological challenges.
  • Research professors of University of Paris an other universities in France and abroad
  • CRI’s network of friends and partners, as Hub France IA, Unesco, AFD and a network of Alumni working all around the world
  • Teachers, researchers, and professionals also working in Engineering schools and corporate R&D departments in France and abroad.

Master AIRE is part of EURIP Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Research

Digital Ethical Lab

The Digital Ethical Lab aims to open discussions around subjects related with ethics and technology.

A series of conferences are organized every semester, bringing to the table experts from the industry and research institutions.

The analysis of the dynamics between research, business, privacy and ethics are the focus of the seminars.

Some of the subjects of discussion in 2020-2021 are:

  • Open data for government and science
  • Ethics and AI
  • Humanity of Digital Anthropocene
  • Right to disconnect, possible in times of remote working/learning?
