Data Science for Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences

This action (WP1) will exploit the huge potential of applying modern data analytics in ESES. It will overcome disciplinary and technical barriers and provide new statistical and computational approaches, in particular for data in astrophysics to better characterize exoplanets, in oceanography to better infer vertical exchange in the ocean, and in ecology to reconstruct interaction networks between species.

    We are organizing a two-day Bayesian workshop in Grenoble in September 6-7, 2018. It will be the second edition of the Italian-French statistics seminar, titled this year: Bayesian learning theory for complex data modeling.
  • The IGE is organizing a seminar about "Machine learning and numerical models in geoscience". It will take place on July 9th at 2pm at the IGE, Glaciologie building, on the campus of Grenoble.
  • Due to strikes, the seminar is POSTPONED. Ronan Fablet (IMT Atlantique, Lab-STICC/TOMS) will give a talk on Learning & Ocean Big Data: data-driven modelling, analysis, and reconstruction of complex dynamical systems.
  • The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute organized the workshop "Data Science in the Alps" on March 20, 2018. More than 90 persons attended the workshop that took place at the Stade des Alpes, Grenoble. We are looking forward for the 2019 session!
  • Workshop: Data Science in the Alps
    on the March 20, 2018
    Grenoble Alpes Data Institute is pleased to organize the first “data science in the Alps” workshop. It will take place on March, 20th at the Stade des Alpes, salon sud-ouest.
  • Pierre Borgnat from ENS Lyon will give a talk on “An invitation to Graph Signal Processing with Applications to Clustering”. The event will take place on Thursday 5 October at GIPSA-lab.
  • A novel method for co-clustering will be presented : an unsupervised learning approach that aims at discovering homogeneous groups of data instances and features by grouping them simultaneously.
  • Call for projects - September 2017
    from September 18, 2017 to October 15, 2017
    The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute launches a call for 2-years research projects with applications of data sciences in Life Science or in Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences.
  • French speaking international conference on teaching statistics
    from September 6, 2017 to September 8, 2017
    The fifth edition of the conference « Colloque Francophone International sur l’Enseignement de la Statistique » will take place in Grenoble from 6 to 8 September 2017.
  • On Monday July 3 from 09:00 to 14:00, come and meet scientists with complementary research topics
  • Open seminars about reproducible research
    from March 23, 2017 to March 30, 2017
    Arnaud Legrand (LIG) will start the open seminar series by giving a talk about reproducible research. Although reproducibility is one of the main principles of the scientific method, it has been shown that a substantial proportion of published research is not reproducible leading to the scientific 'crisis' of reproducibility.
