The objective of this course is to answer an open scientific or technological question with the tools studied during the track M1 -- DALETh .

Contact Ronald PHLYPO


A researcher or engineer from a laboratory or public/private company will supply an open scientific or technological question in the domain of experimental data. Most often, the question does not yet have an answer, and the students will work on this open problem in group during a two-week hackathon.

The class will have a final leader board evaluating the different solutions, part of the grade will be based on this leader board to motivate the groups through its competitive character.


track M1 -- DALETh
