Face Au Virus initiative
Face Au Virus is an open scientific initiative launched by researchers from Université PSL (Dauphine - PSL, ENS - PSL , MINES Paris Tech - PSL), CNRS and Inria, accompanied by a sponsorship from the company Emerton Data, with the objectives to contribute to general information on the Covid-19 outbreak as well as to help defining public policies for crisis management.
A key issue addressed by Face Au Virus is how to leverage mobility data in the modeling of the outbreak dynamics. To complement the health data provided by public authorities, the Initiative gathers additional data, provided by private companies (including Facebook and Roofstreet), which enable the monitoring of the evolution of mobility according to its various characteristics.
Face Au Virus pays great
attention to ensure that the use of data is carried out with respect for
fundamental rights and freedoms and in no way aims to identify individual
behavior. The initiative does not collect any personal data and only
processes statistical summaries of mobility data.
Jean Ponce has been honoured with the Longuet-Higgins Prize 2020 for the paper "Accurate, Dense and Robust Multi-View Stereopsis", published in 2007.
The Longuet-Higgins Prize is presented annually by the IEEE Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI) Technical Committee at each year’s Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition for fundamental contributions in computer vision. The award recognizes CVPR papers from ten years ago with significant impact on computer vision research.
The prize is named after theoretical chemist and cognitive scientist H. Christopher Longuet-Higgins.

Participate in Challenge Data 2020 !
Stephane Mallat, PRAIRIE chair, invites you to participate in Challenge Data 2020.
Data science challenges are organized by the Data team at ENS in order to put companies in contact with excellent students, engineers and researchers in data science.
The web platform challengedata.ens.fr includes the presentation of problems, and ensures exchanges of data and automatic evaluation of the results of participants. Lecturers can set up an account to select challenges adapted to their course and get access to a dashboard which monitors student activity during the course. The students can upload a report, which is downloadable by the pedagogical supervisor.
The course is designed with a wide target audience in mind: software developers who want to delve deeper in AI, scientists who want to want to acquire practical experience, or entrepreneurs who seek state-of-the-art technology to power their next idea.
