COMPUTING AND SOCIAL CHALLENGES
The path of computer science is above all linked to your creativity. The creative potential in this field is so vast that the evolution and improvement of many sectors depends on it.
CHANGE THE WORLD!
The health sector can no longer do without the technological prowess generated by digital technology. Surgical practices are assisted or even replaced by robots, which have the considerable advantage of not suffering from the human "factor". Exoskeletons have been created to give back a certain autonomy to people who have lost their mobility. Projects in this field are numerous, ranging from personal connected objects to take your own health measures to big data startups on the human genome.
Digital measurement tools have long been used for weather forecasting and for the prevention of certain natural disasters. While it is still difficult to anticipate earthquakes, cyclones are easily predictable thanks to the modelling of air masses recorded over the entire surface of the globe.
Digital technology is where we didn't expect it to be: thanks to an application that allows massive and targeted SMS sending, populations at risk of epidemics, floods, or other disasters are alerted and can be informed about the first behaviors to adopt to prevent certain diseases. In countries in conflict situations, a contributory mapping system provides the necessary information for a country in war whose terrain is changing rapidly.
Digital technology is becoming more widespread in educational uses. It allows for innovative ways of learning and teaching. MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), online training courses open to all, are developing more and more and are generating a democratization of knowledge.
Internet security is a burning social issue. Data confidentiality, the fight against terrorism and deviant practices are challenges that are constantly being renewed. Creativity in this field is more than ever welcome to address these issues.
Security is critical for enterprises and organizations of all sizes and in all industries. Weak security can result in compromised systems or data, either by a malicious threat actor or an unintentional internal threat.
In January 2015, Lucas Philippe, a student in Epitech's 2016 class, won two challenges at the FIC (Forum International de la Cybersecurité).
