Do you have a clue what’s at stake with Data Science at BNP Paribas ?

Did you know that BNP Paribas collects each year the same amount of data as some social networks? Data management has always been part of BNP Paribas’DNA. With the emergence of Artificial Intellingence the Group has reached another level especially with unstructured datas processing. As an example BNP Paribas developed an internal translation tool, recognized as more performant as some standard public system. This is one amongst many others daily challenges that our speakers will tell you about during the meeting.


Registrations are closed.

It is our great honour to have Philippe Conticini as a distinguished guest on Wednesday who will prepare the dessert of the banquet.

Distinguished for both his sweet and savoury efforts, he is considered by his peers and by the media as one of the figureheads of contemporary French and International gastronomy. He is especially concerned with the transmission of emotions through his culinary works and the popularization of such a work on taste.
