We aim to teach the fundamental concepts and important developments in data science and natural language processing. The target audience are students having completed advanced classwork in mathematics, statistics, or computer science.

Organizing Institution

Inria, the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics, promotes scientific excellence for technology transfer and society. Graduates from the world's top universities, Inria's 2,600 employees rise to the challenges of digital sciences.
