The 9 fields of research

In order to face up to current and future technological changes and to invent the uses of tomorrow, 9 fields of research have been identified, each with its own ambition.

1. Digital Personal Life
Identify emerging uses and design new services for the production, management and exchange of enriched digital content within a more interactive and more immersive communication experience.

2. Digital Society
Design the outlines of a renewed society, from education to health, from nomadism to connected transport, from our life as citizens to the industry or the agriculture of tomorrow, gradually and deeply transformed by the digital, which will have become a fully social matter.

3. Digital Emerging Countries
Set up digital ecosystems that are adapted to the challenges and constraints of developing countries and which offer accessible connectivity to as many people as possible, as well as services that are suitable for local needs and compatible with the available infrastructures.

4. Digital Enterprise
To support the digital transformation of businesses, so that they will be at the same time humane, responsible and high-performance, by studying tools, forms of organization and ways of working which are flexible, collaborative, and responsible.

5. Ambient Conductivity
To design, with our ecosystems, the networks and economic models of the future in order to provide ambient connectivity, saving costs and energy and creating value.

6. Software infrastructure
Master the convergence between IT and Telecoms, the deepest transformations of networks, the cloud, and SI. Design a distributed “clouds and networks” software infrastructure and its operating environment so that new services and business can emerge.

7. Internet of Things
Take part in the emergence of software languages and platforms open to our ecosystems, allowing very large scale interaction between objects from different universes (personal objects, household and town objects, those of industry and business, vehicles and transport, etc.), between the objects and services, between humans and the Internet of Things (cyber-physical systems).

8. Trust and security
To perform research on new, so-called “high trust” architectures, proven to be secure, to protect personal data and to be enriched by use.

9. Data and knowledge
To develop algorithms, technical “bricks” and platforms respectful of private life for Big Data and artificial intelligence.
