Interdisciplinary research

MissingBigData: getting mathematics and computer science to work together for a better solution to the missing data problem

Charlotte Renauld and Carole Céard - 28/06/2018

Julie Josse, professor of statistics at the École polytechnique and researcher at the French Centre for Applied Mathematics (CNAM), and Gaël Varoquaux, Parietal team researcher at the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, have decided to combine their expertise in order to tackle, together, the problems of missing data and to propose new decision support methods. The MissingBigData project has been selected by the DATAIA Institute as part of its first call for research projects. How did this collaboration come about? What are the challenges of their interdisciplinary research? Julie and Gaël present MissingBigData .
