Two teams of students from l’X ranked respectively 4th and 6th at the prestigious Southwestern Europe Regional Contest (SWERC) 2020-2021 organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and hosted online by Institut Polytechnique de Paris.
“A woman’s work is sometimes discredited... One should not dismiss something just because a woman has said it or it’s a woman who has written it.” Mariam Ezzedine shares with us her challenges and her experience as a woman of science in entrepreneurship.
École Polytechnique has once again improved its worldwide ranking in Mathematics and takes the lead among French Education and Research institutions in two topics and ranks in second position in five others.
The "Econophysics & Complex systems" Chair awards for the first time its "CFM Women in Quantitative Finance" PhD scholarship to Cécilia Aubrun so that she can carry out her research on endogenous liquidity crises. This scholarship encourages research excellence and gives visibility to young woman researchers in this field.
How to reproduce the human, emotional perception of an image? This is the issue addressed by Maks Ovsjanikov, professor at the Computer Science Laboratory at X and his colleagues at Stanford and KAUST. They created the ArtEmis project to allow algorithms to learn how to reproduce human emotions when faced with artworks.
The figures from the Secong Job Survey of the Master of Science and Technology (MSc&T) of École Polytechnique point out a majority of job opportunities in companies as employees are more and more recruited by consulting firms.
Studying air pollution using miniature sensors: a research team from the Laboratory of Interface and Thin Film Physics has shown that they are capable of detecting very low concentrations of nitrogen dioxide. Their work, funded by the André Citroën Chair, has been published in Nanoscale Advances.
Bitcoin is once again in the news, illustrating the prospects of the blockchain technology which is also at the heart of several start-ups nurtured by the École Polytechnique incubator, the Drahi-X Novation Center and/or launched by X alumni.
For Julien Prat, co-head of the "Blockchain & B2B platforms" chair and a CNRS researcher at CREST*, the Bitcoin frenzy hides the potential of the blockchain technology that underlies it, the stakes of which go far beyond questions about whether this cryptoasset is speculative or not.
The 10th anniversary of the nuclear accident in Fukushima on March 11 is a reminder of the risks associated with the use of nuclear energy. The X laboratories do not work directly on the nuclear energy currently produced in power plants. Nevertheless, several researchers are involved in the understanding of phenomena related to nuclear fission.
While searching for a massive black hole in the center of a nearby star cluster, Eduardo Vitral (X2015) and Gary Mamon (Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris) discovered a concentration of star remnants, most of whose mass appears to be distributed as small black holes.
During a cooling failure in a nuclear power plant, corium - a metallic and mineral magma in the core of the reactor - is likely to cause contamination of the external environment. To prevent these accidents, Mathis Plapp and Hervé Henry of PMC are working on its modeling.
Study the morphology of space plasma jets or the properties of exoplanets? Spatial phenomena - which are inaccessible to experimentation - are reproduced on a small scale at LULI and allow us to refine the theories on these distant objects. Two studies were published in the scientific journal Nature Communications this month.
Priyanka Das Rajkakati stands out as a remarkable young scientist with multiple talents, which are taking her to the moon, Antarctica, and the Forbes India 2021 list of India's 30 brightest young achievers.
