Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science and a set of computational technologies that aim to solve complex problems involving a kind of intelligence. The field of Artificial Intelligence is relatively young (1956) but spectacular advances have already been made, with more on the way, making significant impacts on society. If you want to be part of building a future that benefits from responsible AI, nothing could be easier, just join our program.

Why is AI important in today’s world, and why should we seek to understand and develop it?

Artificial Intelligence is a broad and fast-developing domain of increasing importance, and it lies at the crossroads of multiple disciplines. Indeed, the challenges and perspectives of Artificial Intelligence are considerable, from both scientific and socio-economic points of view, impacting ethical, legal, and environmental issues, all of which are crucial nowadays. CentraleSupélec is at the heart of Artificial Intelligence developments for society by training qualified professionals, furthering cutting-edge research, and developing numerous academic and industrial partnerships.

Given the prominence of the United States, China and Canada in Artificial Intelligence, CentraleSupélec has a critical role to play in the field of Artificial Intelligence for engineering and, more generally, for society, in education, technological development, and ethical positioning. At the heart of the world-renowned ecosystem of the Paris-Saclay University, CentraleSupélec is increasing its influence at the national, European, and international levels. To achieve these objectives, CentraleSupélec has structured the activities in Artificial Intelligence around the AI@CS Hub, bringing together education, research, partnerships, innovation, and entrepreneurial activities. The AI@CS Hub is strongly associated with the Artificial Intelligence and Data Science laboratories, teaching departments, and project tracks.

The Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence is prominent among CentraleSupélec educational programs (Engineering curriculum, Masters, and Ph.D.). It has close connections to the professional world thanks to dedicated tracks that focus on energy, the environment, healthcare and industry 4.0. Designed to develop expertise in Artificial Intelligence, the Master of Science is part of the “SaclAI-School” program of excellence that has been accorded French national priority. This M.Sc. offers its students an unprecedented opportunity to become effective and meaningful actors with the qualifications to respond to urgent societal challenges.

Transportation / Mobility

Transportation accounts for a large part of energy consumption. Private cars are a major source of pollution. Transitioning to new forms of shared / sustainable mobility poses a huge challenge. Artificial intelligence has a major contribution to make in the mobility revolution, particularly the multimodal urban mobility of the future.

Crucial areas include designing resilient public transport networks, addressing road safety for autonomous vehicles, predicting traffic flows to minimize congestion, AI for transport operations planning / regulation and asset management.

Join us as we apply Artificial Intelligence to designing new forms of mobility for tomorrow.

Healthcare / Biomedical

Artificial intelligence is a powerful lever for improving medicine and healthcare. The benefits of Artificial Intelligence in medicine and health are everywhere to be seen: improved pathology detection and diagnosis; personalized medicine; informed patient care; better organized healthcare systems.

AI technologies and methods have already been proven successful in a variety of health applications and the potential to progress yet further is enormous.
In this sector more than in others, AI designers are faced with ethical questions concerning respect for private data.
If you are interested in using AI to build a more efficient healthcare sector that shows respect for the patient, come and join the MSc AI health track.

Industry of the future logo

industry of the future

Digital, physical and virtual worlds generate huge shifts in industry. Artificial intelligence is central to this revolution. Typical examples of how AI contributes to industry transformation include predictive maintenance, digital twins and robotics.
The industrial systems of the future will involve a form of collaboration between human operators and software agents in which the two work together (man-machine teaming). The challenges of this field of application require trustworthy, safe, robust and explainable AI in order to design industrial systems of the future that are driven by humans.

Join our program if you want to be a part of inventing and designing the industry of tomorrow.
