Datasquare - bâtiment ArtLab EPFL

Datasquare - une immersion dans l'univers du big data

Situé dans la partie nord du bâtiment ArtLab, ouvert sur l’Esplanade, le Datasquare est dédié à une exposition de longue durée sur la thématique du big data, ici incarnée par deux grands projets scientifiques de l'EPFL: Blue Brain Project et Venice Time Machine.

Ces deux projets, particulièrement complexes, sont mis en valeur dans des présentations hautement interactives. L'exposition propose également une interface inédite générant des visualisations de données-clé de l'EPFL: l'Ecole se passe ici elle-même au crible du big data.

Les deux grands projets scientifiques de l'EPFL présentés dans le Datasquare:
 

  • Blue Brain Project, composante EPFL du projet européen Human Brain Project, cherche à simuler la physiologie du cerveau humain en se basant sur une vaste collection de données neurobiologiques et cliniques.
     
  • Venice Time Machine, vise à reconstituer près de 1'000 ans de l’histoire de Venise à partir de la digitalisation de plus de 80 km de rayons de manuscrits anciens, conservés dans les archives d’Etat de la ville.
