Big Data provides a better understanding of complex fields. This requires phrasing relevant challenges. C-K is a solution. / Olga Kokshagina & Yohann Sitruk
Originally designed to address the storage of nuclear waste, Hytec evolved into a generic platform dealing with carbon storage or natural resource management.
Chemistry is now able to synthesize hybrid polymers by combining metals with organic molecules. Labs are racing to identify the most interesting ones.
Aerogels? Imagine cloud chunks. This family of surprisingly light nanostructured materials has finally moved from research labs and entered the operational phase at industrial scale.
Quantum state feedback? This breakthrough offers many perspectives, both in terms of basic research and practical applications.
In many areas, decision-making is affected by the difficulty in producing reliable forecasts. Some developments of mathematics can reduce this unpredictability.
Economic theorizing does not follow the Popperian view of science: some of the knowledge generated is analogical. And research serves rhetorical purposes.
Advances in medical imaging make this discipline a laboratory for the latest scientific methods. Is there a place for experts against machines?
