Amidst the exponential growth of available data and AI capabilities, there is an emerging need for new expertise across industries. Hi! PARIS actively supports its partner schools in integrating and enhancing AI and Data Science within their respective and joint academic programs. The center spearheads initiatives to foster awareness, hands-on experiences, and serves as a unique, interdisciplinary meeting place. To address this skill gap, Hi! PARIS has developed a range of activities in data science and management aimed at training the future driving forces of industry. These programs are not exclusive to students of HEC Paris and IP Paris but are open to all students, reflecting the center’s commitment to broad-based educational excellence.
