Vivre dans ce nouveau monde du Big Data.
Valérie is director of l’Institut de valorisation des données (IVADO), which brings together more than 900 scientists working to process economic and social data from all sources and all forms. She holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Polytechnique Montréal in environmental modeling. Her career began as a researcher in the field of life cycle analysis, a powerful tool employed to model the potential impact of human activities on the environment. Thereafter, she was named Director CIRAIG, International Reference Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services, and co-founder of CIRODD, Interdisciplinary Research Center on Sustainable Development Operationalization, of which she was the Director. By working with optimization and mathematics researchers to solve environmental problems she was convinced that our ability to generate, analyze and value big data would change the world.
