Our Mantra

Here are the main principles that guide the purpose of the organization and the projects we carry out.

Data science as a tool, not an end.

We do not believe in technological solutionism. “Not everything that is possible is necessary”. We develop solutions that make sense and for which the introduction of tools based on data science is useful and proven.

The project is part of a social impact logic.

Whether it is to democratize the understanding of the opportunities and threats of artificial intelligence, or to develop tools that will allow society to develop greater resilience, our projects are part of a logic of impact.

The project piques curiosity.

The project allows us to explore new avenues for using artificial intelligence. It calls for applying a variety of tools and models in novel ways, and stimulates minds and conversations.
