Teradata, our lives in the digital age

From April 4th 2017 to January 7th 2018, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie takes you into the fascinating and disturbing universe of digital data and proposes a deciphering of “big data”. The rapid development of digital technology has undoubtedly changed our lives forever by improving our decisions and anticipating events. But do we really know how are all the data collected processed, how do they produce knowledge, and do they affect our lives? The exhibition is already trying to define what the data is, everything around us being measurable: computers, telephones, connected objects … data that are stored every day in a complex way. How to treat, sort, check, transform? Terra data explains how the algorithms are there to enable the transformation and use of these data that have a real impact on our lives: health, insurance, employment … Numerous services have emerged thanks to digital.

THE CONCIERGERIE

Come discover a stunning building: The Conciergerie or the Palace of the Cité, located on the end of the island of the Cité, in the heart of Paris. Let us have a brief overlook on the middle age origins of this true urban castle. The Palace of the Cité was first the home of numerous kings of France, who all enlarged and embellished the structure, one after the other, between the 10th and 14th centuries. The king Robert II le pieux (972-1031) was the first to erect a real castle on the grounds of the Palace of the Cité. This residence was at the time confined in the ramparts built during the era of the Low Roman Empire. Louis VI le Gros (1108 – 1137), erected a huge dungeon, which the foundations are still visible today. Louis VI also built the chapel Saint Nicolas. Louis VII le Jeune (1137 – 1180) will then built in the Palace of the Cité, a royal oratory, which he will dedicate to the Holy Mary. This building is nowadays located underneath the chapel of the Girondins. It is under the reign of Louis IX (1214 – 1270), that the Palace of the Cité benefits...

REOPENING OF THE MAILLOL MUSEUM: THE EXPOSITION YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!

On the occasion of its reopening (after 18 months of renovation), the Maillot Museum presents the first major exhibition devoted to the artist Ben, to discover from September 14, 2016 to January 15, 2017 Ben is one of the major artists of the 20th century, known for his actions and works as its written sentences flash by hand or printed on monochromatic canvases. This is also a very caustic issue that gave its title to the poster of the exhibition “Everything is art?”. From the outset, a first work sets the tone, “I am ashamed to be here to see me,” and this mocking of people who might consider his art as “simplistic.” Benjamin Vautier, whose real name, was born in 1935. It starts with street actions, including a nice fancy store, and became famous for his writings who threw a challenging look at the world of art and distinguished itself by its philosophical and critical thinking. Each sentence as short as it is, has an immense potential for capital questions about truth in art, the role of the artist in society and the relationship between art and life. We meet at the Maillol Museum Ben’s Batte against the single...
