Teratec Digital Forum 2020
Round Table
Tuesday, October 13, 2020 from 11h00 to 12h00

In the era of COVID-19, how digital can serve health

A Round Table hosted by Julien Bergounhoux, editor-in-chief of L'Usine Digitale, was dedicated to digital technologies (HPC / HPDA) in the field of health with a with a major focus on COVID-19.

The health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting the economy, forcing businesses and society as a whole to adapt and find new ways of operating. An adaptation made largely possible by digital technologies. In particular, they play a crucial role in health, whether by enabling new uses of telemedicine for monitoring patients at home or by analyzing large amounts of data intelligently to better model the evolution of epidemic outbreaks.

HPC and HPDA in particular have a crucial role to play in accelerating the discovery of new drug molecules or the development of vaccines, but also in making personalized medicine possible through human digital twins. France has leading skills in these areas, but will it give itself the means to be a pioneer rather than a follower? And how should these technological advances be framed to ensure that this sensitive data does not fall into the wrong hands?

The major players in HPC, Big Data and Simulation debated the technological but also societal challenges of these new uses in this particularly critical field of applications.

Simulation and Big Data : technological challenges and diversity of uses

Discover through the plenary sessions of the Teratec Forum the new challenges and diversity of uses that digital technologies related to simulation and Big Data are for your companies.

Large industrial users have testified to the issues of the high-performance simulation in their company and provided their analysis on the strategies to imple-ment to master it well. Innovative technology providers and start-up presented their latest achievements and showed that these technologies, even the most advanced ones, are accessible to Small and Medium Enterprises.
