ETIS - Systems and Information Processing Teams

ETIS is the main joint research unit in the field of information science and technology at the Cergy site and in the north-west of Ile-de-France. ETIS conducts theoretical and experimental research to design and optimise increasingly complex systems, and learning methods for smart systems that need to be flexible and adaptive. This work also leads to technological breakthroughs in the fields of telecommunications and health.
