Founded in 1995, the ERIC laboratory (Research Unit 3083 of Universities Lyon 2 and Lyon 1 approved by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research) performs theoretical and applied research in the fields of data science and business intelligence. We aim at extract value from very large and complex databases, especially in the fields of humanities and social sciences. More precisely, our research lies in the following fields.

  •  Data Science: machine learning, forecasting, decision, complex, textual or functional data mining, multicriteria aggregation
  • Business Intelligence: data warehousing, intelligent integration of complex data, multidimensional modeling of complex objects, personnalized online analytical processing (OLAP), data lakes, metadata management, data security
  • Digital Humanities : management and analysis of varied data (in the big data sense), metadata, interpretability of data mining models, computer science and gender
