You are warmly invited to the screening of the documentary “Big Data” broadcast on 20 March 2017 on the Planète + channel and also presented at the Collège des Bernardins and the Cité des sciences at the opening of the Terra Data exhibition. Directed by Thibaut Sève / Produced by O2B Films / Original music by Julien Thiault.

The screening will be followed by a meeting/debate with Gilles BABINET, serial entrepreneur, author and Digital Champion of France to the European Commission.

Gilles Babinet is a French multi-entrepreneur, Digital Champion of France. He has created 9 companies since 1989 in various areas of activity: Escalade Industrie, Absolut Design, Musiwave, Captain Dash, Eyeka, MXP4 and Digibonus. Nowadays, Babinet has stepped down from the management of his other firms to concentrate on his role as executive chairman of Captain Dash. He is also a Non executive director at LinkByNet, a cloud service company as well as member of the Strategic advisory board of EY France. From 2002 until 2010, Babinet was also at the board of administrators of the Mobile Entertainment Forum, an international Association promoting leisure services on mobiles. Mr. Babinet is also an active member of the association 100 000 entrepreneurs.


For some, Big Data, the digital processing of human data, would promise paradise on Earth, for others it is synonymous with totalitarianism and abdication of man before the machine.
