Title: segregation in cities

 

The lecture will examine social and ethnic segregation in modern metropolitan areas, with a special focus on French cities. The costs and benefits of urban segregation will be discussed from an economic point of view, building on simple urban economic models. Empirical analysis on educational and employment outcomes of segregated minorities will be presented, with a special emphasis on the French « banlieues ». Reinforcing the social mix of neighborhoods or offering moving opportunity to segregated people are at the heart of various public instruments. In France, the efficiency of social housing policy (SRU law) and actions in favor of separated suburban areas (politique de la ville) will be questioned using this methodological background.

Title: Insuring climate risk and natural disasters : the impact of big data

Heat waves, cyclons and other climate disasters are increasing with climate warming and threaten the most vulnerable countries. The diffusion of new technologies and new data allow a better understanding of such risks and widen the frontier of what is insurable

Title: Risks in the Banking Industry

Business globalization, new emerged economic areas, multinational corporate firms and euro zone indebted states have generated an increasing banking credit exposure whilst simultaneously, financial markets innovation eases risk transfer through markets. This “marketisation” of risks, notably credit risk, generated a systemic risk that led to 2008 crisis and maintains a high volatility. Regulators ask for more control and better risk management in order to prevent future crisis.

The introductory presentation by students should be a short brief around this topic and present thei opinion and recommendations on “how to better manage risks in the banking industry” today and tomorrow.

Trading: A.Levy Rueff (Exotikequation)

 

Title: From the open outcry market to DeepMind: the great upheaval

The golden age of 'locals' (independent traders dealing on the physical floors of the exchanges) was only 25 years ago. At the outcry, we used to price and hedge products such as options interpolating reference prices printed on paper sheets. Since then, we have transitioned to the comfort of dealing rooms, assisted by computers. Their roles are getting bigger along with technological progresses and in many cases, trading robots are even becoming autonomous. This evolution is both an opportunity and a challenge for traders as it radically shifts the field of skills both human and technical. As such, this conference aims to help students rethink their value added in the business. Having started his professional career at the outcry, been an “old school” trader and transitioned to systematic trading, the speaker will share his inside with the students.

 

Based on the following readings, the introductory speaker will summarize his/her understanding of what are the main skills to be successful in trading.

Smart cities: S De Guio (Schneider electric)

 

Sustainable urban development is a key issue for the future of the planet. With more than 50% of the world's population, cities are already responsible for more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. Buildings alone represent more than a third of the world's energy consumption. To face these environmental and social challenges, cities will have to develop smarter and flexible infrastructures, from connected building to the ecodistrict.

Title: Bank liquidity risks and supervision

Communication in the media about the supervision of liquidity risks faced by banks insists a lot on prudential rations, that is on the necessity for banks to be correctly capitalized. We hear less about liquidity risks though they have played a major role in bank failure and bankruptcy

Smart mobility: D Gance (Diginove consulting)

Title: Smart Mobility

Smart mobility has to bring efficient answers to the economic, social and environmental challenges of megacities. Today because of the emergence of digital technology (i.e. new technologies and smart information systems) the ways of transportation have evolved to take into account people motivations and other factors such as consumption, eco-responsibility, social link, economic development of a territory...

They concern Local Authorities for governance as well as suppliers in connection with mobility of people and logistics. Among the technologies that have the greater impacts on performance, customer perception and new trades we shall study in particular the development of mobile Internet and 5G network, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, cashless payment, autonomous vehicles and intelligent infrastructures during this Masters’ degree.

 

For the introduction, students can focus on the following question: Regarding intelligent infrastructures in Smart Cities what would be their main characteristics for Smart Mobilities in order to be operated in an Infrastructures-as-a-Service (IaaS) mode ?
