Last Friday night I attended Café Scientifique at Alliance Française de Canberra (AFC). The Australian French Association for Science and Technology (AFAS) arranged talks on "big data" (Mégadonnées) by local experts.

AFC promotes French culture and language. They have a modest building, like a school-house, in the Canberra suburb of O'Connor. The big data discussion was a little unusual and I did not understand what it had to do with Australia and France cooperating on technology. About the only recent cooperation which comes to mind is building submarines. ;-)
