Paris-Sud), and the CEREMADE (Univ. Paris-IX Dauphine). Its goal is to develop a Visual Analytics software platform to understand market segments for EDF. The platform is made of modules that analyze textual documents or numerical data and integrate them to find profiles of clients. This profiling leads to understanding the main concerns of market segments and plan price offerings targeted to these segments.
