2011 annual report
Digital technology at the heart of our lives
Digital technology now forms a central part of our everyday lives. It can be found in the majority of objects and services that we use every day, including the Internet, computers, mobile phones, cameras, portable music players, televisions, game consoles and GPS receivers, but it is also hidden away, sometimes in a less visible manner, in vehicles, industrial tools, medical devices, decision support systems, etc.
In the space of barely a few years, all these technologies have already profoundly changed our lives, to the point of becoming indispensable. They will continue to do so in the future, thanks to applications that are currently being developed. This is the route taken by researchers at Inria, a public research body, which is inventing the digital world of the future.
