[27/09] Round Table
In the ten years since its creation, the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre has seen its teams develop a large number of research projects in the extended sphere of artificial intelligence – to the point of creating an incredibly rich ecosystem. Guided tour.
[27/09] Round Table
From energy and the environment to weather and aeronautics, the need for modelling and simulation is a more pressing issue than ever, and one that concerns all the industrial sectors and societal questions. Since the 1990s, teams from Bordeaux have been at the forefront of research in high-performance numerical simulation.
Set up by Florian Bernard, a former PhD student on the Memphis project team, the Nurea startup is rewriting all the rules. Between the worlds of research and industry, as well as the fields of aeronautics and aerospace, and medicine, this is the tale of a scientific and entrepreneurial adventure.
With Inria having celebrated its 50thanniversary in 2017, 2018 marks the anniversary of another important stage in the Institute's history – the 10thanniversary of the founding of three of its research centres: Lille - Nord Europe, Saclay Île-de-France and Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest. While the Centre’s 10thanniversary celebrations are in full swing (www.inria.fr/10ansInriaBSO), let us take a moment to look back at its history.
A new startup from one of the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest project teams is ready to take off. UT4H: Ubiquitous Technology 4 Humans , holds the operating licence for Home-Assist , the flagship project of the Phoenix team. Dedicated to making it possible for elderly people to stay in their own home, this new company confirms the dynamism of “silver technology” in the region.
The 8thedition of EuroScience Open Forum is taking place from 9thto 14th July in Toulouse, on the theme “Sharing science: towards new horizons” . PhD students Cécile Mazon of project team Phoenix-Post and Aurélien Appriou of project team Potioc will be presenting their work. Cécile is working to create digital tools that will help pupils with autism spectrum disorders to attend school independently. Aurélien is studying the mental states involved in learning via electroencephalographic signals.
After Lille in 2014, Nancy in 2015, Rennes in 2016 and Sophia Antipolis in 2017, the Inria Bordeaux Research Centre is hosting the Inria Science Daysfrom 27 to 29 June, with the same aim: to unite the Inria communities around exciting research topics and illustrate the range of subjects, approaches and applications examined by the Institute in the digital sciences.

On Tuesday, 19 June, the AMDECC Project, launched 5 years ago through a partnership between Safran Tech, Inria Bordeaux – Sud-Ouest and the CORIA (UMR6614 CNRS Université de Rouen and INSA Rouen), received the Award for Best Collaborative Project, one of the Digital Simulation Trophies awarded by Teratec and Usine Digitale.
Interview with Lauren Thevin : using virtual and augmented reality to help people with visual impairment
Lauren Thevin, who is currently doing post-doctorate research with the Potioc project-team, wants to make technology, including virtual reality and augmented reality, available to help people with visual impairment. She will be presenting her research at the Futur.e.s festival at the Grande Hall in La Villette, Paris, in June, and at the ESOF in Toulouse in July.
The Poppy robot - which was designed by Inria scientists and came to life within the FLOWERS project team - has, over time, become an invaluable assistant in the educational world, in its different forms: Poppy Humanoid , Poppy Torso , Poppy Ergo Junior , Handy ... At the beginning of May, two teams of students won the national final of RoboCup France thanks to Poppy Ergo Jr. and will be heading off to Montreal at the end of June for the world final.
