The IDEX LYON Initiative d’Excellence driven by the Université de Lyon and all its academic, regional and economic partners and stakeholders, was awarded on Friday, February 24th 2017, after the final hearing by the international jury.
The Avalon research team, a joint team between Inria, CNRS, ENS de Lyon and the University Lyon1, in collaboration with the start-up Stimergy, is proposing a new distributed Cloud approach. This approach notably opens up prospects in the field of optimising the use of data centers with a reduction in their environmental footprint.
A Big Data quantitative approach in the social sciences has made it possible to show the social stratification of society from the analysis of the social network and bank data. This work has been carried out by Yannick Leo in the Dante team, and the results have been published in the Journal of The Royal Society Interface. The study was based on the significant statistical capacity provided by a Big Data approach. Interview with Márton Karsai, senior lecturer at the French higher education institution ENS de Lyon, holder of an Inria chair and contributor to this international study.
In the context of the ANR veRTIGE project, Fabrice Neyret of Inria’s Maverick team participated to the creation of a solution to take people on an interactive tour through the Milky Way with high visual quality. Combining computer sciences, 3D sciences and astrophysics, the project took no less than four years to complete. This unique system has now been installed in planetariums all around the world.
