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.
