On December 6, the Inria Lille research center will inaugurate its new demonstration area, where the results of some partnerships between Inria teams and start-ups will be presented. The prototypes include a robot gripper developed jointly by project team Defrost and the company TDR.
A team from the Inria Lille-Nord Europe research center has just created an autonomous drone capable of moving about alone for several days in a closed space, without the need for someone to stay close by to operate it or change its batteries. The solution? A blimp that follows new ‘model less’ robotic control laws.
Christophe Gourdin is a research and development engineer within the Inria Lille - Nord Europe center’s Spirals* project team. These last months, he has swapped his developer hat for that of a start-up project leader. XScalibur is expected to be launched in January 2019. It will offer businesses an innovative multi-cloud management platform.
The #CONEXT exhibition is in line with the French Tech heart: an innovation place, an international expo village where more than 100 experts give theirs e-commerce vision, a #CONEXT Retail Tour in line with the point of sale digitalisation, more than 100 conferences and debates...
The "humAIn " project, sponsored by the CNRS, University of Artois, University of Lille and Inria, will be presented during this conference about artificial intelligence.
L'Oréal - UNESCO Awards
Each year, the L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program awards grants of €15,000 to female doctoral researchers and €20,000 to female post-doctoral researchers for their research work. This year, 30 female laureates were rewarded among 900 candidates and Stéphanie Challita is one of them. She completed her thesis in the Spirals* project team at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research center.
Ten PhD students and engineers from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe centre took part in the Belgo-French Start-up Weekend which took place from 14-16 September 2018 at the CCI Grand Lille. This edition of the Start-up Weekend furthers Franco-Belgian relations by welcoming participants, jury members and companies from France and Belgium. A wonderful collaboration to mark our relationship with Belgium. Students from École Centrale Lille and the EDHEC business school were also present.
The Defrost project team has just received a best paper award from the Robotics Society of Japan for a paper published in the journalAdvanced Robotics. This article presents one of the team's research areas: the creation of a framework for the modeling, simulation and control of soft robots.
In 2018, the Inria Lille centre celebrates its 10th anniversary - one marked by its expansion to the heart of the French Tech ecosystem. Inria has acquired a third building within EuraTechnologies in order to develop its research activity to serve technology transfer and innovation. The inauguration of this building will take place, by invitation, on Thursday 6 December. 'Open day' sessions of the demonstrator area will take place early 2019.
Like Terminator, Repairnator is a robot equipped with an artificial intelligence. The most recent creation of the Spirals* project team, it has been developed within the framework of the technology development initiative ADT LibRepair won in 2016 by post-doctoral researcher Simon Urli. Repairnator is the first repair bot capable of automatically repairing computer bugs on a large scale. In short, effective and autonomous software that saves other software programs from code errors – and an open source solution available to all developers.
