Humans and software: sharing intelligence

A-L C - 18/02/2019

The remarkable achievements of AI in the health sector, to give just one example, have made it a promising new field for GAFA and BATX (their Chinese competitors). Caught up in the myriad media releases and fabulous promises, there is a growing need for clarity and education. Within this context, we met with Erwan Kerrien, an IT researcher in the Magrit team, a joint undertaking of the Inria Nancy - Grand Est centre and Loria. Erwan’s work is centred around the quest for artificial intelligent images.

Using Algorithms to adjust doses of medication

1/02/2019

Adrien Coulet, lecturer at the Université de Lorraine and researcher in a joint team at Inria and Loria working in collaboration with researchers from Stanford University, has created an algorithm based on medical data to predict the need to prescribe a reduced dose of medication for a patient rather than a standard dose. An article about their research has been published in "Nature - Scientific Reports".

Storm warning for the Internet

Isabelle Kling - 23/01/2019

When can we expect real-time internet security “forecasts”, in order to predict where and when cyberattacks will strike? According to Jérôme François, a researcher and member of the joint Inria Nancy Grand Est and LORIA research team RESIST and Ghita Mezzour, a research lecturer at the International University of Rabat in Morocco, we may have to wait a few more years. However, these two researchers, who are collaborating on the NATO-funded ThreatPredict programme, are already pooling their knowledge and devoting their teams’ combined expertise to the pursuit of this goal and the creation of the required tools.

Amedeo Napoli : " Illness is not the same as a machine malfunction!"

A-L C - 21/01/2019

Artificial intelligences are often spoken of like that, in the plural, as if they were some kind of“wise creatures”. But those who don't know what the term actually covers need to be more careful in how they use it. Computer scientist Amedeo Napoli works in artificial intelligence, data mining and machine learning. He specialises in“knowledge discovery in databases”. Director of Research at CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and head of the Orpailleur research team–affiliated with both Inria Nancy Grand Est and LORIA–his work has applications in biology, chemistry and medicine, among other fields.

Partnership

The University of Strasbourg and Inria are giving new impetus to their collaboration in the age of artificial intelligence

I. Kling - 16/01/2019

The University of Strasbourg and Inria are today to sign a framework agreement that will enable them to give a more coherent structure to their relationship in addition to boosting their shared scientific research projects. In so doing, the two partners will be formalising a shared desire to give new impetus to their collaboration and to share their resources, the goal being to promote the emergence of new research subjects and to boost the impact they already have.

Anne Gégout-Petit : «Countdown» …

4/12/2018

The "intellectual game" aspect gave her a taste for mathematics very early on. She even wanted to pursue it as a career, thinking she did not have any practical options. Since then Anne Gégout-Petit has changed - as has the scientific environment - and she has developed a passion for statistical learning, thereby using her expertise to look for concrete solutions. Having been president of the French Statistical Society (SFdS) and now a professor at the University of Lorraine (UL), today she is head of BIGS (Biology, Genetics and Statistics) - a joint team between Inria Nancy - Grand Est and the IECL (Elie Cartan Institute of Lorraine).
