Are the apricots ripe? Are insects threatening the squash? Have all the cows had their share of fodder? All questions that require the farmer or rancher to make rounds. The fruit of research into robotic vision at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, one startup is getting ready to offer an online image analysis service to automate monitoring and help save valuable time.
A security research team based at Inria center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, Tamis recently partnered with American networking hardware giant Cisco Systems in a move meant to design an innovative method for uncovering malware at code execution.
Created at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, SPADE is a tool meant to restore distorted audio recordings. Expressing declipping as an inverse problem and leveraging sparse regularization in the time-frequency domain, its novel algorithm significantly improves the state of the art in the field, as scientist Rémi Gribonval explains.
Anti-intrusion probes help oversee security for cloud computing. For these tools to functions properly, they must be carefully adapted to the services that are hosted. The operation remains manual. Problem: virtual machines reassemble themselves continually on the servers. It is thus difficult for the operators to continually implement the necessary modifications. Hence the need to automate the process. This is the purpose of SAIDS, a tool developed by the Myriads research team at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre.
Professor at the Rennes School of Business, Carole Bonanni devotes a course to managing new technologies. To give her students the opportunity to confront more realistic situations, she now has them work on software from new research at Inria’s Rennes centre.
When a system is made up of hardware and software, the intersection of both can at times turn out to be a porous border of a sort through which a malware might eventually intend to sneak. In Rennes, Brittany, France, Inria research center has teamed up with Secure-IC, a company specializing in the protection of embedded devices against cyber-physical attacks, in order to explore innovative methods for better detecting potential vulnerabilities at this crucial junction.
Developed at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, FASST software is used by audio professionals to separate the various instruments playing a piece of music or to isolate spoken language from accompanying ambient noise. With one reservation: the software remains difficult to use. Inria is thus going to undertake a technology development initiative to make it more user friendly, as researcher Nancy Bertin explains.
Backed by Région Bretagne (Brittany regional council), the ERDF and Rennes Métropole, the Inria research centre in Rennes is putting in place a new service aimed at businesses in order to facilitate their access to technology transfer and respond more quickly to their innovation requirements.
