Fashionable Glasses Deliver Augmented Hearing

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 14/05/2019

Paris-based company 5th Dimension is about to launch innovative glasses whose legs sport an audio device capable of filtering undesired background noise, improving the quality of a sound of interest and conveying it directly to the inner ear. The feat is made possible by a combo of technologies including two cutting-edge signal processing algorithms provided by Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France.

NeurInfo Platform: Advanced MRI for Research and Clinic

Nathalie LACAUX (*) - 14/03/2019

The Neurinfo platform focuses on the field of in vivo human imaging and neuroinformatics, particularly in the case of diseases of the nervous system. It is open to a broad community of medical and scientific users at the regional, national and international levels.
In late 2018, Neurinfo was equipped with a new Magnetic Resonance Imager (MRI), which now enables it to acquire more data in less time and to observe human tissue in more detail.

Innovative Computational Tools for Comparative Metagenomics

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 6/02/2019

Analyzing plankton genomic distribution in seawater samples could provide valuable information on marine stock and help assess the impact of climate change on this biomass. But in those samples, microbial flora is sequenced without prior DNA separation among individuals. It is like not one, but myriad jigsaw puzzles whose pieces have been inadvertently mixed up in the same box. Comparing these pieces one to another and assembling them properly remains an elusive prospect for lack of adequate software. Funded by French research agency ANR and led by Inria research team GenScale, the HydroGen project has come up with a pair of new tools that will help biologists make sense of the data.

Journée Science et Musique

Science for all

Back in pictures on the Science and Music Day

Catherine Jacques Orban & Nathalie Lacaux (*) - 23/10/2018

This Saturday, October 20, was held for its eighth edition, the Journée Science et Musique, at Le Diapason on the Beaulieu campus in Rennes. More than 500 visitors came to this closing event of the Festival des Sciences. Alone or with the family or even with the 3 generations gathered together, simple curious people or confirmed musicians, passionate about Science, high school students or students in search of knowledge, all came to meet Inria and IRISA researchers to discover the interactions of Digital and Music.

Bringing computing and storage closer to the user

Jean-Michel Prima - 20/09/2018

A new team led by Adrien Lebre in Nantes, Stack is working to redefine the infrastructures of cloud computing. The goal: to relocate data centres to meet the new lag constraints of new uses (augmented reality, Internet of Things, etc.) while trying to minimise the energy impact. To orchestrate this transition from cloud to edge computing, academics and manufacturers rely on consistent open-source projects, such as the eco-system OpenStack supported by a community of more than 1,500 regular developers.

Mastering Non-Functional Properties of Software: Energy, Time, Security

Jean-Michel Prima - 11/09/2018

A European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program, TeamPlay aims at developing new techniques that will allow execution time, energy, security and other important non-functional properties of parallel software to be treated as first-class citizens. As Project Coordinator Olivier Zendra points out, this research is expected to have a significant impact on various sectors of the industry. Results will be evaluated through use cases from various domains such as computer vision, cybersecurity, satellites and drones.

Quantum Leap in Ransomware Tracking

Jean-Michel Prima - 4/09/2018

Located at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, the High-Security Laboratory (LHS) is coming up with a game-changing approach to ransomware countermeasure. Instead of relying on a signature database or scanning the system for suspicious behavior, the novel tool monitors alteration of the data in search of illegitimate encryption attempts. Called Data Aware Defense (DAD), this yet-to-be-marketed technology is patented jointly by Inria and DGA, the French defense procurement agency.
