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.

Improving Bitcoin... with forks

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 30/08/2018

Created 10 years ago, Bitcoin allows secure and anonymous payments without going through a bank. The new currency is based on a particularly well-design mechanism called a blockchain. A mixture of cryptography and distributed architecture, this tamper-proof registry guarantees the validity of successive transactions. But problems are arising: the computing cost is soaring. Energy expenditure as well. It is also impossible to manage a large number of transactions per second. Specializing in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, researcher Emmanuelle Anceaume, from Rennes, proposes two new innovations to enable it to transition to another scale.

Using the cloud to simulate epizootics

Jean-Michel Prima - 21/08/2018

Large-scale simulation can help in deciding on the right strategy for curbing animal epidemics. But that requires a lot of computing power. Hence the idea of using cloud computing. The problem? Existing applications have never been designed to take advantage of the high elasticity of such an architecture. Developed at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, DiFFuSE is a new framework enabling not only the design and management of simulations operating on the cloud, but also the conversion of old applications to enable them to exploit this distributed infrastructure. As part of a future consortium, DiFFuSE will be used to create new decision-making tools for the animal health sector.

Why are girls shunning computer science?

Jean-Michel Prima - 20/08/2018

In France, very few girls are turning towards careers in computing. The reason? A widespread belief that these professions are primarily for boys and preferably for those who are a bit geeky. In order to dispel these prejudices, the Equality and Parity working group of Inria and Irisa organised an open day on 23 April at the Rennes research centre, for 48 students in year 8.

Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique and the IRISA, at the very heart of research into artificial intelligence in Brittany.

Nathalie Lacaux - 28/06/2018

At a time of growing interest in AI, the Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique research centre and the IRISA (Institute for Research in Computer Science and Random Systems) published an assessment of the research activity carried out in this field within their 45 teams. It revealed the significant amount of research work that is ongoing, rooted in the very DNA of these two Brittany-based centres and applied to a range of different fields, both in industry and in wider society.

VivaTechnology 2018: feedback from the Rennes-based start-up Dilepix

Nathalie Lacaux - 25/05/2018

The third edition of the VivaTechnology trade show runs from 24th to 26th May in Paris. This international event brings together thousands of start-ups, directors and thought leaders from across the world in order for them to invest, work together and exchange ideas. The Rennes-based start-up Dilepix, a company that began life within the Inria research centre in Rennes, was one of twelve Inria start-ups to participate at this major innovation event. We met with the company’s founders, Aurélien Yol and Alban Pobla, to find out how they got on.
