Smartly Segmenting TV For VOD

Jean-Michel Prima - 18/07/2012

It looks like a well-polished on-the-shelf HTML5 application. “But keep in mind that TexMix is actually a scientific demonstrator!  warns research engineer Sébastien Campion. Our main goal was to gather and display the various findings of our research team. So we essentially packed into a single piece of software all these algorithms that TexMex scientists came up with in recent years. A lot of this research was financed through the Quæro European project.”

BlobSeer : A Storage System For The Exascale Era

Jean-Michel Prima - 18/06/2012

The ever-increasing size of data threatens to impair the efficiency of cloud services as well as science-oriented High Performance Computing (HPC). BlobSeer is an innovative storage system designed to improve massively parallel data access through a versioning device for concurrent manipulation of binary large objects (BLOBs). This approach prompted a keen interest from Microsoft, IBM and SAP, as Rennes-based Inria researcher Gabriel Antoniu explains.

Music in 3D

Jean-Michel Prima - 9/02/2011

To better separate the different sounds within a recording in order to remix them at will and rebroadcast them in 3D: that is the objective of i3DMusic, a French-Swiss collaboration featuring two SMEs and two research centres. Higher-performing algorithms could lead to the appearance of new applications for music professionals, as Emmanuel Vincent, manager of this research at the Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique centre, explains.
