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.

- Big data
Security analysts continue to play an irreplaceable role in understanding attacks on information systems. These are the people the events records visualisation solution developed by SplitSec, a start-up being created at the Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique centre, is aimed at.
Many applications these days rely on the well-choreographed execution of thousands of tasks run concomitantly or sequentially. These workflows often spread over a large number of nodes. Hence the complexity and the need to organize them efficiently. Initiated at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, GinFlow is an innovative workflow execution manager that not only provides a mechanism for adapting workflows at runtime but also implements a technique for decentralizing the coordination of the execution, making it more fault tolerant.
Launched in Rennes as part of research carried out at Inria and Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée, Open Agora offers tools for businesses and local authorities to organise consultations that include voting.
Research - Cinema
The working methods of the cinematographic industry are rapidly changing. New technologies are emerging. They are revolutionising opportunities and impacting film content. They are profoundly changing the ways in which content is created, not only by cutting costs but also by fostering team creativity. It is against this backdrop that the University of Rennes 1 and Inria, the Public Research Institute devoted to digital sciences, founded, along with the company SolidAnim, a joint research and innovation laboratory devoted to the virtual environment 3D cinema industry.
Supported by French research institute Inria, SimGrid is an open source tool for the simulation of distributed systems. Over the last 15 years, it has become a staple in more than one scientific community across the globe, contributing to performance optimization in many contexts. The next challenge is to help SimGrid reach the industry, an effort for which Inria is about to start a two-year Technical Action, as project coordinator Martin Quinson explains.
The television of the future will offer viewers the option to choose among many viewpoints to follow the action according to their preferences. Around the world, researchers are already imagining algorithms that will make it possible to broadcast such video. But all come up against the same problem: the lack of raw material for testing. There simply aren’t recordings that include multiple and simultaneous viewpoints for large-scale scenes. Prior to any development, this body of images must be created. This is precisely the objective of Atep, a technology development initiative coordinated by researcher Thomas Maugey at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre.
Developed by the GenScale research team at the Inria Rennes–Bretagne Atlantique centre, the Genome Assembly & Analysis Tool Box (GATB) is designed for data from next-generation gene sequencing. It currently includes a dozen software programs for various tasks in computational biology. The researchers plan to include a new application to facilitate diagnostics for cancer treatment in hospitals.
Could software engineering find some inspiration in the way biological systems function? A multidisciplinary group of scientists spent three years exploring the concept in the context of Diversify, a European project led by Inria researcher Benoît Baudry. Their in silico experiments show that, just like biodiversity, software diversity is a huge plus when it comes to robustness and adaptability to changes.
