CineViz, a joint research and innovation laboratory working for the cinema industry

Nathalie Lacaux - 3/05/2017

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.

Simulating Large-Scale Distributed Systems

Jean-Michel Prima - 18/04/2017

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.

Images for free viewpoint television

Jean-Michel Prima - 11/04/2017

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.

A gene analysis tool for cancer diagnostics

Jean-Michel Prima - 4/04/2017

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.

Ecologically-inspired software engineering for higher robustness

Jean-Michel Prima - 28/03/2017

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.

A better software for estimating wind fields

Jean-Michel Prima - 24/03/2017

A computer-vision program born at Inria, Typhoon is meant to retrieve vector motion fields from image sequences of turbulent flows such as weather satellite photos. After being used by California State University, Chico in conjunction with lidar imagery to assess low-altitude wind fields, this innovative software is now reaching the industry. At stake: finding the best spots for future wind farms or estimating the atmospheric dispersion of pollutants.

Immerstar, une plateforme d'expérimentation unique pour l'étude des mouvements humains à grande échelle

Nathalie Lacaux - 9/01/2017

Immerstar is a unique experimental platform for studying large-scale human movements. Whether it is sport situations, individual or collective, up to crowd simulation, the platform is coupled with a virtual reality environment. This platform of virtual reality allows us to immerse ourselves in the environment that we seek to study.

Finding Nuggets Mining Data

Jean-Michel Prima - 8/12/2016

Whereas the digital economy is churning out ever more dizzying volumes of information, the smart exploitation of such data bonanza paradoxically laggs way behind. Indeed data mining is faced with a glaring lack of adequate tools. More often than not, what is also referred to as Knowledge Discovery in Data (KDD) remains a predominantly manual process. At Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, a group of data scientists led by Alexandre Termier is mulling over novel approaches meant not only to automate the exploration workflow but also to improve results visualization and to put the user in the loop.

Inria Previz Tech Transferred to French SolidAnim

Jean-Michel Prima - 8/12/2016

A Paris-based company specializing in motion capture and 3D animation for the film industry, SolidAnim recently acquired an Inria technology that will enable directors to previsualize their work and pick between a variety of visual options before shooting the real movie. As scientist Marc Christie explains, in the wake of this successful transfer, both partners are now contemplating joint R&D work.
