Transfer & innovation
On 18 October 2018, on the occasion of the 'Rendez-vous Carnot' meetings, the Federation of Electrical, Electronic and Communication Industries (FIEEC) presented the FIEEC Applied Research awards. This year, the second prize was awarded to Adrien Loseille, researcher within the Gamma3 team, for his work on adaptive meshing in collaboration with the SME LEMMA.
Launched in January 2018 by the Île-de-France regional authority, on Monday 15 October the 2018 Paris Region AI Challenge revealed the competition's four prize-winning start-ups. The company awarded first prize was TheraPanacea, created by researcher and professor Nikos Paragios, for its AI project applied to the healthcare sector and, more specifically, oncology.
Denis Engemann (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France / CEA NeuroSpin) and Federico Raimondo (University of Buenos Aires/Sorbonne University), under the direction of Jacobo Sitt, Inserm researcher at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière (CNRS/Inserm/Sorbonne University), propose a new electroencephalography (EEG) tool called "DoC-Forest" to establish patients' awareness. Unlike the other tools developed so far and reserved for a few expert centres, "DoC-Forest" will be accessible to patients all over the world. Their study was published in the October issue of the trade journal Brain .

The second volume of a series of books, entitled Meshing, Geometric Modelling and Numerical Simulation 2: Metrics and Meshes, Adaptation and Applications ,co-written by Paul-Louis George, Houman Borouchaki, Frédéric Alauzet, Patrick Laug, Adrien Loseille and Loïc Maréchal - all members of the Gamma3 team - has just been published byISTE.
Although the world has been shaken up by artificial intelligence and the exploitation of personal data, the place of individuals and the control of their data have become central issues in the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the law for a digital Republic. Célia Zolynski, Professor of Private Law at the University of Versailles - Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ), and Nicolas Anciaux, Petrus team research director at Inria Saclay - Île-de-France, seized the opportunity offered by the DATAIA Institute to enable a collaboration of computer scientists and lawyers to analyse the Personal Cloud architectures available today, and establish the responsibilities of each of them with the central objective of protecting the individual.
Inria is pleased to announce the launch of the scikit-learn initiative, a partnership with companies using scikit-learn. Its objectives are to support the development of this reference software: sustaining its high quality and adding new functionalities. Scikit-learn is a library in Python, an high-level programming language. It is dedicated to statistical learning (machine learning) and can be used as middleware, especially for prediction tasks.
MissingBigData: getting mathematics and computer science to work together for a better solution to the missing data problem
Julie Josse, professor of statistics at the École polytechnique and researcher at the French Centre for Applied Mathematics (CNAM), and Gaël Varoquaux, Parietal team researcher at the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, have decided to combine their expertise in order to tackle, together, the problems of missing data and to propose new decision support methods. The MissingBigData project has been selected by the DATAIA Institute as part of its first call for research projects. How did this collaboration come about? What are the challenges of their interdisciplinary research? Julie and Gaël present MissingBigData .

The Mathematical Olympiads 2018
Every year, the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre supports the Mathematical Olympiads by participating in the organisation of the award ceremonies for the Créteil and Versailles regional education authorities. This mathematics competition aims to encourage the emergence of a new scientific culture and stimulate initiative and a taste for mathematics and research among Year 12 students (all streams combined).
Within the framework of the Human Brain Project , researchers from the Parietal team are actively taking part in the multidisciplinary collaborative project  entitled Individual Brain Charting, which consists in creating a precise macroscopic map of the cognitive functions of the human brain. The ultimate aim of the acquisition of functional MRI data during the performance of behavioural tasks is to develop a veritable functional brain atlas. On 12 June, the international scientific journal Scientific Data , by the Nature group, published an article on this major project.
Results of call for proposal
At least three projects involving the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre selected by the DATAIA Institute
As part of its 2018 call for projects, the DATAIA Convergence Institute has selected GDP-ERE and MissingBigData, two projects led respectively by the Petrus and Parietal teams from the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, in collaboration with the university of Versailles Saint-Quentin in the Yvelines department and the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research). The Vadore project, led by the members of the Inria team TAU for the CNRS and the graduate school ENSAE, has also been chosen, whilst the Aviz team's HistorIA project with Télécom ParisTech is on the point of selection subject to funding.
