European Research Council 2016
Yanlei Diao, professor at the Ecole polytechnique and Télécom ParisTech, and member of Inria Saclay – Île-de-France research centre’s team Cedar, has been honoured with a 2016 ERC Consolidator Grant. This European grant rewards the scientific excellence of the researcher and her project, as well as her innovative vision in terms of "acceleration and optimisation of analytical computing for big data". It is the first distinction to concern a researcher who holds an excellence chair funded by the Université Paris-Saclay.
2016 marked a busy year in the field of computational sciences. Once again, our researchers worked to meet the social and economic challenges of our time: support the home, interconnected devices, robotics... Just to name a few, there were new partnerships and researcher profiles, software development. Discover (or revisit) the events that set the tempo for the year.
The PARIETAL project team, in partnership with Telecom ParisTech has published a paper entitled: “Seeing it all: Convolutional network layers map the function of the human visual system”, which reveals that models used by computer for image recognition have much in common with the human brain.
On 1 June 2016, the MΞDISIM team became a joint project team in partnership with researchers from the French École Polytechnique Solid Mechanics Laboratory (LMS). Team manager Dominique Chapelle looks back over the process of creating the project team from the end of 2012 following the close-out of the MACS project team.
Since his thesis alongside Gérard Berry, professor at the Collège de France, Georges Gonthier has been exploring the field of computer verification of mathematical theorems. After having worked for the Inria Rocquencourt centre, the Microsoft research laboratory in Cambridge and taken part in the creation of the joint Inria - Microsoft-Research laboratory, Georges Gonthier is joining the SPECFUN team at the Inria Saclay – Île-de-France centre in order to continue his research projects and get back together with the teams with which he has been working for several years.

Reconstructing an incomplete image in real time: the challenge of the GECO team. Ugo Boscain and the GECO team from the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre are using geometric control theory for the reconstruction of images. Their ambition: to propose a technological solution to enable the real-time reconstruction of a photo. The European Research Council (ERC) has just awarded the researcher with a "Proof of concept" grant, which will enable him to add value to this research.
At the UIST2016 (User Interface Software and Technology) conference that took place in Tokyo from 16 - 19 October 2016, Mathieu Le Goc, PhD student with the AVIZ team at the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, presented a new man-machine interface mode comprising several autonomous mini-robots that manage display and interaction. On this occasion, he received the best paper award.
Specialised in the analysis of brain images, Gaël Varoquaux is a member of the Parietal team at the Inria Saclay – Île-de-France research centre. On 29 September 2016, he was the guest at a "Unithé ou café" meeting organised by Saclay centre.
European Research Council 2015
Last spring Michel Beaudouin-Lafon, member of EX-SITU, a joint LRI and Inria Saclay Île-de-France centre team, received an ERC Advanced Grant for his ONE project. The aim of the project is to fundamentally rethink the basic principles and the conceptual model of interactive systems, in order to enable users to take ownership of their digital environment. The project begins on 1 October 2016 with the arrival to the team of a first PhD student. The project foresees the recruitment of five PhD students, two engineers and proposes six years of post-docs.
The Networking Networking Women Community (N2 Women) has published the list of the ten women "to watch" in the field of networking and communications (10 Women in Networking / Communications That You Should Watch). Aline Carneiro Viana, member of the INFINE team at the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, is one of these women who are very active and involved in this research community.
