GECO: software to make images whole again

27/10/2016

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.

Launch of the ONE project "One is Not Enough": meeting with Michel Beaudouin-Lafon

Charlotte Renauld - 3/10/2016

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.
