Waves are everywhere in our daily lives, be they light, radio, sound, seismic, gravity or on vibrating strings. As a result of this diversity, waves give rise to rich and complex propagation problems in the presence of obstacles, especially since they can propagate indefinitely. This leads to a certain number of issues: How can these phenomena be digitally simulated? How can infinite environments, even in 3D, be managed, without using too many computer resources? How can we have one general simulation tool instead of several tools devoted to specific phenomena, whilst providing high performance? At the latest Unithé ou Café, on Friday 3 February, Nicolas Kielbasiewicz, member of the Poems project team, presents his research and explains how the design of the XLiFE++ computation code makes it possible to meet the multiple requirements of researchers in wave propagation.

Inria plays a key role in the "France Intelligence Artificielle" initiative (#FranceIA) launched on 20 January by Thierry Mandon and Axelle Lemaire. The Institute's participation in the strategic committee and in several working groups confirms its position as an expert on this subject. Meeting with Bertrand Braunschweig.
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.
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.
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.
