Inria Awards 2018
In the 18th century, Angélique du Coudray laid the foundations of medical simulation by training 5,000 midwives using fabric models – and saving many lives in the process. Today, Stéphane Cotin has adopted the same approach, with resources at the cutting edge of research into numerical simulation.
François Charpillet's MAIA project team is using its research results for the development of new services to improve the safety of mobility-impaired people and victims of chronic illnesses in their homes.
Artificial intelligence in healthcare
The remarkable achievements of AI in the health sector, to give just one example, have made it a promising new field for GAFA and BATX (their Chinese competitors). Caught up in the myriad media releases and fabulous promises, there is a growing need for clarity and education. Within this context, we met with Erwan Kerrien, an IT researcher in the Magrit team, a joint undertaking of the Inria Nancy - Grand Est centre and Loria. Erwan’s work is centred around the quest for artificial intelligent images.
Philippe Preux, a researcher with the Sequel* project team at the Inria Lille center, is one of the winners of the Université de Lille Nord Europe's I-SITE EXPAND call for projects. His Bandits for Health project is among the ten EXPAND projects financed to up to €150k (including the recruitment of a PhD student).
European Research Council 2010
This year, eight ERC grant winners are leaders or members of Inria project-teams. Nikos Paragios, a teacher at the Ecole Centrale de Paris, was awarded a starting grant. Worth approximately 1,500,000 euros, this grant will allow the researcher to reinforce the GALEN team and conduct an ambitious five-year research project on artificial vision and its applications in the medical field. Here, we get to know the grant-winning scientist.
Adrien Coulet, lecturer at the Université de Lorraine and researcher in a joint team at Inria and Loria working in collaboration with researchers from Stanford University, has created an algorithm based on medical data to predict the need to prescribe a reduced dose of medication for a patient rather than a standard dose. An article about their research has been published in "Nature - Scientific Reports".
Hugues Berry was nominated Deputy Scientific Director in charge of the research field "Digital Health, Biology and Earth" in 2018.
Inria Project Labs' initiatives enable the launch of ambitious research projects directly linked with the institute. These programmes are often interdisciplinary and call on a wide range of skills. Aim: mobilising and highlighting the expertise of Inria researchers around key challenges.
