Serge Abiteboul: Webdam, improved web data management

The database theory on which data management systems are based is not appropriate for the web. Within his Webdam project, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) since December 2008, Serge Abiteboul proposes developing suitable mathematical foundations with, as the outcome, better quality of service and improved performance.

Olivier Faugeras: Nervi, modelling visual perception

Fully in line with the research conducted with his ODYSSÉE team, Olivier Faugeras has launched a sizeable project, called NERVI, the aim of which is to build a mathematical theory of how human visual perception works and confirm it with conventional brain imaging tools.

Rémi Abgrall: Addecco, radically changing models in dynamics

Simplifying numerical computation models such as simulations of aerodynamic phenomena used in the aeronautics, automotive or indeed aerospace industries is the objective for Rémi Abgrall, who has obtained a grant from the European Research Council to test new numerical methods within his ADDECCO project.

Bruno Lévy: Goodshape, optimising sampling

Using optimised computer representation of 3D objects, able to adapt over time, Bruno Lévy expects to improve the accuracy of digital simulations. The spin-off benefits affect computer graphic design and certain fields making good use of digital simulations.

Anne-Marie Kermarrec: large-scale dynamic distributed systems

"As scalable as possible"… Beyond the pun on the well-known English term, the ASAP project team has some ambitious targets. The aim is no less than the design of algorithmic foundations making it possible to build, in an entirely decentralised way, taking account of the "uncertainty" inherent in contemporary distributed systems, large-scale distributed applications involving a large number of geographically separate and potentially mobile components. And this is to be done….as soon as possible, naturally!
