Axel Hutt: a physicist peeks inside the human brain

Cécile Michaut - Technoscope - 4/11/2010

This year,  eight ERC grant winners are leaders or members of Inria teams. In the "starting grants" category, Axel Hutt (Cortex, Nancy), Paola Goatin (Opale, Sophia Antipolis), Pierre Alliez (Geometrica, Sophia Antipolis), Kartikeyan Bhargavan (Moscova, Rocquencourt), Véronique Cortier (Cassis, Nancy) and Nikos Paragios (Galen, Saclay) have received funding to form research teams. In the "advanced grants" category, Jean Ponce (Willow, Rocquencourt) and André Seznec (Alf, Rennes) are among the lucky winners and have chosen Inria as their host research institution. At a time when candidates are already submitting proposals for 2011, the 2010 winners are reminded of the road they have covered so far. This week, we will look at the work of Axel Hutt.

Karthik Bhargavan: proving the safety of web applications

Cécile Michaut - Technoscope - 23/11/2010

The medical saying "prevention is better than cure" also applies to computers. Karthik Bhargavan, a young researcher from the MOSCOVA team, recently received an ERC grant to continue his work on ensuring the safety of services such as personal and sensitive data management. This work is both theoretical and highly applied, and is carried out at the Inria and Microsoft Research joint laboratory. We went to meet this researcher.

Jean Ponce: from photo to video

Cécile Michaut - 30/11/2010

A renowned specialist in shape recognition in photos, Jean Ponce, professor at France's École Normale Supérieure, moved into the field of video a few years ago. To support his work he recently received an ERC advanced grant. His goal is to automatically analyse and process films no matter what sequences or camera movements they contain, in order to archive, modify or restore them. This work is of particular interest to video effects designers.

Pierre Alliez: a pioneer in digital geometry processing

Françoise Monfort -Technoscope - 18/11/2010

Pierre Alliez is a pioneer: when he began his research - following a Master's internship at Inria with Olivier Devillers and a PhD at France Telecom R&D and Telecom Paris Tech - the theme on which he was working still did not have a name. Today, with digital geometry processing now recognised as a scientific field, he is proposing IRON (Robust Geometry Processing), a project that earned him the prestigious ERC 2010 Grant in the "starting grants" category. We went to meet this researcher.

Pierre-Yves Oudeyer: the man who made robots curious

Pierre-Yves Oudeyer received a grant worth €1.5 million for his project. An unusual career between high-tech fundamental research and experimental applications accessible to the general public, a revival of robotics and a journey to the sources of human language. Pierre-Yves Oudeyer had some weighty plus points when he presented his project to the ERC. Through the grant obtained in autumn 2009, the head of the FLOWERS team was promoted European "scientific leader" in robotics.
