André Danzin, who directed INRIA during its period of inception between 1972 and 1980, died on Monday 19 September. He was among the founders of the Institute, with a consuming interest in the industrial application of research and technology transfer.
Inria joins OpenMP ARB to take up one of the major challenges of the Exascale era: parallel language standardisation
On 22 July 2016 Inria joined the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (OpenMP ARB), an association of 28 manufacturers, software publishers and research bodies, all leaders in their field, to collaborate in the design of a standard parallel programming model using shared memory.
How can we best gauge, explore and anticipate the social impacts of the massive digital advances of our time? The Inria monitoring and forecasting cell has risen to the challenge in a white paper devoted to artificial intelligence, a policy document that provides a wide-ranging introduction to the issues raised by the progress of research in the field of AI.
On 8 October, Jérôme Parent will be competing in an exceptional cycle race.
Paraplegic for the last 21 years, he is regaining the use of his legs thanks to electrostimulation.
A close-knit team of Inria robotics researchers - but also a doctor and a physiotherapist - will be by his side.
He will take part in the Cybathlon in Zurich, a sporting competition between disabled sportsmen and women helped by new assistance technologies.
One of the six disciplines is electrical stimulation pedalling.
European Research Council 2016
Adrien Bousseau is a research officer with the GRAPHDECO project team at Inria Sophia Antipolis-Méditerranée. A specialist in digital imaging, in 2011 he received one of the three Eurographics best thesis prizes. His project on "the interpretation of drawings for 3D design" has just enabled him to obtain a grant in the Starting Research Position category, a panel awarded by the European Research Council (ERC). Meeting with the new prize-winner, who tells us about his background and plans.

European Research Council 2015
Carlos Canudas-de-Wit has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant 2015. This award will enable him to expand his research in the control of large scale complex systems.
Over the last eleven years, Inria and INRA have continuously renewed their partnership: the fourth framework agreement, signed in June 2016, confirms the collaboration between the two institutions through joint research teams and scientific projects.
As recipient of the "GPU Partnership Program" of Facebook AI Research (FAIR), THOTH research team, conducted by Cordelia Schmid, reinforces its collaboration with Facebook to speed-up their research on large-scale machine learning and computer vision.
The Prosecco and Secret project teams demonstrate the vulnerability of certain Internet security protocols
The highlighted flaw, concerning major Internet security protocols - notably OpenVPN and TLS - was already known from a theoretical point of view, but two Inria researchers, Karthik Bhargavan (PROSECCO project team) and Gaëtan Leurent (SECRET project team) have just demonstrated that an attack where it is used as a point of entry is indeed possible.
