Of the 16 project teams at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe center, nine have research projects linked to artificial intelligence, either directly or indirectly. Here is an overview of the Inria Lille forces in AI.
Groupe PSA and Inria create an OpenLab dedicated to artificial intelligence which main challenge will be to increase efficiency and reliability of the results acquired by artificial intelligence methods for automotive applications use. A dozen topics will be covered over a 4 years period.
- Open lab
- Laboratoire commun
- Voiture autonome
- Voiture intelligente
- Véhicules connectés
- PRAIRIE institute
Just ten years ago, Manuel Davy, co-founder of the Sequel team from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research centre, launched his start-up: Vekia At the time the small company, specialised in machine learning, proposed consulting services to the major retail groups in the Lille region. Today, Vekia is developing a supply chain solution for stock management. It employs approximately 50 people, works with around 20 major retail groups and, in 2017, raised 12 million Euros in order to expand.
After Stockholm, Munich, Barcelona, Torino, Dublin, Copenhagen and Manchester, Toulouse will host ESOF for its 8th edition under the motto “Sharing Science: towards new horizons” and will become the “European City of Science 2018”. Inria will present its research and scientific mediation work throughout the week.
The Inria Lille - Nord Europe centre's Technology Transfer, Innovation and Partnerships department (STIP) encourages the creation of start-ups by raising awareness among, and providing support to, scientists wishing to venture into entrepreneurship. Laurie Barbarin has been exclusively in charge of this mission since October 2017. Lille is the first Inria centre to have set up a post dedicated to this support.
MissingBigData: getting mathematics and computer science to work together for a better solution to the missing data problem
Julie Josse, professor of statistics at the École polytechnique and researcher at the French Centre for Applied Mathematics (CNAM), and Gaël Varoquaux, Parietal team researcher at the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, have decided to combine their expertise in order to tackle, together, the problems of missing data and to propose new decision support methods. The MissingBigData project has been selected by the DATAIA Institute as part of its first call for research projects. How did this collaboration come about? What are the challenges of their interdisciplinary research? Julie and Gaël present MissingBigData .

The 9th edition of the NETVA program will support 16 innovative deeptech startups in their understanding of North American markets. Two Inria startups, InSimo and Ekinnox , are among the winners this year.
The work of Daniele Calandriello, a doctoral candidate on the Project Sequel team at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research center, has just received an award from the French Association for Artificial Intelligence (AFIA). He has developed a method by which machines retain only the essential elements of very big datasets in order to make them more independent.
The 11th Plenary Meeting of the European Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) will take place at Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée Centre
To facilitate and support the development and cross-border networking of national knowledge transfer office networks and the work of existing pan-European networks, the Commission has launched an initiative that aims at enhancing collaboration on knowledge transfer among the TTOs (Technology Transfer Offices) of large European public research organisations - the "European TTO circle".
