Interdisciplinary research

MissingBigData: getting mathematics and computer science to work together for a better solution to the missing data problem

Charlotte Renauld and Carole Céard - 28/06/2018

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 .

High-resolution imaging maps the human brain to create an atlas of cerebral cognitive functions

Magalie Quet - 15/06/2018

Within the framework of the Human Brain Project [1], researchers from the Parietal team are actively taking part in the multidisciplinary collaborative project [2] entitled Individual Brain Charting, which consists in creating a precise macroscopic map of the cognitive functions of the human brain. The ultimate aim of the acquisition of functional MRI data during the performance of behavioural tasks is to develop a veritable functional brain atlas. On 12 June, the international scientific journal Scientific Data , by the Nature group, published an article on this major project.


Results of call for proposal

At least three projects involving the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre selected by the DATAIA Institute

Carole Céard - 31/05/2018

As part of its 2018 call for projects, the DATAIA Convergence Institute has selected GDP-ERE and MissingBigData, two projects led respectively by the Petrus and Parietal teams from the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, in collaboration with the university of Versailles Saint-Quentin in the Yvelines department and the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research).
