Hervé Rivano is head of the Agora team, at the Inria centre in Grenoble. His field of study: autonomous networks in an urban context. As the institute celebrates its 50 years, he gives us his vision of the future of this subject.
Researcher with the NeCS team, Maria Laura Delle Monache has just been awarded the "France-Berkeley Fund award for high-achieving younger researchers", along with Samitha Samaranayake (Cornell University, PhD UC Berkeley). The prestigious American university is thereby rewarding the researcher's commitment to forging links between France and the United States.
On 23 May 2017, Absise, the Social Landlords Association of Isère, and Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes are holding a day of meetings between researchers, social landlords and start-ups on the topic of "Smart homes and innovation in social housing". The aim: to create new synergies between the worlds of research, innovation and social housing in order to develop the social housing of the future: connected, smart, energy-efficient and adapted to consumer needs.
Internet Of Things
For a few months now, James Crowley, Professor at Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP), has been in charge of the new Pervasive Interaction team that develops theories for systems and services made of assembled smart objects. In honour of Inria's 50th anniversary, he is studying the future of connected objects.
The inauguration of Espace LOGIN at Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes took place on 2 and 3 May 2017. This area of discovery, demonstrations and exchanges on the digital sciences is now open for guided and individual visits, from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5.30 pm.
A former Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes research student with the nano-D team, Maël Bosson has created a company to develop the connected and "smart" electric bike; he was also one of the first daily users of the electric bike in 2011, during his PhD.
How can disinformation - "fake news" - be traced? What are the sources of production? What are the levers of circulation and reception of disinformation on the Web and on digital platforms? This is a study topic for the Public Data Lab, an interdisciplinary network of researchers, which has just published its first results - a guide to disinformation - during the International Journalism Festival, an event that brings together thousands of journalists from Europe and the rest of the world and which took place in Perugia, Italy.
In the context of the ANR veRTIGE project, Fabrice Neyret of Inria’s Maverick team participated to the creation of a solution to take people on an interactive tour through the Milky Way with high visual quality. Combining computer sciences, 3D sciences and astrophysics, the project took no less than four years to complete. This unique system has now been installed in planetariums all around the world.
