Voiron, not far from Grenoble, is where top athletes from France’s Olympic rock-climbing centre go to train. We met up with Lionel Reveret, an Inria researcher who provides these athletes with technical and scientific support.
Inria and the SME Touti Terre have been working together since 2015 to develop Toutilo, a multipurpose crop-straddling cobot. The aim? To bring digital and other new technologies into the world of market gardening. And to make the work less arduous whilst at the same time increasing productivity. Mission partially accomplished already, and the research continues so that Toutilo can help farmers carry out - and plan - their daily tasks.
Handling proteins, strands of DNA and carbon nanotubes at a nanometric level in order to create medications, materials or nanosystems ? This is now possible, thanks to the SAMSON platform developed by OneAngstrom, a young start-up with its foundations in ten years’ worth of Inria research. It already has more than 2,000 users in research centres and companies across the world.
An interview with Claude Castelluccia and Daniel Le Métayer (Inria - PRIVATICS) on the report that they recently presented to the European Parliament (at the request of the STOA - Science and Technology Options Assessment) on the risks and opportunities involved with decision support algorithms.
The work carried out by our two researchers is also set against the backdrop of the recent launch of the 3IA Institutes in France, and the desire on the part of the French government to strengthen initiatives within the “AI for humanity” programme.

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.
