The brand new start-up Statinf, which draws on the research carried out by the Kopernic project team at Inria Paris, has made a promising technological development: they are now capable of using statistical and probabilistic approaches to evaluate the run times of so-called “critical” programmes. The resulting solutions are expected to help manufacturers to carry out temporal statistical analysis on all embedded IT systems, including those employing the use of multi-core processors.
A look back at the Rendez-vous des Jeunes Mathématiciennes et Informaticiennes event from October 2019
Monday 28th October marked the beginning of a new edition of the Rendez-vous des Jeunes Mathématiciennes et Informaticiennes event, organised at the Inria centre in Paris by the associations Animath and Femmes et Mathématiques. Over two days, it was our pleasure and privilege to welcome the 20 female school pupils from across France whose applications had been successful, and to share with them the very essence of Inria: scientific research. Let’s take a look back at those two days.
The European Commission has just announced Karthikeyan Bhargavan, a specialist in cryptographic protocols and director of research at Inria in Paris, as winner of the Horizon Impact Award. The aim of his research, carried out in the context of the Crysp and Circus projects alongside his project team Prosecco and international researchers, was to improve the security of web browsers.
The start-up Cryptonext Security was founded in June 2019 by Ludovic Perret and Jean-Charles Faugère. This spin-off from Inria and the Sorbonne markets software programs capable of withstanding the next big security threat – the phenomenal computational power of quantum computers, which will easily break most cryptographic codes currently in use. The company’s B2B software aims to become an indispensable cybersecurity tool.
Founded in 2016 to offer an ambitious application for real-time analysis of air and noise pollution, the start-up came across some unexpected opportunities in the world of sports two years later. It will now focus on collecting information to analyse the “fan experience”.
It was within Inria’s Eva team that a high-performance wireless communication technology was developed. This technology has since been deployed by Wattson Elements, which uses it in the pleasure boat industry. With support from Inria, it has developed a platform around this technology, dubbed Falco, which offers new services to port managers and amateur sailors alike. Interview with Elsa Nicol, chief executive at Wattson Elements.
Set up in 2016 by three researchers from an Inria-Ircam*-CNRS team, Antescofo provides classical musicians with the opportunity to practise using an application that plays the orchestral accompaniment in high-quality sound and adjusts in real time to any errors they make. The start-up, supported by Inria, is backed by prestigious investors. It is planning a large-scale commercial launch at the end of 2019.
Built on cooperation between researchers in biological fluid dynamics, mathematical modelling specialists and doctors, the Reo project team came to an end in December 2018. This is an opportunity to look back on the research into congenital heart diseases and liver surgery that Irène Vignon-Clémentel, senior researcher at Inria Paris, conducted over more than 12 years in that multidisciplinary team.

Set up following the SmartMarinaproject, led by the Eva team at the Inria Paris centre, the start-up Wattson Elements has unveiled technology capable of remotely monitoring boats moored in marinas. The goal of this solution, given the name Falco, was to improve marina management and security while promoting the development of new services targeted at boat owners.
In mid-January Inria published its white paper on cybersecurity, highlighting 5 scientific challenges that need to be met for the future. High on the list is the security of cryptographic protocols. This is precisely the playing field of the Prosecco team (Inria Paris).
