Cryptonext Security: Encryption software equal to tomorrow’s quantum computers

Mediathena – V.P. (*) - 7/10/2019

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.

With Antescofo, musicians never have to practise alone again

Mediathena - BP pour CRI de Paris (*) - 18/06/2019

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.
