Produced and presented every five years, the Inria Scientific strategic plan reveals the impending main lines of research and the scientific ambitions of the institute over the coming years. In particular, it highlights several issues at the heart of Inria's concerns, such as the next generation of computer systems, augmented intelligence, the question of trust in a connected world, the understanding of natural processes and, more generally, aims to put humans back at the centre of digital technologies.
Learning how to code by creating robots: this is the promise of Pollen Robotics, the start-up originating from the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest research centre. In order to democratise the digital sciences, Pollen Robotics designs robots that enable an understanding of programming and artificial intelligence in a fun and interactive way.
The third edition of the CNIL-INRIA "Privacy Protection" Prize starts on 16 May 2018. It will reward a scientific paper on privacy and personal data protection published in 2016-2017.
It is with great sadness that Inria learned that Michel Combarnous had passed away on Thursday 10 May, at the age of 77. A renowned professor of mechanics and energetics, and member of the French Académie des sciences, he presided over the Inria Scientific Council from 1996 to 1998. He was president of the University of Bordeaux 1 from 1996 to 2001.
Defrost* project-team has participated at the international IEEE-RAS Robosoft 2018 conference. Defrost manipulator received the second place award for the manipulation challenge.
The Android galaxy is plagued with a host of fake apps solely devised to rob smartphone users of their ID, their data or their money. Studying this type of infection vector, a group of French scientists is coming up with a string of innovative test and visualization tools meant to help security analysts investigate suspicious software, explore its inner-structure, force sleeping code out of dormancy and produce an intuitive graph representation of what the malware is really up to.

In an automated factory, each equipment or machinery must meet a myriad of constraints. Ensuring that an entire factory chain satisfies these constraints and safety and security regulations requires simulation, test and verification. However, what can be proved when two heterogeneous components, e.g. mechanics and software, interact with each other? How can one prove that this hybrid aggregate also meets common, global, requirements such as, e.g. latency? Such is the question at the crux of a collaboration between Inria and Mitsubishi Electric R&D Centre Europe, two entities located on the same campus, in Rennes, Brittany, France.
