Since 2017, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has organised an international competition to standardise post-quantum cryptographic algorithms. Of the 26 submissions chosen as finalists, 7 are the fruit of research by Inria project teams. Anne Canteaut, head of the SECRET project team, talks to us about the objectives and challenges.
Paris-based company 5th Dimension is about to launch innovative glasses whose legs sport an audio device capable of filtering undesired background noise, improving the quality of a sound of interest and conveying it directly to the inner ear. The feat is made possible by a combo of technologies including two cutting-edge signal processing algorithms provided by Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France.

Christine Guillemot, director of research at Inria and head of SIROCCO research project team, will receive in september during the international conference EUSIPCO 2019, the 2019 Eurasip Technical Achievement Award. Each year, this award honors a scientist who, over a period of years, has made outstanding technical contributions to theory or practice in technical areas within the scope of the Society, as demonstrated by publications, patents, or recognized impact in this field. Christine Guillemot is rewarded for her contributions to video processing for compression and inverse problems.
Viva Technology is a global event bringing start-ups and leaders together to celebrate innovation. This is also the theme chosen by Inria for this year’s event, bringing to the fore start-ups that began life within the institute, participating in workshops in partnership with French Tech and with a “Doctoral pathway” on the theme of company creation.
When we hear the term“blockchain”, we automatically think of bitcoin or other virtual currencies, but the use of blockchains is not limited to these transactions. As a joint contribution to this promising innovation, Capgemini and École Polytechnique are to set up the chair“Blockchain & B2B Platforms”.The goal is to improve the IT technology on which these blockchains are based, to assess the corresponding economic transformations and to prepare future applications. Daniel Augot, Inria research director, will be one of the scheme’s coordinators, alongside the CNRS researcher Julien Prat.
For its 11th edition, the International School of Rewriting is set to return to France.
From 1st to 6th July 2019, Inria and MINES ParisTech will be giving students and researchers the chance to learn how to use the basic tools of this computational model and to discover its wide range of possible uses.
Dans le cadre du programme national pour l’intelligence artificielle (IA), l’État a décidé de soutenir la constitution d’un réseau composé d’un petit nombre d’Instituts Interdisciplinaires d’Intelligence Artificielle (3IA) avec lesquels l’ensemble du potentiel français en IA aura vocation à interagir. Après audition par un jury international, les résultats définitifs de l’appel à manifestation d’intérêt 3IA ont été rendus publics ce mercredi 24 avril 2019 par la ministre de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation, Frédérique Vidal et le secrétaire d'État chargé du Numérique, Cédric O. Les projets des sites de Grenoble « MIAI@Grenoble-Alpes », de Nice-Sophia Antipolis « 3IA Côte d'Azur », de Paris « PRAIRIE» et de Toulouse « ANITI » ont été retenus. Inria participe donc à trois des quatre projets retenus.
AI and defence
The Minister of the Armed Forces makes artificial intelligence a strategic national defence priority
On Friday 5th April, the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France research centre welcomed the visit of Ms Florence Parly, Minister of the Armed Forces, as she unveiled the ministry's strategy in relation to artificial intelligence. Bruno Sportisse, CEO and managing director of Inria, Jean-Yves Berthou, director of the centre, and Bertrand Thirion, interim director of the Institut de Convergences DATAIA, introduced them to examples of the latest technology developed by partner members of the institute.
Internet des Objets
Emmanuel Baccelli and Alexandre Abadie, members of the Inria team Infine will be giving a demonstration of the RIOT operating system at SIDO (Salon de l’internet des objets) on 10th and 11th April 2019. This open source operating system designed for the internet of things (IoT), which boasts an ever-growing community of users, saw the launch of its first commercial applications last year.
