The work of Daniele Calandriello, a doctoral candidate on the Project Sequel team at the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research center, has just received an award from the French Association for Artificial Intelligence (AFIA). He has developed a method by which machines retain only the essential elements of very big datasets in order to make them more independent.
The 9th edition of Futur.e.s (formerly Futur en Seine) takes place from 21 to 23 June 2018 in the Grande Halle of La Villette. Futur.e.s - the biggest European festival dedicated to digital innovation - has established itself as an unmissable event. This year, Inria is again participating in the festival's stated objective: to incorporate the emergence of new uses at the heart of the experience offered to the visitors.
Prix et distinction
At the end of May, Xavier Leroy, head of the Gallium project team at Inria, was appointed professor at the Collège de France for the "Software Sciences" permanent chair. This is great recognition for his scientific career, but also for the discipline he champions: fundamental computer science.
TsunamiLab was designed by José Galaz, industrial civil engineer, during a collaboration between CIGIDEN and Inria Chile. The project has three main goals: generate a useful tool for the community, create quality software and educate citizens through experimentation. José Galaz discusses the genesis and successes of the TsunamiLab, a demo of which will be presented at Futur.e.s 2018.
The TERATEC Forum, a major meeting for international experts in HPC, big data and simulation, will take place on 19 and 20 June 2018 at the École Polytechnique. Once again this year, Inria is a partner of the event, where it will present a selection of innovative technologies. Inria will also be a partner of the European Research Café, which aims to showcase European scientific projects and initiatives in these fields.
In 2017, Inria, in particular through the Software Heritage project, signed an agreement with UNESCO in favour of the preservation and sharing of software source code. Today, with the collection work continuing and increasing, UNESCO and Software Heritage are delighted to celebrate a new and crucial stage together: opening the doors of the biggest archive ever built, making the source code of tens of millions of preserved software programs accessible to all.
On 30 May 2018, Pierre-Marie Abadie, Chief Executive Officer of Andra, and François Sillion, acting CEO of Inria, signed a new partnership agreement on numerical simulation.
Results of call for proposal
At least three projects involving the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre selected by the DATAIA Institute
As part of its 2018 call for projects, the DATAIA Convergence Institute has selected GDP-ERE and MissingBigData, two projects led respectively by the Petrus and Parietal teams from the Inria Saclay - Île-de-France centre, in collaboration with the university of Versailles Saint-Quentin in the Yvelines department and the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research). The Vadore project, led by the members of the Inria team TAU for the CNRS and the graduate school ENSAE, has also been chosen, whilst the Aviz team's HistorIA project with Télécom ParisTech is on the point of selection subject to funding.
This year, the fiftieth edition of the Statistics Days is being held from Monday 28 May to Friday 1 June.The EDF Lab Paris-Saclay will host nearly 450 French and international scientists, present 16 lectures and 63 parallel sessions (including 18 special sessions), clocking up nearly 100 hours of statistics in five days!This year's edition, under the scientific leadership of Francis Bach, researcher in the Sierra team at Inria's Paris centre, is organised by Christian Derquenne, senior researcher at EDF R&D, and Pascal Massart, professor at the Université Paris-Sud.They tell us more about this event, dedicated entirely to statistics.
