In joining forces, they aim to revolutionise the world of Occupational Health thanks to their Numii® project, developed to improve the detection and analysis of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). We met the two men behind the project - not only do they think alike, their names are rather similar too: David Daney, researcher at INRIA and AUCTUS team leader, and Cyril Dané, CEO of AIO.
Length of hospitalization, care protocols, examination results, and transfer of records between doctors...French hospitals generate a significant amount of data. Knowing how to process and analyze them could enable an optimization of the patients' care. This is precisely the aim of the ANR ClinMine project, in which, notably, members of the Modal 1 project team from the Inria Lille - Nord Europe center have taken part.
Scientific culture: Inria is at the Palais de la Découverte with an area dedicated to digital technology
On 13 March, the Palais de la Découverte will open its new permanent exhibition on computer science and the digital sciences.Organised in partnership with Inria, it offers a panoramic view of these disciplines. Vincent Blech, museographer for Universcience, and Laurent Viennot, research director at the Inria centre in Paris and scientific curator, tell us how the project came together.
On 19 February, Inria and French Tech inaugurated their partnership within French Tech Central in the presence of Guillaume Boudy, Secretary-General for Investments, Mounir Mahjoubi, Secretary of State for Digital Affairs, and Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
With the advance of robotics, a variety of service bots will soon be trundling and treading the public spaces among people going about their daily occupations. Making navigation through human tides safe and smooth is the purpose of Crowdbot, a European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program. As project coordinator Julien Pettré points out, this research places a strong emphasis on ethics.
Gang Zheng, a researcher with the Defrost* project team at the Inria Lille center, is one of the winners of the Université de Lille Nord Europe's I-SITE EXPAND 2017 call for projects. His soft robotics projects is among the eight EXPAND projects financed to up to €200k (including the recruitment of a PhD student). These calls for projects were launched with the support of the MEL (Métropole Européenne de Lille) and the collaboration of SATT Nord, the French technology transfer accelerator company.
Barely four months after the introduction of Metronaut, its first mobile application, Antescofo, a startup spun off from Inria’s Paris research centre, is one of the five finalists in the Entertainment and Content Technologies category of SXSW’s Accelerator Pitch Event. What is Metronaut’s goal? Making artificial intelligence available to musicians so they never have to play alone.
The start-up Deepomatic, which develops a visual recognition solution, is joining the AI Factory programme - as revealed on Tuesday by Microsoft France during the presentation of its 2018 roadmap. The role of Microsoft AI Factory is to stimulate the emergence of French champions of artificial intelligence.
The CNIL (French Data Protection Authority) and Inria have awarded the 2017 "privacy protection" Prize to a European research team. During the 11th international conference Computers Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) to Seda GÜRSES, Carmela TRONCOSO and Claudia DIAZ for their article « Engineering privacy by design reloaded ».
