Simulating Large-Scale Distributed Systems

Jean-Michel Prima - 18/04/2017

Supported by French research institute Inria, SimGrid is an open source tool for the simulation of distributed systems. Over the last 15 years, it has become a staple in more than one scientific community across the globe, contributing to performance optimization in many contexts. The next challenge is to help SimGrid reach the industry, an effort for which Inria is about to start a two-year Technical Action, as project coordinator Martin Quinson explains.

Secure electronic documents: is the centralisation of biometric data really inevitable?

Laurence Goussu - 15/02/2017

The decree of 28 October 2016 authorising the creation of a centralised file of "secure electronic documents" (TES) has raised a certain number of questions and concerns. The main aim put forward by the French government is the fight against identity fraud. However, the text of the decree also authorises certain accesses to the database by officers of the national police, national Gendarmerie and intelligence. Many voices have been raised to highlight the risks that such a centralised file could represent with regard to individual freedom, and particularly the invasion of citizens' privacy. Here, Inria gives its objective analysis and its recommendations in order to ensure the protection of privacy.

TransAlgo: assessing the accountability and transparency of algorithmic systems

7/02/2017

When I am searching for an itinerary on my smartphone via my favourite application, how do I know that the algorithm used is not resorting to commercial criteria in order to make me go through commercial points of interest? The aim of the TransAlgo project is to shed light on these types of practices when they are not made explicit; a project that has just awarded to Inria by Axelle Lemaire in the context of the French Law for a Digital Republic. How can methods that make it possible to verify if a decision is taken based on unacceptable criteria be developed? Nozha Boujemaa, who has been tasked with this major work, responds.

Using Statistics to Pierce the Mysteries of the Brain

15/03/2016

Nearly 100,000 billion neurons, each typically having 10,000 synapses and an almost infinite number of possible connections: grey matter is, in itself, a formidable mathematical object. At theInstitut du cerveau et de la moelle épinière(the Brain and Spinal Cord Institute),the researchers of the Aramis project team, using statistics and image analysis, work with doctors to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of pathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease.
