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.

Reinventing Digital Cash

Jean-Michel Prima - 27/11/2015

Freshly recruited by Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, German scientist Christian Grothoff is to lead a new team that will design innovative network protocols meant to build a decentralised, secure and privacy-preserving communication infrastructure. In that context, one of his goals is to give the world a new and heavily-encrypted payment system that would protect customer's identity while enabling governments to collect taxes. As he explains, TALER has potential for sustaining a more socially-respectable economy.

Fifty shades of soft robots!

Christian Duriez - 10/11/2015

On the 28th of May, the French blog "Binaire - l'informatique - la science au cœur du numérique" published an article by Christian Duriez, manager of the Inria Lille - Nord Europe Defrost research team. The article focused on the main research interest of this team : deformable robotics. Citing parallels with the newly-released Disney film, Big Hero 6 , Christian Duriez helps us to understand whether the soft robot Baymax is solely a work of fiction, or whether it is based on real soft robot research. The article has been published jointly with )i(nterstices, an online scientific journal, created by researchers with the aim of bringing computer science to a wider public.

Fingerprinting

Smile, you’re being watched!

9/11/2015

Fingerprinting makes it possible to secretly collect data from net surfers that makes it possible to identify them. This is known as “fingerprinting”. The process is as effective as it is hard to detect. Two Inria teams, based inRennes and Lille,are seeking to exposethis potential menace to privacy.
