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.

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.

Smartly Segmenting TV For VOD

Jean-Michel Prima - 18/07/2012

It looks like a well-polished on-the-shelf HTML5 application. “But keep in mind that TexMix is actually a scientific demonstrator!  warns research engineer Sébastien Campion. Our main goal was to gather and display the various findings of our research team. So we essentially packed into a single piece of software all these algorithms that TexMex scientists came up with in recent years. A lot of this research was financed through the Quæro European project.”
