AllegoRI: 3D science and technology and computer graphics, with Allegorithmic – Joint laboratory with ANR
The objective of the AllegoRI joint laboratory (LabCom (Joint Lab) ANR) is to initiate a joint research project on 3D sciences and technologies between Télécom Paris’s computer graphics team and the Allegorithmic firm. This project aims to improve 3D content creation methods which play a major role in the creative industry and in emerging media, such as video games, virtual reality, digital manufacturing and the 3D web, by combining Télécom Paris’s scientific expertise with the industrial expertise of Allegorithmic.
Bibli-Lab: uses of libraries’ digital heritage, with the French National Library (BNF)
Online uses of digitized holdings is an important area of study for the BnF (the National Library of France), as it is committed to adapting its offerings in this field and to understanding how such offerings may be appropriated. In order to ensure strong scientific coherence in this field of study, the BnF has partnered with Télécom Paris to found Bibli-Lab, a laboratory for studying the uses of libraries’ digital heritage.
This partnership comprises application agreements and comes as a response to national and international calls for projects.
Exalt Design Lab: promoting design in companies
Strate School of Design, Télécom Paris and Ecole Polytechnique, with the support of Carrefour, OTIS, MAIF, InProcess and EMAKINA, have created the EXALT Design Lab, the first joint research laboratory dedicated to promoting design in companies,.
The EXALT Design Lab research project is devoted to working with corporate partners on solutions for making design a central part of their strategic planning, in order to anticipate and respond more effectively to the complexity of markets and to a changing society. Faced with a complex and uncertain world, design is now a discipline (and a career) that helps support the transformations companies must undergo in order to meet the requirements of attractiveness, competitiveness and the search for meaning.
ISA: Identity & Security Alliance, with Morpho (Safran)
Morpho, a subsidiary of the SAFRAN group, is the world’s leading biometric security company. It has regularly worked on joint research projects with the school for several years, and a researcher from the company is based at Télécom Paris.
Morpho and Télécom Paris have decided to anchor this collaboration by setting up a joint laboratory: “IDentity & Security Alliance (The Morpho and Telecom ParisTech Research Center),” which was launched in March 2011. The laboratory works on topics in different fields related to security and identity, such as IT security and cryptography, components security, identity management systems etc.
“The aim is to unlock the potential for applications in the field of secure identity management in its broadest sense. We feel that today, as citizens, individuals and members of an organization, our identity, and the rights pertaining to it are crucial to the functioning of modern society: the right to vote, the right to open a bank account, as well as the right to consume online services as anonymously as possible, but under conditions that ensure the security of all parties. This laboratory seeks to build a scientific knowledge base to support these next-generation applications,” explains Gérard Memmi, head of the Network and Computer Science department at Télécom Paris and Vincent Bouatou, Director of External Research at Morpho.
Lincs: Internet of the future, with Nokia, Inria, UPMC and SystemX
The LINCS laboratory – Laboratory for Information, Networking and Communication Sciences, a joint research laboratory for the Internet of the future, was created in October 2010 by Nokia, Inria, UPMC and Télécom Paris and officially launched in May 2011. SystemX Institute of Research and Technology has since joined the laboratory.
Seido: security for the Internet of Things, with EDF R&D
EDF R&D and Telecom ParisTech are creating a Joint Research Laboratory, called the “SEIDO Laboratory,” devoted to the Internet of Things and cybersecurity for electrical systems.
Its purpose is to prepare for and facilitate the deployment of energy demand management services based on the interoperability of appliances (heaters, air conditioners, white and brown goods, electric vehicles etc.) to help ensure the coherence, efficiency and safety (security, privacy etc.) of the entire system.
This laboratory brings together specialists from a wide range of disciplinary fields (security, networks, the internet, the energy industry, electrical networks etc.) around common industrial aims.
TTool: 5G, the next major phase in the evolution of mobile communication standards, with Nokia
The fifth generation of mobile networks (5G) defines the next major phase in the evolution of mobile telecommunication standards. As indicated by leading telecommunications stakeholders in the Next Generation Mobile Networks alliance, 5G should provide faster data speeds and meet new use requirements, such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing. In order to support a large number of different communication protocols in a flexible way, electronic systems (platforms) for a fifth generation network will be developed, in particular with reprogrammable architectures.
The main objective of this collaboration between Nokia Bell Labs and Télécom Paris is therefore to develop new programming techniques and algorithms based on high-level models that allow engineers to distance themselves from the complexity of these platforms and to quickly (re)program/reconfigure them. These techniques and algorithms will be integrated and made available in the computer-aided design tool TTool/Diplodocus (free license).
Valeo.IA: artificial intelligence for autonomous vehicles, with CEA, Inria, Mines ParisTech and Valeo
First research center opened on artificial intelligence and deep learning for automobiles (125 Ko)
Whist Lab: Wave Human Interactions and Telecommunications, with Orange Labs
In light of their specific research objectives and the current scientific environment, Institut Mines-Télécom and Orange Labs have decided to reinforce their shared research capabilities in the field of electromagnetism applied to dosimetry and wave-human interactions to help research teams harmonize their research and innovation activities based on jointly-identified areas of research:
- Electromagnetism and digital methods for dosimetry, human-wave interactions and BAN communications
- Electromagnetism for new Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI)
- Adaptation and development of methods and experimental tools applied to measurements and sensors related to human-wave interactions
- 3D image processing, development of anatomic models for modeling human-wave interactions
- Assessment of interactions between humans and radio-frequency waves
This partnership takes the form of a joint research laboratory, called WHIST LAB.
