Using AI to monitor movement promises to improve home care

By 2050, there will be two billion people in the world aged 60 and over, which is twice as many as in 2020 (source: WHO). In addition, there are currently 40 million people affected by severe disability. For all these people, receiving sufficient health care at home while maintaining a level of autonomy is a critical yet […]

Towards a less data and energy intensive AI

“It’s not who has the best algorithm that wins, it’s who has the most data.” This aphorism from artificial intelligence (AI) researcher Jean-Claude Heudin shows just how essential data is in machine learning. Deep learning algorithms in particular require a huge amount of annotated data (for supervised learning mode). However, data production is a long […]

The GPT-3 language model, revolution or evolution?

A new generation of language models In less than a decade, research in Natural Language Processing (NLP) has been overturned by the appearance of a suite of language models trained in an unsupervised manner on very large corpora. These models, trained to predict words, have proved capable of “capturing” the general linguistic characteristics of a […]

5 cutting-edge technologies that are changing the game

Energy: blockchain is speeding up microgrids The features of blockchain could be a lever for modernising the energy system. Blockchain enables the distributed, secure, transparent recording and storage of energy and transaction flows. It can be used to track energy consumption in real time or to have knowledge of the asset portfolios of all participants. […]

Neuroprosthetics, virtual reality, and AI tackle motor disabilities

The Clinatec research centre’s Brain Computer Interface (BCI) project “For the first time, a tetraplegic patient was able to walk and control both arms using this neuroprosthetic, which records, transmits, and decodes brain signals in real-time to control an exoskeleton”, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) proudly announced in October 2019. Developed […]

Robotics, AI and blockchain at the heart of the healthcare of tomorrow

Robotics and digital imaging fostered the development of “minimally invasive” techniques. The convergence of intensive computing and artificial intelligence (AI) is now speeding up basic and clinical medical research, and is fostering the development of healthcare that is both personalised and predictive. As for blockchain, it offers a framework that helps address the challenges brought […]

Brain-Computer Interface

A Brain-Computer Interface is a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) of a particular kind, as it provides direct communication with the human brain. Through thought, a user can thus remotely control a computer or a smart object. Freed from the chain of psychomotor reactions between the brain, the nerves, and the muscles, a BCI delivers much shorter […]

Fake news: will advances in technology help us to distinguish between true and fake?

Social networks are fertile ground for spreading lies that are knowingly presented as legitimate information. Exposing them is often simple. Critical thinking, civic-mindedness, and media education can often suffice to foil misinformers’ strategies. However, doctored videos, called deep fakes, are in certain cases more and more difficult to identify as such. These composite videos create […]

Artificial intelligence as a tool for digital inclusion

How is digital exclusion manifested today in France? Today, the phenomenon is well-known and the studies carried out on this subject describe converging tendencies. Digital exclusion concerns slightly more than 15 % of the population. It is due to several factors. First and foremost, it is territorial: 50 % of non-internet users live in municipalities of less […]

When AI assists photographers

A processor dedicated to AI On the market since 2017, Neural Processing Units (NPU) are AI dedicated chips that coexist on the same circuit as a processor, memory, a graphics chip, wireless communication modules, and sometimes sensors. Designed to speed-up artificial neural networks, NPUs make it possible to perform AI tasks much faster than traditional […]
