This video presents an application and its underlying algorithms to enable an AR.Drone 2.0 to automatically follow people. It was developed as a semester project at EURECOM.
We do insist on the fact that the drone is NOT remotely controlled, and is thus flying completely autonomously.

Cisco predicts a 64x increase of the Internet traffic from 2005 to 2019. Fortunately, a large part of this traffic is represented by a limited subset of popular objects transmitted many times. This redundancy can be exploited by network caching, which reduces the bandwidth requirements by replicating content across the network.

Confidential Communications and Quantum Physics

Quantum physics opens up a variety of possibilities for radical new applications such as quantum cryptography, a discipline to which Romain Alléaume, researcher at Télécom ParisTech / Institut Mines-Télécom, devotes his energy. Member of the Quantum Information team at Télécom ParisTech, the researcher uses specifically quantum properties of light to design and create systems allowing confidential data to be remotely transmitted. His most recent work addresses the security of these quantum devices as well as their compatibility with ‘traditional’ telecommunications networks. More on Institut Mines-Telecom website

High definition 3D graphics at your fingertips

Tamy BoubekeurIt’s an old dream in the process of becoming reality: the first "3D cameras", allowing you to adjust the angle long after taking the shot, are finally emerging from laboratories. Expectations are huge from professionals in cinema, computer-aided design and computer games. But the technology is not yet fully mature: the data obtained is so large that it is impossible to exploit directly in existing applications. Research teams from Institut Mines-Télécom, including the Télécom ParisTech-based Computer Graphics group led by Tamy Boubekeur, are working to tackle this issue. The researchers are developing innovative tools, capable of processing raw data to obtain new types of media. [More on Institut Mines-Telecom website ]

Embodied conversational agents

Catherine PelachaudToday we use information technology, tomorrow we’ll use robots… machines of all kinds are an integral part of our daily life. Yet, exchange between machines and us, the users, can sometimes be challenging. How can one communicate naturally with a robot, a computer or an IT program? Herein lies the purpose of the embodied conversational agent, an interface allowing for a genuine dialogue between man and machine. Institut Mines-Télécom has been carrying out research in this field, which straddles the domains of cognitive science and artificial intelligence, observing human-human communication in view to model human-agent communication. At Télécom ParisTech, Catherine Pelachaud has been working for several years to humanize machines… [More on Institut Mines-Telecom website ]
