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.

Data collected by communicating vehicles represent a goldmine for providers of new services. But in order to buy and sell this data, economic players need a dedicated marketplace. Since 2015, the AutoMat H2020 project has been developing such an exchange platform. To achieve this mission by 2018 — the end date for the project— a viable business model will have to be defined. Researchers at Télécom Paristech, a partner in the project, are currently tackling this task.

A much more complex and less glamorous truth lies behind the storytelling of the visionary entrepreneur, the insider who has the revolutionary idea of the century. Thomas Houy, Researcher at Télécom ParisTech, breaks down the stereotypes surrounding the false image of the exceptional strategist. Following his presentation during the IMT symposium on businesses, the economy and society in November 2016, he returns to the subject of the truth of an entrepreneur who is above all closely attentive to demand and market data.

Machine learning is an area of artificial intelligence, at the interface between mathematics and computer science. It is aimed at teaching machines to complete certain tasks, often predictive, based on large amounts of data. Text, image and voice recognition technologies are also used to develop search engines and recommender systems for online retail sites. More broadly speaking, machine learning refers to a corpus of theories and statistical learning methods, which encompass deep learning. Stephan Clémençon, a researcher at Télécom ParisTech and Big Data specialist, explains the realities hidden behind these terms.

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 ]
