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.

The principle behind diffusion imaging and tractography is exploring how water spreads through our brain in order to study the structure of neurons. Doctors can use this method to improve their understanding of brain disease. Pietro Gori, a researcher in image processing at Télécom ParisTech, has just launched a project called Neural Meta Tracts, funded by the Emergence program at DigiCosme.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin only have value if all the participants in the monetary system view it to as currency. It must therefore be rare, in the sense that it must not be easily copied (a problem equivalent to counterfeit banknotes for traditional currencies). This is a requirement that is met by the Bitcoin network, which ensures no double-spending occurs. In addition to the value linked to the acceptance of the currency, Bitcoins owes its value to a variety of economic mechanisms linked to the analysis of the Bitcoins’ supply and demand.

While 4G is still being rolled out, 5G is already in the starting blocks. For consumers whose smartphones still show “3G” alongside a reception indicator which rarely makes it over two bars out of four, this can be quite perplexing. Is it realistic to assure them that 5G is already a reality, when they can barely see proof of 4G? It is.

Protecting cars from cyber-attacks is an increasingly important concern in developing smart vehicles. As these vehicles become more complex, the number of potential hacks and constraints on protection algorithms is growing. Following the example of the “Connected cars and cybersecurity” chair launched by Télécom ParisTech on October 5, research is being carried out to address this problem. Scientists intend to take on these challenges, which are crucial to the development of autonomous cars.

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 ]
