The autonomous car: safety hinging on a 25cm margin

Eurecom, HIGHTS, Autonomous car, H2020

Does an autonomous or semi-autonomous car really know where it is located on a map? How accurately can it position itself on the road? For the scientists who are part of the European H2020 “HIGHTS” project, intelligent transportation systems must know their position down to one quarter of a meter. …

Ocean remote sensing: solving the puzzle of missing data

Ocean Remote sensing, data, IMT Atlantique

The satellite measurements that are taken every day rely greatly on atmospheric conditions, the main cause of missing data. In a scientific publication, Ronan Fablet, a researcher at Télécom Bretagne, proposes a new method for reconstructing the temperature of the ocean surface to complete incomplete observations. This reconstructed data provides …

Simplicity theory: teaching relevance to artificial intelligences

Jean-Louis Dessalles, Claude Shannon, Simplicity theory

The simplicity theory is founded on humans’ sensitivity to variations in complexity. Something that seems overly simple suddenly becomes interesting. This concept, which was developed by Jean-Louis Dessalles from Télécom ParisTech, challenges Shannon’s probabilistic method for describing certain information. Using this new approach, he can explain events that are otherwise …
