Biological Networks Entropies: examples in neural, genetic and social networks
24 mai 2018

Série de conférences mensuelles, le Colloquium Jacques Morgenstern expose les recherches les plus actives et les plus prometteuses dans le domaine des Sciences et Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (STIC).

Les orateurs, français ou étrangers, sont des personnalités de premier plan, informaticiens, mathématiciens ou spécialistes de domaines où l'informatique est appelée à jouer un rôle majeur.

Les exposés couvrent une problématique suffisamment large pour intéresser tous les chercheurs, ingénieurs et étudiants concernés par l’avenir des STIC.

Le colloquium porte le nom de Jacques Morgenstern, professeur de mathématiques à l'Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis, spécialiste de la théorie de la complexité algébrique et l’un des pionniers du calcul formel. Il a dirigé jusqu’à son décès tragique en 1994 une équipe commune à l’Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis, Inria et le CNRS.

Le colloquium est un élément de la formation de l’Ecole Doctorale STIC.

Nicolas Schabanel – Folding Turing is hard but feasible

February 6th, 2018 We introduce and study the computational power of Oritatami, a theoretical model to explore greedy molecular folding, by which the molecule begins to fold before waiting the end of its production. This model is inspired by our recent experimental work demonstrating the construction of shapes at the nanoscale...

Franck Varenne – An extensionalist analysis of computer simulations

January 11th, 2018 The current spreading of multi-scale and multi-process integrative simulations is challenging for the philosophy of science. What is the epistemic function of such a simulation? What does it really show? On what grounds? Is it an experimental design or a theoretical construction? To contribute to these debates,...

Julia Lawall – Coccinelle: synergy between programming language research and the Linux kernel

November 23rd, 2017 The Linux kernel underlies all kinds of systems across the computing landscape, from embedded systems to supercomputers. Today, the number of developers contributing to a given Linux kernel version is almost 2000. These range from developers who have many years of experience and work on core parts...

Marta Kwiatkowska – Safety Verification of Deep Neural Networks

October 19th, 2017 Deep neural networks have achieved impressive experimental results in image classification, but can surprisingly be unstable with respect to adversarial perturbations, that is, minimal changes to the input image that cause the network to misclassify it. With potential applications including perception modules and end-to-end controllers for self-driving...

Richard Szeliski – Visual Reconstruction and Image-Based Rendering

September 12th 2017 The reconstruction of 3D scenes and their appearance from imagery is one of the longest-standing problems in computer vision. Originally developed to support robotics and artificial intelligence applications, it has found some of its most widespread use in the support of interactive 3D scene visualization. One of...

Lawrence Paulson – Proof Assistants: From symbolic logic to real mathematics?

May 18th, 2017 Mathematicians have always been prone to error. As proofs get longer and more complicated, the question of correctness looms ever larger. Andrew Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s last theorem contained a flaw that was only fixed a year later. Meanwhile, proof assistants — formal tools originally developed in...

Jean-Christophe Thalabard – Mathématiques, Statistiques et Médecine: des collaborations plus que jamais nécessaires

jeudi 6 avril 2017 A travers le paradigme d’une maladie chronique fréquente, le cancer du sein, nous souhaitons aborder les évolutions de formes de collaborations entre le domaine médical et les chercheurs en mathématiques appliquées. La capacité à observer et quantifier les états physiologiques et pathologiques et approcher leurs variabilités...

Valérie Berthé – Numbers, computers and dynamical systems

March 9, 2017 A discrete dynamical system is defined as a set of states on which a transformation acts, considered as an evolution rule. The terminology discrete refers to the time that is discretized: at time n corresponds the nth iteration of this transformation. Dynamical systems are widely studied, for...
