Interpreting Drawings for 3D Design (D3)

Start date: 01 Feb 2017, End date: 31 Jan 2022,

Designers draw extensively to externalize their ideas and communicate with others. However, drawings are currently not directly interpretable by computers. To test their ideas against physical reality, designers have to create 3D models suitable for simulation and 3D printing. However, the visceral and approximate nature of drawing clashes with the tediousness and rigidity of 3D modeling. As a res ...

Efficient Formally Secure Compilers to a Tagged Architecture (SECOMP)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2021,

Severe low-level vulnerabilities abound in today’s computer systems, allowing cyber-attackers to remotely gain full control. This happens in big part because our programming languages, compilers, and architectures were designed in an era of scarce hardware resources and too often trade off security for efficiency. The semantics of mainstream low-level languages like C is inherently insecure, and e ...

Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping (CoBCoM)

Start date: 01 Sep 2016, End date: 31 Aug 2021,

One third of the burden of all the diseases in Europe is due to problems caused by diseases affecting brain. Although exceptional progress has been obtained for exploring it during the past decades, the brain is still terra-incognita and calls for specic research efforts to better understand its architecture and functioning.CoBCoM is our response to this great challenge of modern science with the ...

Time-series of multimodal medical images offer a unique opportunity to track anatomical and functional alterations of the brain in aging individuals. A collection of such time series for several individuals forms a longitudinal data set, each data being a rich iconic-geometric representation of the brain anatomy and function. These data are already extraordinary complex and variable across individ ...

Computational Light fields IMaging (CLIM)

Start date: 01 Sep 2016, End date: 31 Aug 2021,

Light fields technology holds great promises in computational imaging. Light fields cameras capture light rays as they interact with physical objects in the scene. The recorded flow of rays (the light field) yields a rich description of the scene enabling advanced image creation capabilities from a single capture. This technology is expected to bring disruptive changes in computational imaging. Ho ...

The security of modern web applications depends on a variety of critical components including cryptographic libraries, Transport Layer Security (TLS), browser security mechanisms, and single sign-on protocols. Although these components are widely used, their security guarantees remain poorly understood, leading to subtle bugs and frequent attacks.Rather than fixing one attack at a time, we advocat ...

Foundations of Efficient Lattice Cryptography (FELICITY)

Start date: 01 Oct 2015, End date: 30 Sep 2020,

Public key cryptography is the backbone of internet security. Yet it is very likely that within the next few decades some government or corporate entity will succeed in building a general-purpose quantum computer that is capable of breaking all of today's public key protocols. Lattice cryptography, which appears to be resilient to quantum attacks, is currently viewed as the most promising candidat ...

Efficient use of computational resources with a reliable outcome is a definite target in numerical simulations of partial differential equations (PDEs). Although this has been an important subject of numerical analysis and scientific computing for decades, still, surprisingly, often more than 90% of the CPU time in numerical simulations is literally wasted and the accuracy of the final outcome is ...

Coq for Homotopy Type Theory (CoqHoTT)

Start date: 01 Jun 2015, End date: 31 May 2020,

Every year, software bugs cost hundreds of millions of euros to companies and administrations. Hence, software quality is a prevalent notion and interactive theorem provers based on type theory have shown their efficiency to prove correctness of important pieces of software like the C compiler of the CompCert project. One main interest of such theorem provers is the ability to extract directly th ...

Robots with animal-like resilience (ResiBots)

Start date: 01 May 2015, End date: 30 Apr 2020,

Despite over 50 years of research in robotics, most existing robots are far from being as resilient as the simplest animals: they are fragile machines that easily stop functioning in difficult conditions. The goal of this proposal is to radically change this situation by providing the algorithmic foundations for low-cost robots that can autonomously recover from unforeseen damages in a few minutes ...
