Understanding the resilience of the immune system through mathematical modeling

immune system

Gaining insight into how the immune system works using mathematics is the ultimate goal of the research carried out by IMT Atlantique researcher Dominique Pastor, along with his team. Although the study involves a great degree of abstraction, the scientists never lose sight of practical applications, and not only in …

Data-mobility or the art of modeling travel patterns

mobility

The major rail workers’ strike in France on the spring of 2018 transformed French travel habits, especially in the Ile-de-France region. Vincent Gauthier, a researcher at Télécom SudParis, is working to understand the travel patterns in this region and around the world using mobile data. The original version of this …

Air quality: several approaches to modeling the invisible

qualité de l'air, modélisation, air quality, modeling

The theme day on air quality modeling (organized by FIMEA and IMT Lille Douai) on June 8 provided an opportunity for researchers in this field to exchange on existing methods. Modeling makes it possible to identify the link between pollution sources and receptors. These models help provide an understanding of atmospheric …

Waste management: decentralizing for better management

gestion des déchets, waste management

Reducing the environmental impact of waste and encouraging its reuse calls for a new approach to its management. This requires the modeling of circuits on a territorial scale, and the improvement of collaboration between public and private actors. Territorial waste management is one of the fundamental aspects of the circular …

Economics – dive in, there is so much to discover!

économie circulaire, impact environnemental

To effectively roll out circular economy policies within a territory, companies and decision-makers require access to evaluation and simulation tools. The design of these tools, still in the research phase, necessarily requires a more detailed consideration of the impact of human activities, both locally and globally. “The circular economy enables …

The virtualization of optical networks to support… 5G

réseaux optiques, optical networks

Mobile networks are not entirely wireless. They also rely on a network of optical fibers, which connect antennas to the core network, among other things. With the arrival of 5G, optical networks must be able to keep up with the ramping up of the rest of the mobile network to …

Is there intelligence in artificial intelligence?

intelligence artificielle, artificial intelligence

Jean-Louis Dessalles, Télécom Paris – Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) Nearly a decade ago, in 2012, the scientific world was enthralled by the achievements of deep learning.  Three years later, this technique enabled the AlphaGo program to beat Go champions. And this frightened some people. Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates were worried about an imminent …
