SXSW 2017 : The “E Factor”

South by Southwest Interactive and Film ended in Austin on Thursday. A record crowd came out, with many widely seen moments like always, such as appearances by astronaut Buzz Aldrin (his "We explore or we expire " was the theme of the week) and Vice President Joe Biden. But besides the stars, the event is the place where creators and innovators from all over the world meet to discuss trends for 10 days. This 2017 edition will be defined by the "E factor": E for Experience, Experimentation, Engagement and Empowerment.

MWC 2017: technological evolutions rather than a revolution

The Mobile World Congress, an essential annual meeting for those who work in mobile telephony, attracted a record number of attendees yet again this year. Nearly 110,000 people from 208 countries and territories all over the world were present to learn about and discuss new mobile terminals, connectivity standards, testing equipment, and applications for the networks of the future. The MWC has grown from year to year, and is gradually becoming the “CES of mobility”.

innovation fields

b<>com innovates in 3 main fields:

  • Hypermedia (ultra-high-definition images, 3D images, smart content, virtual and augmented reality, etc.)
  • Networks & Security (ultra-high-speed and upcoming generations)
  • e-Health

To achieve our goals, we have developed a line of skills for use across industries, divided into nine varieties of experimentation.

Augmented Healthcare

Moving towards personalized medicine, improving clinical benefits thanks to more accurate diagnoses and more effective, better-targeted treatments: these are typical challenges for the Augmented Healthcare lab. It co-builds tools with the practitioner that are needed to improve his or her performance, from establishing a diagnosis to providing an exacting level of care.
Augmented Healthcare

Connected Healthcare

The progress of medical imaging and information technologies promise a new era in medical care, offering each patient a personalized, optimal health path. But the heterogeneous and distributed nature of health data is an obstacle to the adoption of new clinical solutions. The Connected Healthcare lab develops technological bricks that facilitate the sharing of distributed data, while ensuring its privacy and security, for better analysis and diagnosis.
Connected Healthcare

Network Architecture

"Everything at our fingertips": Widespread access to all types of content at all times and from all places is key to today’s new practices. But the boom in data transfers, the growing number of terminals, the complexity of content, and the need for instant speed mean that the architecture of telecommunications networks must be redesigned. With this in mind, the Network Architecture lab designs architectures suited to these needs and the overall management system that will enable the optimal use of the resources deployed.
Network Architecture

Network Interfaces

To be connected or not to be connected, that is definitely NOT the question. Being connected at all times, in all places, to all types of content is essential. This evolution in usages involves the deployment of new optical and radio technologies, an essential condition for resizing networks. The Network Interfaces laboratory develops these technologies in order to effectively respond to the explosion in transmission speeds and the proliferation of different technologies, while making an effort to reduce their power consumption.
Network Interfaces

Cloud Computing

The cloud will furnish the general public (including companies and individuals) with a new kind of power, which we call "information power". Simplicity, computing power, data sharing, accessibility, and low cost are its main advantages. To take part in this ongoing revolution, the Cloud Computing laboratory seeks to optimize where data is located and ensure that it is protected, while also taking into account the ecological impact of data centers. The goal is to prepare for the cloud technologies of tomorrow.

Advanced Media Coding

Most of tomorrow's media formats are likely to improve the immersiveness of content. The challenge is transforming the experience of viewers and users by putting them in the middle of the action or information they're looking for. All the universes are connected: Television, movies, games, advertising, co-working, surveillance, the web, and more. The Advanced Media Coding lab builds tools that allow publication, storage, and sharing for and by the general public.

Immersive Interactions

Improving perception of the environment, understanding complex data, or allowing remote users to interact and collaborate: These are the challenges that the Immersive Interactions lab is striving to meet, using augmented reality and virtual reality technologies. It also seeks to improve the physiological and psychological acceptability of the proposed technological solutions.
Immersive Interactions

Usage & Acceptability

Meeting the clients' needs by putting them at the center of the development process is a fairly old concept at this point. Ensuring user satisfaction by measuring their emotions, building their loyalty by measuring their commitment, and ensuring the optimal acceptability of emerging technologies, are new issues. The Usage & Acceptability lab aims to maximize user experience, identify new behaviors and business models, and develop guidance tools needed to continue their progress.
Usage & Acceptability

Digital Trust & Identity

The advantages of digitizing documents and the ease of data sharing have benefited everyone. But without security, these transfers are also a threat. The Digital Trust & Identity lab builds tools to establish digital trust, while ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of your data exchanges.
