Culture & Creation

Information-sharing, access to culture, and preserving heritage are examples of areas where digital technology is completely changing the cultural and creative industries. Whether it’s broadcasting, movies, heritage, or the arts, the cultural and creative industries are associated with a strong, internationally famous French identity.

With world-renowned expertise at the highest level, b<>com is taking action in this technology landscape for which excellence is a must, including in augmented reality, immersion, 3D image/sound/video playback, content production/post-production, digital distribution, and rights protection. b<>com is also a player on the international scene, taking part in standardization bodies and industrial alliances in order to encourage the development of interoperable technologies for the cultural and creative industries, with an eye toward the export market.

 

Digital Infrastructures

Our societies are experiencing a fundamental transformation; the world is becoming more digital at all levels, including human relationships, recreation, production, government agencies, and more. We are now living in a world that is growing increasingly virtual, tending toward optimization and focused on the collection, exchange, and usage of data of all kinds.

b<>com is a guide to this transformation through its convergent network and application infrastructure solutions that open the way to increasing flexibility, more opportunities for adapting to needs and practices, and the instituting of end-to-end high-quality services. b<>com is also addressing the serious challenges of security for users and their data by offering innovative solutions to deploy digital infrastructure that better protects the rights and freedoms of everyone.

Health

The health care program addresses major issues for individuals and the public at large. b<>com creates innovative components based on the latest digital technologies for personalized, distributed, and integrated health care: medical imaging and health data cloud, support for translational research for developing biomarkers; image-guided provider assistance, particularly via augmented reality; support for surgical workflows and synchronized real-time medical video; integrating data around the clinical pathway, making the patient an agent in their own health; evaluating the acceptability of the impact of digital technology by health professionals and patients.

 

Industry 4.0

Much like the last three industrial revolutions, Industry 4.0 aims to totally change the way goods are mass-produced. To address the needs of consumers who are seeking increasing low-cost customization, the factories of the future must rely on new technologies integrated all along the value chain.

b<>com offers the factories of the future the benefits of its solutions in the areas of augmented and virtual reality, advanced connectivity (LTE/4G/5G), the Internet of Things, the media, the Cloud, and artificial intelligence.

Defense

Defense in particular, but more broadly the security and trust industries, are seeking to encourage the emergence of new forms of innovation and new kinds of innovators.

With its scientific potential and engineering capabilities, b<>com, which addresses innovation in various civilian technologies (5G, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, spatialized audio, holography, user experience, digital infrastructure, etc.), can play a role in the digital transformation in order to help these technologies find new use cases in critical environments, thereby becoming dual-use. Already active in cybersecurity with concrete results in authentication and digital identity, content protection, network security with anomaly detection, intrusion, and remediation, b<>com is opening up its projects to cyberdefense with its shareholder-members and the French ecosystem, particularly including the Pôle d'Excellence Cyber Cluster.

Advanced Media Content

Most of tomorrow’s media formats tend to increase the sense of immersion into the content. Transforming the end-user/consumer’s experience by putting them into the middle of the action or information is the challenge, especially whenever narrative aspects are key.

Human Factors Technologies

Smart assistants, self-driving cars, cognitive interfaces, automated decision support... New technological challenges are leading us to fully rethink the relationship between humans and machines.

Advanced Connectivity

Communication systems are experiencing a major change being driven by their convergence on technologies drawn from information systems: Network programming, virtualization, and now cloudification, flexibility, and speed of deployment.

Trust & Security

Today, digital life is an integral part of our routines. But without security, this new component becomes a threat to our personal data, the normal operation of businesses, and the confidentiality of communications.
