Artificial Intelligence

The striking progress of statistical learning over the past decade has led to wild expectations about the ability of machines to reproduce human behavior.

    These Artificial Intelligence techniques can apply equally to masses of data compiled in a computing center, or to data captured and processed by a smartphone. They are now entering a domestication phase, where technological, legal, and ethical questions are being asked in order to offer responsible AI approaches.

    The Artificial Intelligence lab designs solutions to address issues in future networks, computer vision, cyberdefense, and e-health. Designing embedded imaging and radio communication applications, anomaly detection or classification, system resilience, human factor management, pathology prediction, and reliable diagnostics are the main challenges being tackled. To do so, the lab relies on traditional disciplines of automated language, signal, image processing, 3D vision, and dynamic programming, whose potential has been compounded by statistical learning. It can also count on its skills in hardware/software engineering and a legal team. Its methodological approach makes its algorithms explainable and robust so as to facilitate their certification.

    Efficient channel charting via phase-insensitive distance computation

    Channel charting is an unsupervised learning task whose objective is to encode channels so that the obtained representation reflects the relative spatial locations of the corresponding users. It has many potential applications, ranging from user scheduling to proactive handover. In this paper, a channel charting method is proposed, based on a distance measure specifically designed to reduce the…

    Efficient Multi-stream Temporal Learning and Post-fusion Strategy for 3D Skeleton-based Hand Activity Recognition

    Recognizing first-person hand activity is a challenging task, especially when not enough data are available. In this paper, we tackle this challenge by proposing a new hybrid learning pipeline for skeleton-based hand activity recognition, which is composed of three blocks. First, for a given sequence of hand’s joint positions, the spatial features are extracted using a dedicated combination of…

    Acceptability and 5G in the Medical Field: The Impact of the Level of Information

    The issues around 5G are considerable: sovereignty, smart city, industry 4.0, energy, connected healthcare. However, 5G is currently raising many questions from the general public and professionals. To better understand these questions related to acceptability, a quantitative experimental study was conducted with 81 healthcare professionals, via an online questionnaire. The objective is to…

    Similarity-based prediction for channel mapping and user positioning

    In a wireless network, gathering information at the base station about mobile users based only on uplink channel measurements is an interesting challenge. Indeed, accessing the users locations and predicting their downlink channels would be particularly useful in order to optimize the network efficiency. In this paper, a supervised machine learning approach addressing these tasks in an unified…
