Nikos Paragios: a life devoted to artificial vision and its applications in medicine

Françoise Monfort - Technoscope - 16/11/2010

This year,  eight ERC grant winners are leaders or members of Inria project-teams. Nikos Paragios, a teacher at the Ecole Centrale de Paris, was awarded a starting grant. Worth approximately 1,500,000 euros, this grant will allow the researcher to reinforce the GALEN team and conduct an ambitious five-year research project on artificial vision and its applications in the medical field. Here, we get to know the grant-winning scientist.

Efficient, modular tools to aid interpretation of medical images

Françoise Breton, Technoscope - 28/09/2012

Medical imaging, scans and MRIs provide a lot of data, but identifying the development of an illness or detecting a slow-growing tumour is no easy task. The Galen team is developing algorithms designed to help doctors identify these changes as early as possible. The team's work focuses essentially on methodology and has been successfully applied in a number of contexts, as demonstrated by the significant contribution of its researchers to MICCAI’2012 and previous symposia.

Joint interview with Olivier Clatz and Pierre Fillard

Patrick Philipon - Technoscope - 30/07/2013

Therapixel, a start-up based on Inria research, offers a device that can be used to view data and images without touching a screen or keyboard. This solution is eagerly awaited by surgeons, who cannot afford to make the slightest contact with unsterilised items in the operating theatre. We spoke to the company's Technical Director, Pierre Fillard, and its Chairman, Olivier Clatz.
