PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Spatio-temporal modeling and AI tools for dose-response analysis and prediction of radiation-induced brain damage and cognitive impairment in patients treated with radiotherapy for glioblastoma.

This thesis aims at developing probabilistic ST models and AI tools to: a) estimate the potential associations between radiation-induced brain tissue modifications (as observed in MR brain images following RT), the dose of IR absorbed to the brain at a fine spatial scale (e.g. voxels of MR brain images) and the occurrence of cognitive impairment in patients treated with RT for glioblastoma ; b) predict the individual occurrence of cognitive impairment in these patients at an early stage after RT, with a quantification of the associated prediction uncertainties The work will be based mainly on data from the EpiBrainRad cohort [Durand et al. (2015)], which is one of the largest international prospective cohorts of patients treated with chemo-radiotherapy for glioblastoma and who have undergone standardised neuropsychological assessments. This cohort currently includes 224 adults treated for glioblastoma at the Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière (Paris) or at ICANS (Strasbourg). Since 2015, data are collected prospectively during the clinical follow-up of patients. For each patient, they include: a) clinical characteristics; b) multimodal MR brain images (collected before surgery, before RT and then every 2-3 months after RT), c) CT images used in the planning of brain RT treatment; d) results of an extensive battery of cognitive tests performed before RT and at 12, 24 and 36 months after RT.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Adaptive sampling strategies for nonlinear dimension reduction in uncertainty quantification.

Computational models from a wide range of fields, such as physics, biology, and finance, involve large numbers of uncertain input parameters. Quantifying the uncertainty caused by these random parameters is essential to improve the reliability of the models. Identifying which input parameters are the most relevant permits significant computational savings by putting the numerical effort onto the relevant parameters [1,2]. This dimension reduction step can be efficiently done using gradients of the model, if the latter are available [3,4].

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Time-guaranteed and reliable execution for safety-critical multicore systems

The safety-critical embedded industries, such as avionics, automobile, robotics and health-care, require guarantees for hard real-time and correct application execution. As applications become more complex, their computational demands scale rapidly, requiring architectures with multiple processing elements. Although multicore architectures can effectively satisfy the needs of best-effort systems, the same cannot be stated for critical embedded systems due to hard-to-predict timing behaviour and increased fault susceptibility [1].

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Temperature-Sensitive Intrusion Detection for Crystal-Free Networks

Apart from trusting its local clock that drifts, the nodes in the SCμM network must additionally use the time information provided by the network. The fact that timekeeping is no longer local opens up an attack vector: An attacker can disturb the network by heating up a subset of nodes to change their drift. In this thesis, we will research, design and implement an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that applies machine learning techniques to network drift patterns in order to detect nodes under attack.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Guess What I’m Learning: Side-Channel Analysis of Edge AI Training Accelerators

Summary: The importance of data privacy in Deep Learning (DL) systems is without doubt. However, recent studies have shown how to use side-channels to guess key parameters or recover inputs from DL model inference running on accelerators. For example, input images of a DL model were estimated from collected power traces without knowing the detailed model parameters [1]. However, this thesis goes further than current practice by studying if private information can be retrieved during training phase, if it is possible to disrupt the training quality, and how to secure training accelerators. The objective is to study training-time, side-channel analysis, hardware attacks and required countermeasures, focusing on fault injections in edge AI accelerators.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Modeling 6DoF Navigation and the Impact of Low Vision in Immersive VR Contexts

ANR CREATTIVE3D (https://project.inria.fr/creattive3d/) is a French National Research Agency funded project that aims to establish a framework for the creation of attention-driven 3D environments for training low-vision navigation tasks. For patients with age-related macular degeneration (DMLA in French), which results in the loss of central field vision obscuring part of their visual field, navigating complex and potentially dangerous environments with autonomy and safety is one of the most demanding and dangerous tasks. Immersive environments and virtual reality (VR) technologies hold a strong potential towards training for low-vision navigation tasks [Rap18]. Yet the use of VR in these contexts is impeded by the difficulty of creating adapted 3D content to simulate a large range of real-life situations, and to study its effectiveness for training and rehabilitation. This limits incentives for accompanying staff to familiarize with VR, and broadly adopt it. The project sets out from the study and then the modeling of user behavior during navigation tasks in context, and subsequently using this understanding for assisted creativity tools to design adapted training scenarios.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M [DOCT2022-DIANA] Leveraging the wealth of available data for network monitoring and troubleshooting

Despite the considerable improvement we saw recent years in terms of internet access performance and the quality of the physical and virtualised infrastructures hosting the internet services, we are still facing a lot of situations where the internet service degrades and the end user Quality of Experience (QoE) is less than expected. The reasons are many, from the slowness of the device of the user, to the bad configuration of the WiFi at home, to the interference caused by the neighbouring WiFi networks, ​​​​​to the impairments caused by the cellular network infrastructure and the mobility of the user, to the saturation of the access link by the many devices and applications running at home, to the congestion in the ISP network especially on its peering links, till the overload of the servers of the content providers following a sudden increase in the users’ activities. There are also situations where the QoE degrades for other reasons than congestion or lack of resources, as when the ISP or the content providers decide to reduce the quality of their service to prioritise some part of the traffic over the rest a.k.a. network traffic differentiation, or to face scenarios of heavy service usage (video resolution reduction by major video stream platforms in confinement period). Those situations, and many others, exist well today and will not be solved in the immediate future despite the considerable advances seen and foreseen both at the network and the cloud levels. The problem is not only in the frustration they cause for the end user, but also in the difficulty for the end user to distinguish between them so as to be able to take the appropriate actions to counter their origins in the limit of possible.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M [DOCT2022-CAMIN] Estimation and prediction of human motion by numerical trajectory optimization for musculoskeletal models.

This thesis has three main objectives:

1.) To develop numerical models of muscle that are physiological while being compatible with optimization algorithms (continuity, differentiability) [4]. Particular attention will be paid to the dynamic behavior of these models (stability, steady state behavior), in order to make possible the analytical resolution of some differential equations involved in the different dynamics.

2.) To integrate these models into the rigid body dynamics calculation library, Pinocchio. Pinocchio is a state-of-the-art software for calculating the motion of polyarticulated rigid body systems (such as robots, skeletal models of the human body, etc.). Coded in C++, it is based on Eigen for linear algebra and on FCL for collision detection. In order for Pinocchio to extend beyond its initial field of application (robotics), an additional functionality is needed: muscle actuation. With this addition, it will become possible to animate musculoskeletal models from motor neuron excitation to body movement. This improvement requires :

  • extending the model definition from purely skeletal models to musculoskeletal models
  • designing associated visualization objects inside the Meshcat viewer
  • adding the notion of actuators that provide torque to joints
  • implementing the muscle models developed in 1.)

3.) To test the implementation and the developed models on practical cases of optimal control. Several options can be tested and compared: multiple shooting [5], differential dynamic programming [6] and direct collocation [7]. There is not yet a consensus in the literature on the superiority of one of these approaches over the others. A practical application envisaged in the framework of the CAMIN team’s clinical experiments is the real-time estimation of muscle forces induced by functional electrical stimulation to quantify the movements produced.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Stateful and distributed data stream processing

The data produced by the Internet of Things are often generated at the edge of the Internet in the form of data streams. Instead of always transferring them to the cloud to be processed there, a more efficient alternative exploits edge/fog computing technologies to process the data close to the location where they were created. This reduces the usage of long-distance networks and improves the response times. Data stream processing frameworks such as Apache Flink are well-suited for processing these data streams in real time. However, using these frameworks in geo-distributed environments such as edge/fog platforms incurs significant challenges.

The primary visual cortex V1 is an area of the brain responsible for a first treatment of images arriving from the retina. High level geometric models of V1 proved to be remarkable in their predictive capability. Wilson-Cowan equations, based on averaging the discrete structure of the cortex, have been successfully used, in particular, to identify recurring visual hallucinatory patterns. These nonlinear integro-differential equations, where an integral kernel encodes mutual activity inhibition and excitation between neurons based on their relative positions, are used to model neuronal activity in cortical areas.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M [DOCT2022-COATI] Algorithmic aspects and random network models for temporal brain networks

A mathematical object that has come to play a fundamental role in today’s science is that of Graph or Network [EK10]. As the theory developed and applications unfolded, in the last couple of decades scientists started considering a temporal generalization of the concept of networks, where edges can appear and disappear [CD15]. Such a new area of research, which most commonly goes under the name of temporal networks, is nowadays developing quickly, both in theoretical computer science and other mathematical fields, and in other applied sciences [C18]. Many applied sciences are trying to abstract their data as a temporal network with the hope that such coarse representation may unveil subjacent structures, while theoretical scientists are concerned with the design of efficient algorithms to analyze their mathematical properties [MS18]. One rapidly emerging domain in that respect is the study of the temporal activation of brain areas observed through functional magnetic resonance imaging, which is offering a new perspective on a growing number of psychiatric and neurological conditions [LD17, KW15, JJ17, SP10, DS18, JVM12].

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M [DOCT2022-ACENTAURI] Efficient polynomial systems solvers for large scale robotic problems

In this PhD we will focus on the optimization of polynomial cost functions since the number of equilibrium points (global minimum, local minima, saddle points) can be deterministically numbered. Indeed, when the cost function is a polynomial function the optimal solution can be obtained by solving a polynomial system of equations [5]. For such problems, we can find a ”closed form” using only standard linear algebra operations: matrix decomposition (LU, QR, SVD, …), eigenvalues and eigenvector computations, etc. Many of the state-of-the-art specific polynomial systems solvers are based on Gr¨obner bases and the action-matrix method [5]. There are now powerful tools available for the automatic generation of efficient Gr¨obner basis solvers for [8, 9, 11]. Such methods work  extremely well for problems of reasonably low degree, involving a few variables. Currently, the limiting factor in using these methods for larger and more demanding problems are numerical difficulties. When considering larger problems numerical stability is still an issue [3]. Another approach to polynomial system solution based on generalization of the homogeneous resultant introduced by Macaulay [12] to multivariate homogeneous polynomials. Resultant based approaches [2, 15] can be divided into u-resultant where an additional equation is added to the system of h-resultant where one of the unknown is hided in the coefficients. In both cases the solution is found by computing the eigenvalues (u-resultant) or the generalized eigenvalues (h-resultant) of matrices which size (and computation time) depends on the number of unknowns and the degree of the polynomials. For sparse polynomial systems it is possible to obtain more compact resultants using Sparse Resultants [7, 16]. Further improvements in efficiency can be obtained considering symmetries in the polynomials [10].

PhD position summary/title: Doctorant F/H [DOCT2022-ABS] Designing movesets for whole proteins

PhD topic-specific goals. The design of movesets for proteins usually distinguishes the protein backbone–for which methods from inverse kinematics are used [1], and the side–for which libraries of side chain conformations are at play. In recent work, we have proposed a novel paradigm to sample protein backbones [2,3,4]. The method combines novel mathematical insights into the so-called Tripeptide Loop Closure [2], with a Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling method called Hit-and-Run [5,6]. The goal of the thesis will be to extend this method to also incorporate multi-scale models of side chain conformations. The movesets obtained should be suitable for structural but also thermodynamic analysis. The methods used will borrow from computational geometry, numerical mathematics, kinematics, and machine learning. Implementation and tests will be conducted in the scope of the Structural Bioinformatics Library, see http://sbl.inria.fr

As part of a collaboration between the 2 teams Inria MimeTic and Hybrid, this project funded by EUR Digisport is part of an interdisciplinary context that combines Virtual Reality, Sport, and Heritage.

With the development of immersive technologies for the masses, using VR for sports training has become a valuable solution to train specific subskills with more engagement, motivation, and with new training paradigms. VR offers new possibilities as the system can trick with physics laws, and provides a unique control on multisensorial feedback. In this project we explore another facility that consists in enabling distant people to compete or train themselves in competition conditions.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M (BMI2022) Aggregation techniques for solving large-scale network flow formulations

Our research interests lie in the field of operations research (O.R.) and integer programming. Our goal is to propose mathematical methods and algorithms for abstract models that can be specialized to address a large number of problems. Our main methodological tools are based on decomposition methods and so-called extended integer programming formulations. Our expected contributions go from theoretical studies of problems and abstract models to algorithms and their efficient implementation in decision-support tools. To maximize our impact, we will develop high-level open- source interfaces for our methods, which will allow them to be used by a larger community of O.R. practitioners and decision makers.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M (BN2022) Information visualization for effective altruism

Background: Effective altruism is a movement whose goal it to use “evidence and reason to figure out how to benefit others as much as possible” [1]. It focuses in particular on alleviating global suffering through charitable donations, but distinguishes itself from most charitable endeavors through its focus on maximizing the amount of good a given donation can make. This movement can greatly benefit humanity, but there is little awareness about it including among regular donors, and even people who adhere to it lack tools to help them understand humanitarian trade-offs and make good decisions. Information visualization could help alleviate these two issues. Information visualization is the study of computer-supported, visual representations of data meant to support understanding, communication, and decision making. The goal of this thesis will be to study how to use information visualization to promote effective altruism, i.e., finding ways of using visual and possibly interactive representations of data to i) explain effective altruism and/or ii) help people make more effective humanitarian decisions. This is a vast topic on which there has been virtually no research so far, and part of the student’s work will be to find out which directions of research are worth pursuing, and which of those they would personally like to pursue. A direction that seems particularly interesting and novel is the use of non-conventional ways of visualizing information for the purposes of effective altruism, such as visualizations that go beyond standard computing devices and tap into emerging technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, ambient displays, and physical representations. For more on this, see [2].

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M Pattern-avoiding inversion sequences: enumeration and limit shapes

First, the PhD candidate should contribute to the research effort in enumerative combinatorics of pattern-avoiding inversion sequences. The expected results are new enumeration results for some families of pattern-avoiding inversion sequences. One suggested method to achieve this goal is the approach through generating trees. We are already aware of two possible growths for inversion sequences which can lead to interesting generating trees when some patterns are avoided. In addition, we aim at developing extensions of the method of generating trees, with applications to pattern-avoiding permutations, but possibly also to pattern-avoiding inversion sequences.

The goal of this project is to provide fast and reliable surface plot tools for researchers in mechanical design and control theory, with a focus on the triangulation of singular surfaces that are the solutions of algebraic or analytic equations and inequalities.
A classical way to represent a singular surface is to decompose it in smooth cells of dimension 0, 1 and 2. A topologically correct meshing of a singular surface must respect these features. The 2-dimensional cells are subdivided by triangles and the singularities (0 and 1-dimensional cells) are identified as special vertices and edges.

The Sémagramme team develops theoretical and practical tools for natural language modeling and processing. It puts a strong focus on descriptions and models of linguistic structures, such as tree or graph parse structures, or semantic representations. To this end, Sémagramme has developed the Abstract Categorial Grammar formalism (ACG, de Groote 2001). It is a grammatical framework in which the encoding of different grammatical formalisms is possible, for instance context-free grammars, tree adjoining grammars (TAG, Joshi and Schabes 1997), etc. It relies on languages of λ-terms, that generalize string and tree languages.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position F/M In situ semantic reconstruction for spontaneous augmented reality

The objective of this thesis is to allow a user to incrementally reconstruct, in three dimensions, an architectural environment by physically moving in the scene. The generated model will consist of surface or volume primitives (rectangles, boxes, ellipsoids, etc.), associated with semantic classes (ground, façade, building, tree, etc.). This type of representation is particularly adapted to CAD (Computer Aided Design), 3D computer graphics and GIS, where the objects manipulated must be both compact and informative. It is also very interesting for augmented reality (AR) since it facilitates the registration of the 3D model in video images [1,2] and the placement of virtual objects in relation to objects in the real scene.
