Digital uses and media / Services

This sector breaks down into two sub-sectors:

  • digital and media applications: all players involved in producing and distributing real or virtual images for the cinema, audiovisual, animation, video games and multimedia markets. This sector includes e-learning and online services such as e-commerce. Content production for telecoms operators is also part of this sector.
  • services (finance, banking, training, etc.)

Supporting Innovation

Tourism is now an important industry.. It is economically dependent to, a large extent though, on the most appropriate response given to increasingly demanding, global and mobile travellers. Very much aware of the territorial challenges ahead, Data Moove aims at providing current and correct information to the right people in the right place at the right time. The start-up pulled off the ambitious venture by aggregating wisely a rather heterogeneous collection of data and selecting relevant information while making them available via a kiosk or mobile extension by means of its City Moove app. The partnership with a Carnot institute will enable the enterprise to go further and build a brand ecosystem of services to support the travellers.

The client needs

The territorial reform and progression towards more sustainable and competitive tourism require the territories to mobilise their resources and optimise their economic benefits. Data Moove thus offers both the local authorities and private stakeholders a solution providing real-time information for the tourist as to the many activities he can take advantage of during his stay. From the day it was founded back in 2014, Data Moove has been exploiting large volumes of public and private sources related to tourism and culture, in accordance with applicable regulation and in compliance with the strictest quality criteria. Given the huge amount of data and various types of contents, the continuous updating through social networks as well as the obvious redundancies, R&D support has been indispensable. For its part, Carnot Télécom & Société numérique works on structuring the social media data, while modelling variations and relationships by use of semantic graphs. The partnership has started as early as 2015.

Partnership

EURECOM, an engineering school part of the Télécom & Société numérique Carnot Institute based at Sophia Antipolis** quickly learned how to work through and around the constraints and objectives experienced by Data Moove. The partnership has facilitated the development of a major app function that can, on the one hand, be auto-calibrated to assess the degree of similarity resulting in duplicate entries and, on the other hand, categorise events. Saint Barthélemy has been the first location equipped with the relevant software. The application can naturally be set to adapt to every single type of digital environment and connect automatically to existing application programs. Due to the huge potential of the global tourism market, a project of interactive dialogs was launched accordingly in 2018. EURECOM and Data Moove pursue a comprehensive strategic research partnership which includes, beyond the R&D component, a system of financial support for companies. The solution range has revealed support and commitment across the partners and a broad spectrum of the parties involved, including the tourist information services.

Iskn capitalises on current scientific research related to magnetic fields to streamline interface between traditional drawing and digital graphic design.

Three researchers have transformed more than 50 years of research on magnetoresistance by the Leti Carnot Institute into an app dedicated to raise public awareness of the arts, the design and education.

Supporting Innovation

The production of a digital graphic usually requires the use of a graphic tablet or the scanning and editing of a paper drawing. The Slate system allows to use of a standard pad with  a simple drawing tool. It is equipped with a sheet of paper laid on an adjustable support and a pen fitted with a magnetic ring.
To record the drawing, each movement of the pen is sensed by the 32 tri-axial magnetometers embedded in the support. The data are sent over to a Smartphone or tablet in both real-time and off-line modes.
The associated software allows both the drawing to be manipulated, edited and exported for common formats.
Intended for the general public, the Slate system is distributed in more than 350 points of sales including the major French brands. After Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, the Asian markets see in Slate a way to match the Art of Calligraphy with prospective digital teaching materials.

The client needs

In a highly competitive sector, iskn illustrates the need for further R&D to be carried on to turn such innovative project into an economic success.
Indeed, digital drawing software programs have been efficiently applied for nearly 30 years.
The Leti Engineers who have brought the research to where it stands today wanted to give back the right to determine what tools are needed as appropriate to any human operators. They, for the most part, were betting on the links between physical objects and digital world.
A crowdfunding campaign has allowed the gathering of an amount significantly higher than the level of financing needed. However, moving beyond the announcement effect and great deal of interest generated, the technological leadership had to be safeguarded. By constituting a common laboratory with Carnot CEA LETI, iskn has grown from 12 patents upon their establishment in 2014 to 20 today.
This type of multi-year collaboration is essential to make it possible for the SME of 38 employees to respond favourably to increasing public and professional expectations alike, while turning to the world of interactive entertainment products and applications of business functional practices.

 

Partnership

As part of the CEA Tech Institute, the Grenoble-based Carnot CEA LETI has taken a pioneering role in studying and facilitating the uptake of discoveries on antiferromagnetic (AFM) and ferromagnetic fluctuations. The work of 1970 Nobel Laureate French physicist Louis Néel has been very determining in this regard. The Leti Institute is a major player in terms of dynamic R&D in the area, thanks, in particular to the Grenoble Innovation for Advanced New Technologies (GIANT) campus.
The intelligent Slate pen tablet uses a matrix of ultra-sensitive magnetometers and signal-processing algorithms carried out under the partnership and protected by 22 valid and enforceable patents.
With 50.000 “Slate” sold since the beginning, a growth in revenue by almost 300% against 2017 and the doubling of the number of employees in 2018, the long-lasting collaboration and closeness of interactions with researchers provide iskn the means to strengthen an already solid case.
