Bilateral Contracts with Industry


Participant : Jean-Baptiste Mouret.

  • Company: Emiota (http://www.wearbelty.com/ / http://www.emiota.fr/ )

  • Duration: 03/2015 – 12/2015

  • Abstract: Emiota is a startup that works on a “smart” belt: a motorized and sensorized belt that both senses bio-medical data and adapts its length to the activity of its holder. For instance, the belt could tighten if it detects that its holder is getting up and relax if he sits down. In this contract, the Larsen team demonstrated how Bayesian optimization and Gaussian processes, two machine learning techniques used in our recent Nature paper [11] , can be used to achieve this adaptation.
