Bilateral Grants with Industry
Maël Guillemé has obtained a CIFRE PhD grant with the Energiency startup, supervised by V. Masson and L. Rozé. The goal of Maël's thesis is to propose new approaches to improve industrial energy performance by integrating both numerical and symbolic attributes. An M2 internship from 2016 explored an approach based on an algorithm proposed by Shokoohi and al,. and proposed several improvements: avoid data normalisation, detect patterns as fast as possible, enhance functions like distance and score.
Another CIFRE thesis has started, this time with the Amossys company, which specializes in cyber-security. This is the PhD of Alban Siffer, located in the EMSEC team of IRISA and co-supervised between EMSEC (P.A. Fouque) and LACODAM (A. Termier, C. Largouët). The goal of this PhD is to propose new methods for intrusion detection in networks. The novel insight is to consider only IP flow as input (metadata of packets and not packet contents) and detect intrusion via unusual traffic patterns.
On October 2017, Colin Leverger started a thesis funded by Orange and co-supervised between Orange Labs (R. Marguerie), LACODAM (A. Termier, T. Guyet) and LinkMedia (S. Malinowski). The goal of this thesis is to propose new methods to forecast time series in order to support capacity planning tasks.
Elisa Fromont is still involved in the supervision of two PhD students through her former employer: the University of Saint-Etienne. One of the students is Guillaume Metzler, who works with the sponsorship of the Blitz company on bank fraud detection. On the other hand, Kevin Bascol (financed by a FUI project) works in collaboration with Bluecime (Grenoble) and works on improving ski-lift security.
