Highlights of the Year
This year we would like to mention two publications as highlights of the year.
The first highlight is related to the Snowball Inria Associated Team supervised by Adrien Coulet (see § 8.4.1). The participants to Snowball have obtained very good results in AI and Medicine which have been recently published in the selective journal “Scientific Reports” . In addition, the same participants have obtained a “Grant Seed” funded by Stanford University, to pursue their research efforts in building fair and equitable predictive models for medicine (see http://medicine.stanford.edu/news/current-news/standard-news/presenceannouncesseedgrantawardees.html).
The second highlight is related to the stay of Chedy Raïssi at NASA lab in 2018 (see § 184.108.40.206). Chedy Raïssi worked with some other researchers on a machine-learning model for classifying signals from local and global views of the light curves. The researchers had the idea of associating expert domain knowledge with the model and they were able to obtain very good results unseen until now (see https://aasnova.org/2018/12/07/using-machine-learning-to-find-planets/?fbclid=IwAR0UI9LcjlSYKh8JNDiJzztwK0OUqxkhtzdTGod20U10JLKO4vm6sPPU990). A publication on this work was accepted and published .
