Inria and InterDigital Launch Nemo.AI Common Lab
To engage and employ scientists and engineers across the Brittany
region in researching the technologies that will shape the
metaverse, Inria, the French National Institute for Research in
Digital Science and Technology, and InterDigital, Inc.
(NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile and video technology research and
development company, announced the launch of the Nemo.AI
Common Lab. This public-private partnership is dedicated to
leveraging the combined research expertise of Inria and
InterDigital labs to foster local participation in emerging
innovations and global technology trends.
Named after the pioneering Captain Nemo from Jules Verne’s
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the Nemo.AI Common Lab aims to equip
the Brittany region with resources to pursue cutting edge
scientific research and explore the technologies that will define
media experiences in the future. The project reflects the
recognized importance of artificial intelligence (AI) in enabling
new media experiences in a digital and responsible society.
Equipped with funding from both organizations, as well as the
French government, the Nemo.AI Common Lab will recruit local
researchers, PhDs, post-doctoral students, engineers, and interns
to work on priority topics while InterDigital and Inria scientists
and engineers serve as research mentors and tutors. The Common Lab
will reside in both Inria and InterDigital labs and participants
may join scientific seminars, organize public events, jointly
deliver presentations, and more in both locations.
“We are delighted to launch the Nemo.AI Common Lab with Inria
and we know this partnership will not only strengthen scientific
excellence and visibility in our region, but create a space for
local researchers and engineers to contribute to the technologies
and innovations that will shape our future ecosystems, like the
metaverse,” said Lionel Oisel, Head of Video Labs, Research &
Innovation, at InterDigital. “Our expertise complements Inria’s
strong research capabilities and together this partnership will
bolster innovation across this community.”
Inspired by a mythical city on the coast of Brittany, the first
project addressed by the Nemo.AI Common Lab is called “Ys.ai” and
will develop new technologies to enable engagement in the
metaverse. Specifically, the project will examine user
representation in the form of avatars and explore their behavior
and interactions with objects and each other, as well as the
ability to interchange avatars between differing metaverse
standards and formats.
Inria is France’s leading institute for research in digital
science and technology and dedicates its researchers and resources
to exploring topics like AI and quantum computing, digital
security, data science and high-performance computing, among
others. InterDigital is one of the world’s largest pure research,
innovation, and licensing companies developing foundational IP and
industry standards for innovative solutions in wireless, video, and
