Practical aspects of the Coq system: why is it considered a major advance in Computer Science
In 2014, The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) gave the "Software System Award" to the Coq system. In this talk, we shall explain why this professional access considers that this system is a major advance for the future of computer technology. In practice, we shall show that programs can be described in mathematical and logical terms, that theorems can be stated about programs, and that the proof of these theorems can be verified by computers.

The Ellcie Healthy smart glasses: 23 grams of technology made in France
Ellcie Healthy smart connected glasses (eyewear) have been designed to look after people and prevent risks like drowsiness at the wheel. Fifteen sensors embedded in the frame continuously measure physical, physiological and environmental data that are processed by Ellcie Healthy’s Artificial Intelligence to raise an alert when needed. The first part of the talk will cover the company history and the development of our first commercial product. In the second part of the talk we will present the research and development projects that we are conducting in collaboration with research laboratories to develop new concepts and technologies like sensory substitution devices ("Artefact" project: LEAT, UCA) and fall prevention applications for elderly people (Lamhess, UFR Staps and CHU Nice).
