Looking back at 2020

Despite the pandemic, CEA List continued to innovate to its full capacity in 2020. CEA List teams have proven themselves to be resilient and agile as they pursued their mission of innovation for France’s economy and society. Their efforts translated into major publications in leading scientific journals and conference proceedings, as well as 83 patents filed on key technological advances.

CEA List also innovated in response to the Covid-19 crisis. One example of the institute’s work around the pandemic was the CLEAR (CEA List Emergency Assistance for Respiration) project, which resulted in designs for two new emergency ventilator systems.

Our mission: To transfer technological innovations to industry

CEA List R&D programs in AI, the Factory of the Future, cyberphysical systems, computing (including quantum), and digital health all address major economic and societal challenges. The institute has earned international recognition in a number of fields such as cybersecurity, digital health, artificial intelligence, and advanced manufacturing, and brings this know-how to international research partnerships and to the many European projects in which it is engaged. In 2020, the trust and commitment of CEA List’s industrial and academic partners allowed all joint research projects and initiatives to continue uninterrupted.

Here are a few of the scientific advances and highlights that marked the year 2020:

  • Validation testing of a deep learning algorithm using formal methods
  • High-profile research on the verification of applications on a quantum machine
  • Two open-source software platforms were released in 2020, one for embedded AI, and another for automated online image annotation
  • CEA List was renewed as a member of the Carnot Network
  • Three startups were created
  • 137 proposals were submitted for EU projects
