Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR)


ISIR researchers help to anticipate the profound transformations in our societies brought about by the advent of artificial intelligences and robots. They work on the autonomy of machines and their ability to interact with human beings. Gathered in multidisciplinary teams, they create all kinds of intelligent and interactive systems, physical, virtual or mixed reality. Their applications address major societal challenges: health, industry of the future, transport, personal services.

Exposition La preuve par l'image 2021

In 2019, the CNRS launched a partnership with the ACFAS to organise the French edition of La Preuve par l’Image, an annual photo competition first held in Quebec in 2010. For this third CNRS edition, researchers were again invited to submit their best scientific images. The competition challenges participants to showcase their research by means of eye-catching, thoughtprovoking images rather than words.

The history of the CNRS is fundamentally linked to the history of science and scientific advances and that of how research is organized and its policy aspects. Since its creation, the CNRS has successfully transformed and renewed itself to help it coordinate, federate and support constantly evolving research of excellence. The 13 panels of the exhibition describe the major milestones of this history from its beginnings in 1939 right up to the 2000s.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
