EFromont-copyrightUR1DirComJLB.jpeg Congratulations to Elisa Fromont, full professor at the Université Rennes 1 and member of IRISA (LACODAM research team), who has just been appointed junior member at the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF).

This appointment recognizes and supports the excellence of its research activity, a recognition emanating from a qualified and independent international jury.

Elisa’s project is about bridging the gap between the data mining (in the broad sense that includes machine learning) algorithms and their (possibly non data scientist expert) end-users by providing methods to increase the interpretability of the decisions and results provided by these algorithms. She will focus on two particular data mining approaches: pattern mining and (deep) neural networks. The proposed approaches will be mainly applied to anomaly detection in temporal data which is the topic of most of her current funded projects.

* About the Institut Universitaire de France.
Created in 1991, the IUF's mission is to promote the development of high-level research in universities and to strengthen the interdisciplinary nature of scientific activity, by pursuing three objectives:

  1. Encourage institutions and teacher-researchers to achieve excellence in research, with the positive consequences that can be expected on the teaching, training of young researchers and, more generally, the dissemination of knowledge;
  2. Contribute to the feminization of the research sector;
  3. Contribute to a balanced distribution of university research in the country, and thus to a policy of scientific networking of the territory.

IUF members, who must be teacher and researchers, continue to teach at their home university with a discharge for part of their teaching service and benefit from specific research credits for five years from their appointment.
