Creativity and innovation are the new motto of the modern world. We are constantly exhorted to be creative, to think out of the box, to push our limits. Flow machines (funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and coordinated by François Pachet) are content creation software aiming at enhancing individual creativity.
CP Has Landed on the CometGilles Simonin, Christian Artigues, Emmanuel Hebrard, Pierre Lopez and Pauline Ballereau, of the Operations Research & Constraints group (ROC).20 May 2015TAGS: space
On June 13th 2015, the robot-lab Philae woke up on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko to resume a series of experiments interrupted seven months ago. These experiments were scheduled using Constraint Programming, and researchers of the team ROC of the LAAS-CNRS lab developed propagation algorithms to help the Scientific Operations and Navigation Centre (SONC) to efficiently achieve this task.
