Lucibel’s products in the spotlight at LuxLive 2014

Marine Juillard - 23-oct.-2014 16:16:48
Lucibel of France, a major player in the LED lighting sector, will be exhibiting its innovative solutions at the LuxLive trade show, which will take place at the ExCel exhibition centre in London (UK) from 19 to 20 November 2014. Lucibel will present its brand-new-generation LED panel and its new Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) concept designed for use in museums, galleries and showrooms. Lucibel, a specialist in the design and production of innovative lighting solutions based on Light-Emitting Diode (LED) technology, will showcase two of its stand-out products at LuxLive 2014. The first is its brand-new-generation LED panel, which provides the best luminosity output to power consumption ratio on the market. This product offers unparalleled energy savings, outperforming similar products, and greatly increases the customer’s ROI. Lucibel will also present its new Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) concept designed for use in museums, galleries and showrooms. For the first time, Lucibel has combined Li-Fi technology with LED lighting to transform existing LED lighting elements into Li-Fi emitters that can then remotely transmit multimedia content (sound, video, geolocation, etc.) to a tablet or smartphone. Using an indoor geolocation application on a tablet device, visitors have direct and automatic access to interactive content corresponding to the object on display. This virtual guide gives traditional visits a whole new dimension, making them more natural and intuitive. Lucibel’s solution is an integral part of the LED lighting element and requires no additional infrastructure or energy consumption. It can be featured in multiple applications, and reflects the company’s ambition to offer more than a simple lighting function, allowing customers to benefit from the many opportunities proposed by LED technology. The multiple advantages of LEDs have made them the preferred technology for new lighting sources. LED lighting efficiency reduces energy consumption by up to 80% compared to traditional technologies, increases operating life by up to 20 times, and can be controlled remotely or programmed to interact with its surroundings. Further advantages of LED technology include its homogenous, flicker-free luminous flux, excellent colour rendering, immediate illumination, lack of sensitivity to on/off switching cycles, and a wide range of integration and customisation possibilities. The company develops and produces the majority of its products in its own factories in France, selecting the best components on the market and ensuring that technical aspects are constantly being improved. Lucibel focuses on the professional market segments in which its solutions contribute maximum added value to the customer, such as hotels and restaurants, offices and industry, public authorities, and retail. As well as guaranteeing technical performance and energy efficiency, Lucibel also designs specific solutions adapted to client specifications and whose benefits go beyond lighting functions alone. Such benefits include incomparable product or site enhancement to boost customer visits and sales activity, a quality of light that improves well-being and productivity of employees, intelligent management of light sources to optimise energy consumption, and new functionalities such as the transmission of wireless data to enrich visitor experience. Lucibel has a dedicated London-based team that works closely with clients on their projects, advising and informing them about relevant applicable standards and undertaking return on investment studies. The team can also carry out studies into lighting, 3D simulations, and thermal dissipation.

Qucit makes life easier at Dublin Web Summit 2014

Marine Juillard - 16-oct.-2014 18:46:07
Qucit, a prize winner at the Worldwide Innovation Challenge in July 2014, offers predictive analysis tools to optimise urban mobility, diminish pollution and improve the well-being of citizens. The company will be presenting its solutions on the UBIFRANCE FrenchTech pavilion at the Dublin Web Summit, which will take place at the Royal Dublin Society from 4 to 6 November 2014. Founder of Qucit Raphaël Cherrier explains: “Our aim is to use the strength of real-time data, predictive analysis and machine learning to help improve the development of attractive and more sustainable towns, in terms of consumption of raw materials (energy, time and water). The company’s flagship product – which is a world first – is a prediction motor integrated with the Bonne Station system from Keolis Bordeaux that analyses the use of self-service bicycles in urban areas.   Over recent years, a number of conurbations have developed systems of self-service vehicles, the majority of which are bicycles. This new transport option is growing rapidly, both in terms of the number of participating towns and cities as well as the number of users. An additional 200 towns worldwide are currently equipping themselves to enable their inhabitants to benefit from self-service vehicles. One of the main problems encountered with self-service bicycles involves the restocking of docking stations. Restocking is essential to ensure a balance of available vehicles and empty docking points in any one station at any one time. Many stations are often badly balanced, with a lack of vehicles in some and a lack of parking places in others. At present, restocking is carried out by lorries that travel across town centres from station to station. This exercise creates pollution and congestion and has considerable room for improvement. There are numerous benefits to Qucit’s application, including facilitated network growth, service reliability and improved equipment quality. Statistical analysis allows for better breakdown detection and Qucit’s predictive analysis makes it possible to modify the use and control of the network of shared vehicles for a fraction of the current cost and without CO2 emission. Mr Cherrier adds: “We do not restrict ourselves to bicycles. Qucit’s next projects involve the extension of the self-service bicycle tool to other uses linked to the prediction of urban mobility (parking, public transport, etc.).” About Qucit Qucit was founded in May 2014 by Raphaël Cherrier, a former Lecturer at Arts et Métiers Paris Tech (ENSAM), a specialist engineering university in Paris. It currently has five employees but envisages rapid international growth. Qucit specialises in the development of real-time big-data analysis and predictive analysis tools that can be used to optimise mobility, lower pollution and improve the well-being of citizens in towns and cities across the world. These award-winning analysis solutions have been developed over a three-year research period as part of is an ongoing project in partnership with the LaBRI (Bordeaux Laboratory of Computer Research) and the IMB (Bordeaux Mathematics Institute).

Domoscio knows how to succeed at Dublin Web Summit 2014

Marine Juillard - 13-oct.-2014 16:59:46
Domoscio of France, a specialist in the field of educational technology (EdTech), will showcase its expertise at this year’s Dublin Web Summit, which will take place at the Royal Dublin Society in Ireland from 4 to 6 November 2014. Domoscio is keen to meet potential partners and investors as part of its strategy for international growth. Domoscio’s CTO Benoit Praly says: “Lack of knowledge can be costly. Domoscio is an adaptive-learning solution based on the consolidation of knowledge. We encourage businesses and training organisations to address issues surrounding efficient learning processes and to measure the relevance of training programmes.” By linking cognitive studies with adaptive algorithms, Domoscio acts as a personal assistant for more rapid learning and longer information retention. To achieve this, Domoscio calculates optimum revision periods and topics for each user according to their learning abilities. In fact, the solution tends towards short revision periods that gather together several key principles. CEO of Domoscio Ivan Ostrowicz explains: “It is easy to see the advantages. At a time of free and accessible content both for and by all, it is essential to re-invent the acquisition and use of knowledge. For example, e-learning must no longer be the simple delivery of knowledge and information, but assimilation and mastery of know-how.” From the first evaluation of the user’s competencies to the implementation of acquired knowledge (based on the structuring of knowledge), Domoscio pilots an adapted and personalised revision programme by sending messages (aides-memoires) by smartphone notification or by email to each user. Furthermore, Domoscio provides individualised and detailed analysis of each learner’s level of knowledge. Mr Ostrowicz adds: “Domoscio helps to pilot and measure the effectiveness of training schemes. It allows e-education providers and training specialists to improve and personalise training methods, enabling users to learn more by optimising effort.” Users become more efficient and regain the taste for learning. For example, to help a student achieve 100% rather than 60% in their history test, Domoscio sends personalised messages by smartphone notification or email that focus on areas of knowledge that had not previously been retained by the user. For example, the message will recap the three countries that took part in the Yalta conference if the user was only previously able to recall two of them. Domoscio can be used by business managers to monitor their employees’ progress in terms of acquisition and practical implementation of knowledge. With this information, the employer is able to adapt programmes to suit personal training needs as well as measure the adequacy of their training plan. Training centres can also benefit from Domoscio’s solutions. With the help of personalised statistics, it is easy to evaluate and enhance current training programmes as well as develop new services. Domoscio’s solutions conform to IT norms (interfaces and plug-ins), making them compatible with all information systems. About Domoscio Domoscio, which is headquartered in Paris, is a French start-up providing technological solutions in the fields of education and training. The solution uses a statistical algorithm based on best practice in cognitive sciences and neurosciences in order to anchor knowledge and enable the user to progress their studies at their own rhythm. Domoscio’s aim is both to improve the skill level, through increased knowledge retention, of all users (students, trainees, etc.) as well as help parents, teachers, trainers or managers in their roles as educators, mentors and tutors, giving the trainee a desire to learn and pleasure to succeed.

French cybersecurity firms increasingly successful in fast-growing market

Marine Juillard - 30-juil.-2014 10:51:21
In 2013, there was a 12% year-on-year rise in cybersecurity attacks, with nearly 60% of them causing either brand damage or direct revenue loss to businesses. This, coupled with highly publicized commercial and government breaches of IT security, has increased the demand for cybersecurity services. French companies are strongly placed in this growing market and their advanced solutions are in demand.     The 12% year-on-year increase in cybersecurity attacks that affected businesses in 2013 (Source: IBM 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index ), regrettable as it may be, translates into the fact that the IT-security sector is experiencing sustained growth in this segment of the market. High-profile cases, such as the cyber-attacks on US retail chain Target, have raised awareness among business executives.   While US-based and British companies dominate current business in this sector, client entities are looking for alternatives in order to alleviate their worries of government intrusion. In this respect, French specialist companies are a strong contender in the eyes of many professionals and executives working for SMEs and start-ups, but also at established, larger groups: these clients are leveraging the French know-how stemming from top R&D centres and universities.   In 2013, the French cybersecurity sector was valued at more than $2 billion. The French network-security sector offers a wide range of services, including B2B IT solutions meeting strategic challenges, and comprises many world champions such as Atos, Orange, Sogeti, Bull, Cassidian and the cybersecurity division at Thales.   Thanks to their advanced technical research laboratories, more particularly in cryptology and encryption, French players are recognized worldwide.   According to Thibaut Barde, UBIFRANCE’s Project Manager for Digital Trust & Cyber Security, “T he reason for cutting-edge technology [thriving in France] is the quality of French universities in the field of engineering, which is known globally.   Research laboratories associated with these universities train the best engineers of tomorrow.”     Secure IC SAS is a shining example of a company that has been working with top graduates having come out of the French educational system in order to become a thought leader in cybersecurity. Its platforms provide the highest level of security on a client entity’s embedded systems, preventing hacking and reverse engineering as well as protecting intellectual property and proprietary data. In 2013, Secure IC SAS won a Sesame Award for innovation in the manufacturing and testing of IT products.   French start-ups and SMEs have developed out of a strong domestic talent pool and many have decided to join forces under the HexaTrust label, which regroups 20 hi-tech SMEs that are keen to offer a co-ordinated, total service package to their clients.   T hese software vendors and integrators provide a full range of products and services dedicated to the protection of the critical infrastructure of businesses and institutions from cyber-attacks. The HexaTrust umbrella group’s portfolio of current and potential clients is diverse and growing, including businesses and public-sector agencies of all sizes.   Due to the dramatic increase in the level of sophistication and intensity of cyber-attacks, public- and private-sector investment in cybersecurity is growing fast and is expected to rise by nearly 10% per year between now and 2017. This trend illustrates the promising opportunities that exist for a large business looking for a new market, or for a dynamic SME scaling up a new product.   Thibaut Barde of UBIFRANCE Paris explains that, “France’s distance from recent scandals [involving the international and covert collection of data by various government agencies, as revealed in the media] is favourable for French players since awareness on the use of data takes place at a global level. This has helped to build the profile of the industry and has generated increasing concerns for [the security of] personal data, which is a real asset for the French in particular: it is important when it comes to ​​data-storage companies, among others.”   Many French companies in the sector are choosing to develop an international business outlook. French players have strong opportunities to seize in this market thanks to their technological expertise, combined with the diversity of products and services they can offer.   UBIFRANCE is here to help, with a strong presence at next year’s Infosecurity Europe trade event, where there will be as many as 15 French companies looking to expand their presence into the British market and other European markets. Infosecurity Europe will take place from 2 to 4 June 2015 at the Olympia exhibition centre, in central London (UK).   For further information about the trade show, please go to:   http://www.infosec.co.uk/   For further information about UBIFRANCE, please go to:   http://www.ubifrance.com/
