CRI Research Seminar: Pauline Provini

Birdsong for human(e) voices We share remarkable similarities with birds. Among them, bipedalism and complex language are two traits often seen as human specificities, yet also present in birds. In my long-term fellow project, I want to focus on birdsong to build a new generation of vocal prostheses. Patients suffering from an advanced stage of laryngeal cancer often have to undergo a total surgical removal of the larynx, which is the human voice source. To recover the ability to speak, a prosthesis, mimicking the vocal folds, is usually placed between the trachea and the oesophagus. The exhaled air crosses a vibrating element and produces a substitute voice. Unfortunately, the created voice is of poor quality: it is weak, with a low pitch and sounds mechanical. In addition, the limited lifetime of the devices, due to biofilm coming from mucus/material interactions, forces a frequent device replacement. To date, there is no voice prosthesis lasting more than 3 months and able to reconstruct a natural-sounding human voice. In this context, birds should attract attention. First, their vocal repertoire is incredibly diverse, with pitches spanning from 100 to 12 000 Hz, compared to only 85 to 255 Hz in human speech. Moreover, their unique vocal organ, the syrinx, produces sounds from the vibration of membranes, located in the wall of the syrinx, unlike in mammals. Finally, birds modulate the primary sound with motions of the entire vocal tract, which is probably linked to the diversity of sounds they are able to produce. By exploring the anatomy of the vocal system in a broad range of birds species, and quantifying the 3D motions of the vocal system during sound production and modulation, we want to build a predictive aero-acoustic model we can use to ask “what if” questions and understand cause-effect relationships between shape, motions, and produced sounds. I will present the interdisciplinary approach we use in the CRI Birdsong team, integrating biology, physics, and computer science to provide the fundamental principles to the design of a new generation of vocal prostheses that will produce voices that sound more humane.

[Premiers Cris] Épisode 3 : MOOC 'LA PETITE CULTURE NUMÉRIQUE : le développement du tout-petit à l'ère numérique'
La diffusion de l'épisode 3 du MOOC 'La petite culture numérique : le développement du tout-petit à l'ère numérique' sera suivi d'un débat avec des intervenant.e.s.

Synopsis Dans une démarche interdisciplinaire, ce MOOC réunit de nombreux acteurs et actrices de la petite enfance (chercheur•e•s, professionnelles de petite enfance, designers et entrepreneur•e·s, acteurs et actrices politiques, etc). En cinq épisodes, ce MOOC questionne la relation du jeune enfant aux outils numériques et encourage l’éveil de l’esprit critique, autour d’un sujet encore en pleine exploration.

Bande-annonce : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHgpigmjNy8

Épisode 3. Ça se complique Si des effets néfastes sur le développement socio-cognitif et langagier de l’exposition de l’enfant de moins de 3 ans à la télévision ont été montrés, les recherches concernant les outils numériques mobiles (tablettes, smartphones, jeux vidéos) sont encore incertaines. Cet épisode propose de se questionner sur les différences entre causalité et corrélation, sur le lien entre contexte, contenu et contenant mais aussi sur les biais de la recherche clinique et en laboratoire. Afin de mieux comprendre les enjeux entraînés par l’utilisation du numérique chez le jeune enfant, la dédiabolisation des écrans et l’accompagnement à la parentalité apparaissent comme des réponses pertinentes.

Intervenant.e.s

Estelle Cheminat, Directrice adjointe de crèche Marie-Noëlle Clément, Psychiatre, Directrice de l'Hopîtal de jour pour enfants André Boulloche Olivier Grugier, Maître de conférences, Sorbonne Université / INSPE de l’Académie de Paris

Inscription gratuite mais obligatoire.

L'événement sera retransmis en ligne et en direct. Nous vous transmettrons le lien très prochainement.

CRI Research Seminar: Jake Wintermute

Distributed Approaches to Teaching and Doing Synthetic Biology

Emerging applications of synthetic biology promise major changes in medicine, food, ecology and other domains. Even as the impacts of genetic technologies become more diverse and widespread, the institutions that develop them remain homogenous and centralized. The result is substantial public opposition to many new biotechnologies.

What if we, the scientific experts, are doing everything wrong? This talk will be a conversation about strategies for including more people in the process of doing research and in setting research priorities. Who should be doing synthetic biology and what are their motivations for doing so? How can we balance expert knowledge with public values? What would a popular version of biotechnology look like and what would it take to transition from our current practices?

Thematic Workshop : Action Learning and AI In Educational Contexts

Artificial Intelligence is now a part of our normal lives. We are surrounded by this technology from automatic parking systems, smart sensors for taking spectacular photos, and personal assistance. Similarly, Artificial Intelligence in education is being felt, and the traditional methods are changing drastically. In teaching, the use of virtual and augmented reality has been on the rise, exploring different means of interaction and student engagement. Based on constructivist pedagogic principles, augmented reality pretends to provide the learner/user with effective access to information through real-time immersive experiences.

This thematic workshop is focusing on the role of AI for education and social change. Our speaker Atish Gonsalves will dedicate his speech in this matters. Master students' will also present their research topics and internship experience related to Education Technologies.

Our speaker : Atish Gonsalves, Humanitarian Leadership Academy, UK

Atish Gonsalves is a social technologist, entrepreneur and the Global Innovation Director of the Humanitarian Leadership Academy based in London.Atish has consistently implemented successful educational-technology (edtech) solutions that have helped democratize learning for thousands of learners in difficult contexts

Please registred here for the event. The event will take place virtually. Additional information will be sent by email.
