LINAGORA Labs, R&D team
Bringing you our experience, our relationships and the full range of our services for your projects around open source software.
LINAGORA Labs in Toulouse and Paris
The Research and Development (R&D) teams, gathered within the "LINAGORA Labs" entity include engineers, researchers, and PhD students who are experts in artificial intelligence, machine learning and DevOps.
Located in Toulouse and Paris, our researchers work to create innovation. The goal is to give back our work to open-source communities and to enable the improvement and design of products with high usage value.
The team is actively involved in leading French and European research projects and focuses on topics such as artificial intelligence, speech recognition, cloud platforms and natural language processing.
We study the scientific locks that allow us to propose ethical technological innovations that are independent of GAFAM (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft) and BATX (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent and Xiaomi).
They are part of the creation of a 3rd digital way based on the philosophy stemming from free software. Moreover, we are convinced that Europe can build a new, more inclusive and sustainable IT world.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) ethics
LINAGORA has recently undertaken significant R&D efforts in the field
of ethical Artificial Intelligence (AI). Approaches stemming from AI and especially Machine Learning are indeed promising in relation to the subjects we wish to position ourselves on. The ethical character is linked to the respect of personal data and the transparency of the algorithms
permitted by the open-source model.
Collaborative Research Projects
LINAGORA Labs participates in collaborative research projects to study and remove scientific
and technical barriers associated with its software product offering. These projects funded
by the European Commission and the French State involve prestigious international research laboratories
and innovative companies.
LINAGORA Labs collaborates intensively with academic and industrial research laboratories. This collaboration takes various forms:
LINAGORA collaborates with a research laboratory: LIX (Computer Science Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique) and IRIT (Computer Science Research Institute of Toulouse).
Collaborative research projects
LINAGORA collaborates with a consortium of academic and industrial research laboratories. We participate in ANR (National Agency for Research), PIA (Programme d'Investissement d'Avenir), H2020 (European Horizon 2020 projects) and regional (Occitanie ReadyNov region) projects.
