The Iseult project magnet being installed at Neurospin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a nominal magnetic field of 11.7 teslas (T) on July 18, 2019. This is a world record for a whole-body magnetic resonance imager (MRI) magnet, the culmination of years of R&D, at the forefront of innovation in the field of superconducting magnets.
HEALTH ＆ LIFE SCIENCES | DEFENCE ＆ SECURITY | ENERGIES | NEW TECHNOLOGIES | ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
While the development of artificial intelligence depended until recently on software modules installed on centralized IT networks and servers (the Cloud), its future will also be shaped locally. The multiplication of connected objects (Internet of Things or IoT) requires a decentralization of artificial intelligence.

Inspex is a mobile detection device that can be attached to a white cane to help visually impaired individuals locate obstacles more effectively, in three dimensions. The technologies developed for this project could find applications in many areas, including smart homes, drones and factories of the future.
ENERGIES | NUCLEAR FUSION | NUCLEAR ENERGY
Tritium, a hydrogen isotope produced or used at civil and military nuclear facilities, is a research challenge particularly in the energy sector. TRANSversal Actions for Tritium (Transat) is a multidisciplinary project that aims to improve knowledge of tritium management in fission and fusion facilities.

L’Europe développe un système d’aide à la décision et d’autogestion qui informera les personnes, ayant survécu à un AVC, de la corrélation entre leurs activités quotidiennes et le risque d’un second AVC. L’enjeu est de mieux prévenir et de réduire le nombre de cas de personnes subissant un deuxième AVC
SIMULATION ＆ MODELLING | COMPUTING
In the global race to increase the power of supercomputers, it has become vital to keep improving processor architecture. The ExaNoDe project, coordinated by the CEA, aims to develop new nanoelectronics technologies and disruptive integration solutions to design the first European exascale computing processor.
INNOVATION FOR INDUSTRY
Step inside the high-tech world of the CEA and the startups it supports and discover the innovations that are helping make businesses more competitive.
