Founded in December 2019, StatInf is a spin-off Inria operating within critical embedded systems industries like defense & space industry, automotive industry or avionics.
StatInf ensures such operational safety by using a statistical analysis of the execution of the programs on multicore microcontrollers.
The StatInf analysis steps are patented and they are based on Extreme Value Theory which provides relevant metrics on the operational safety and other relevant characteristics of the embedded system. Combined with our expertise in embedded systems, our customers are able to fully embrace the aforementioned technological progress as:
- StatInf helps its customers to build provable embedded systems that meet safety criteria and/or standards (such as DO-178 in avionics and space);
- StatInf solution optimizes the use of the hardware by the software for a decreased energy consummation up to 60%;
- StatInf solution guarantees controlled development cycle times, thus mastered costs by automating and shortening the test phase from weeks to minutes.
Working closely with Inria, the leading research institution focusing on computer science and applied mathematics, StatInf has been founded by two experienced researchers who participated in numerous collaborative R&D projects with large industrials (Airbus, Thalès, Valéo, etc.) which highlighted the need of provable operational safety, now addressed by StatInf. The respective expertise of the founders in statistics and time critical embedded systems is at the core of our technology.
StatInf commercializes a software implementing its non-intrusive solution based on statistical analyses of the execution of programs.
People behind StatInf technology
Dr. Adriana Gogonel
CEO of the company, has a PhD in statistic from the University Paris-Descartes, followed by a 6-year postdoctoral fellowship at Inria. At the end of the 6 years at Inria raises the idea of creating the company as a necessity to transfer the technology supported by two patents that Adriana and Liliana co-wrote. Adriana is supported by Inria in her company creation process and she benefits in that context from an 8-month entrepreneurial training at EMLyon.
Dr. Liliana Cucu-Grosjean
Scientific Leader of the company, has a PhD in computer science from the University of Paris-Saclay and an accreditation to supervise sustained research at Sorbonne University. Her work focuses on the use of statistical and probabilistic approaches for the design of cyber-physical systems. Author of more than 60 articles and several patents, she has carried out numerous national and European collaborative projects for Inria.
Dr. Slim Ben Amor
Technology Development VP
Dr. Slim Ben Amor is the VP technology of the company. He joined StatInf in November 2020 after his PhD defence. Slim prepared his thesis at Inria and Sorbonne University under the coordination of Liliana Cucu-Grosjean, thesis treating « Scheduling of Tasks with Dependencies and Probabilistic Execution Times on Multi-Core Processors ».
Rihab Bennour is an embedded systems research engineer having a Master 2 from the University of Paris Saclay on embedded systems specialization. Rihab joined the team in January 2020 after her internship at CEA.
Kossivi Kougblenou is an embedded systems research engineer having a Master 2 from the University of Paris Saclay on embedded systems specialization. Kossivi joined the team in April 2020 for his internship and continued as an engineer starting October 2020.
Marwan Wehaiba El Khazen
PhD student research engineer
Marwan Wehaiba El Khazen has prepared at StatInf his Master 2 internship in Mathematics, Vision and Learning (MVA) from ENS Paris Saclay. At the end of his internship, in October 2020 he joined StatInf as a CIFRE doctoral student.
With 10 years of experience as a sales director in the embedded systems industry, Jean-Pierre now puts his skills and experience at the service of the company. He is in charge of StatInf’s commercial strategy and its development in France and abroad.
