Keynote Talk: Networks at work in the Aerospace Industry

Chritophe Diot
Safran Analytics (France)


Christophe Diot received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from INP Grenoble in 1991. With INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (1993-1998), Diot pioneered diffserv, single source multicast, and peer-to-peer online games. At Sprint (1998-2003), he pioneered Internet measurements. Diot was with Intel Research in Cambridge UK from 2003 to 2005. At Thomson/Technicolor (2005-2015), he launched two successful research labs in Paris and Palo Alto (with major contribution on privacy, recommendation, and content delivery architectures) before serving as the Technicolor Chief Scientist. Diot joined SAFRAN in 2015 as the CTO of Safran Analytics, where he is in charge of building big data plaforms and developing analytics silution for the Safran Group. He has around 40 patents and more than 300 publications in major conferences and journals, and is an ACM fellow.


This presentation will cover the main two aspects in networks and communication in aerospace industry. On one hand the challenge of digitizing the supply chain poses important challenges to this industry.  On the other hand, aircrafts have tens of networks, all physically isolated, that represent an important source of complexity and weight, and also threads in terms of robustness, security, and availability. In both cases, we will describe the context, challenges and technologies that are involved in the transformation of networks in aeropsace industry.
