About Jean-Luc

I’ve been in innovation now for quite some time: research, large companies, institutional funding in France and Europe, and startups. I’m 55…

My first robot

My first robot. It could walk, move its arms and turn its head, using a single mechanical source! Pure XIXth Century technology…

I am currently working on a new project, Shaman, a startup selling very light personal HW & SW systems delivering behavioral information to any of us, some kind of « digital mirror ».

I am also co founder and advisor of VESTA-SYSTEM, a software company for energy efficiency based in Grenoble, France. In 2008 I founded with friends Kalray, a company selling a multi-purpose many core featuring 256 cores on a single chip. In between these entrepreneur activities, I worked in 2009 and 2010 as Smart Grid Director towards EDF Group Europe’s 40 million customers, and I was based in Yello Strom, Germany while traveling around the UK and France. Previously, I worked at CEA-DRT, now CEA Tech, a 4,000 researcher technological research center, where I was in charge of research programs in software. Previously, I worked at EDF R&D center, in Artificial Intelligence applications (e.g. I designed during my PhD an AI system able to explain the main events which caused the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in 1979 using qualitative reasoning and physics), program specification and automatic generation, numerical simulation and other things as well.
